This model is not a HDTV set. This is a EDTV set with no Tuner. It does have speakers built in. This info was not easy to find on the box, but it was there. Also at my local store it had a large sticker on the set that said "this is a EDTV set" Too bad, it would have been in the back of my truck.
My local Costco has a Panasonic HDTV, model TH42-PM-504, for $1699.00. The model numbers don't fit anything on the web. This is the second time I've seen a Panasonic plasma at Costco with no mainstream way to research what it is. It is not an EDTV? Thoughts please.
