anybody know the difference between these models? i posted in another thread but wanting to make sure it got noticed. I have a family member at vesy buy who can get the wt-a42 at cost but need to make sure it will have what i need. The remotes, inputs, weight, etc all look the same as far as i can tell.


thanx



i am moving soon, but i imagine i will have about a 8' viewing distance.


70% standard cable

30% svcd/dvd (480x480) interlaced


hopefully adding ota hdtv through a hdtv card in an htpc next summer.


would prefer direct view but the fiance wants no black bars and big, but watches almost purely cable.. gotta love that .


any opinions?


thanx in advance

According to some here, some advanced features are not present on the BestBuy Mitsus. Look at the menu on a Sears unit and look at one on a BB unit.


Others say that the models are the same except for the numbers, to avoid price matching.


I lloked at the Mitsu, and decided to go with the Hitachi.


PS Sears is very proactive in pricematching.

The BB models lack three things when compared to the standard models:


1: No manual color balance control


2: The shield is not color tuned


3: The VSM is not defeatable in the user menu


Decide for yourself if these features make the difference, although most retailers will sell theirs at the BB price! Negotiate!!
