    Happy New Year to everyone on HTF!

    I have narrowed my purchase decision down to the 53" Panasonic wide screen or the 50" Toshiba, model 50H82.

    While cruising a few sites, I found reference to Toshiba model 50H81 with a MSRP of $2999.

    What differences are there between these two Toshiba models?

    The 50H81 is last year's model. The new models have better 540p upconversion, so that's the way to go unless you can get a real bargain on a 50H81.

    Thank you, Jan

    Somehow that is what I thought, but I am thrown by the fact that an on-line-store was offering the model at a higher price then BM stores are offering for the model "82" ($1999 at Best Buy).
