Probably doesn't mean anything, but the specs (and the way they are laid out and phrased) look like Samsung and Cornea.

But which Samsung is it? I could not figure it out.


It is definitely the same as the Cornea.


Do you think it's worth buying for $2250?

Yes, Bruce, you have to be right. There are things about the way the specs are recorded that strongly suggest this is the very same display.


I guess we'll have to find out if it's any good and whether it's worth the number of yards in a mile + 10 years worth of the number of gifts a certain famous Christmas song provides - a gross or so

I don't know where to purchase one, but there is a large PC maker based in Texas who apparently has been known to sell plasma displays through their web site and some people find them to be a good place to buy. The CEO is a guy named Mike.

Some retailers (I think also the one in Texas) have a 30 day return policy. So you can give it a try and if you don't like it just send it back (but you'll have to pay for shipping).

Many of us with front projectors have found that the new Bravo D1 DVD player with DVI output gives us a big step in image quality. I found that DVDs look much better to me through it on my HT1000 than TheaterTek and way better than my RP82. However, I had a Sharp M20x that didn't support DVI-D input very well and the D1 didn't look better than the RP82 to me. If someone buys this plasma it would be interesting to see how the all digital path from the D1 (or the upcoming Samsung DVI DVD player) at 480p would look. I assume this plasma supports the DVI-D signal over the DVI-I connector, but the way their specs are written doesn't make it obvious to me that this is true.


If they offer the 20% discount in their home section where I wouldn't pay 9% sales tax, I might not be able to pass it up. There is a nice spot in my master bedroom where a 42" plasma would fit perfectly. I'll probably try my HT1000 with a small screen there before I decide, though.

I contacted Planar a couple of months ago but they didn't want to tell me the supplier of the glass they are using. The supplier of their 43" must be Pioneer but couldn't find any place which sells it.
