6) haven't found anything but if you find something let me/us know. Actually the Peerless has an arm which extends and can tilt H&V, but it's $500.


8) the 1024x852 ALiS will look much better up close, but overall the 852x480 should be better. I think the 1024x852 will look better with HD, but others might disagree.

You cannot just use a breakout cable on a VGA port and make it component. You need a transcoder. That said, some ports do allow both because they have transcoding built in. I don't know which way the Panasonic works, but Glauco Bruzzi will hopefully chime in here.


It will not be great with a PC if you want to use text-based stuff. Light surfing is fine, but that's about it. The ALiS models, however, won't help here.


Depends how far away you are. If you are close, you might like HD better on the ALiS set. If you are not close, I see no advantage.

1) Yes.


2) Yup, With both cables connected S-Video disables composite.


4) Yes. Same optional cards available for the 42" and 50" fits the 37".


5) www.visualapex.com


8) The 37" has smaller pixels than the 42" ED Display (Same count).

Sitting at 7 feet the PQ will be as good as the HD display IMO.

And regular TV looks better on ED Displays.

No, its an EDTV. E meaning Extended, as the definition is not high enough to get an H for High, but its better than Standard definition.


There's lots of discussion about ED vs HD around here. The upshot is a lot of people can't see the difference, some can and some say that they should be able to. Its a lot to do with screen size and viewing distance.


It will accept and display HDTV signals (very nicely).

Glauco, yes, next year says Panasonic.


There should be a 37" ALiS 16:9 Hitachi sometime, somewhere.
