Between the tmo models 53X54 & 53TW54, what is the difference in the screen? The 53X54 has a more "square" screen if you will and the other is a more "wide" style. Both of them are widescreen and are 16:9 but is the first more suitable for 4:3 than the other?

It's interesting that the tw54 looks wider than the x54 (on the Panasonic website), but if they are both widescreen, and 16:9, they should be the same shape.

I couldn't find the specs on the tw54 but the twd64 is 53.6 x 56.5 (H x W) and the x54 is 5 inches narrower.

The dimensions you are talking about are overall cabinet size, and since there is more cabinet on the side of the twd64 than the x54, that is why it is wider.

As far as actual screen size/shape, they would be identical as they are both 16x9 53" sets.

There are only two geometry's available in TV's, these days that I know of.. 4:3 and 16:9....


Now cabinets to hold these screens come in all shapes and sizes for sure.
