    Toshiba has a Cinema Series and a Theaterwide series listed separately on their web site with model nbr 65H83 and 65HX83. From the specs, I noticed 2 main differences (some audio differences but I dont care). What is the main difference and advantaeg/disadvantage of these two series?


    Cinema Series



    Theaterwide



    PowerFocus HD4 CRTs

    PowerFocus HD II CRTs

    Built-in High Contrast Anti-Reflective TheaterShield

    Greetings

    The anti-reflective screen on the CS is not very anti-reflective at all. Seeing the two units side by side, glare was about the same.

    The TW series permits you to take the glare screen off ... which improves the image a lot. The CS does not.

    The CS crt's are supposed to last longer, but who really knows.

    Regards

    Thanks ! That helps a lot. If the price difference is not much, I can probably buy the Cinema Series(I like the appearance - I saw it on their web site - I hav to go see the difference at a local store).
