This has all the markings of a Panny 42 SD unit...although the silver bezel is throwing me off some. Anyone else care to input on this?

It sure looks like the Panasonic 42" and the speakers look the same.


Some of the other specs are close, but not identical: (N=NoName; P=Panasonic)


Nominal contrast: N=2700:1; P=3000:1


Nominal brightness: N=550 cd/m; P=780 cd/m.


PC Aspect ratios: N=Normal, Zoom; P= Normal, Zoom, Wide


TV Aspect ratios: N=Normal + 2 zoom settings; P= Normal, Zoom, Wide, Justified, Auto.


Amplifiers: Both: 2 x 8w.


Dimensions: N= 1020x635x83mm; P= 1020x610x89mm


N has two composite inputs; P has just one.


My guess would be Panasonic, maybe a discontinued model; or else somebody has deliberately set out to make a replica.


BTW, the current model of the 42" Panazonic sells in the US for around $3600; I understand prices are ordinarily much higher in Scandanavia, and $3200 there sounds almost too good to be true.

The power switch is one the wrong side for the Panny though... But the stats are very similar. Esspecially the contrast ratio, and the "Justified" mode. Both are pretty dead giveaways for the Panny. Maybe Panny glass, but different in other areas?

A 'Kavo'? Still smells like Panny to me. Anyone else ever here of them?
