    Other than the built-in HD tuner, what are the differences between the Mitsubishi WS-55511 and 55411? I've been told and read that the 411 should have the better picture, that the 511 is just a 311 with a HD tuner. Yet when viewing the two side-by-side the 511 appears to have the better picture. Could those of you knowledgeable about the Mitsubishis clarify the real differences? Which would you buy? Thanks.

    I would get the 511. I keep hearing that the 511 is the same as the 311 except for the tuner. NOT TRUE. The only similarity is that they share the same cabinet.

    The 511 has the following improvements and features over the 311

    Better CRTs
    Better Lenses
    IEEE 1394 ( Firewire)
    VGA input
    Digital cable input
    digital outputs
    Integrated tuner
    Ability to adjust color decoder in the service menu
    ( This allows you to easily fix red push)
    Better remote

    The 411 has the following improvements over the 311

    Better Lenses
    Quad field focus
    additional 1080i input
    additional format modes in 480p
