Panasonic TH-42PX75U or TH-42PX77U

by locohuge / May 2, 2007 12:42 AM PDT

I just bought the 75U model this past weekend thinking that this model had the anti-glare screen, according to the sales rep when I asked him he said yes this model has the anti-glare screen, only to find out from Cnet that only the 75U does not have the anti-glare screen.

Now should I return the 75U and get the 77U
What's the difference besides the anti-glare screen
Anybody, an Editor, please help

Thanks, Miguel from Jersey

Panasonic 75U versus 77U

- The 75 series are the cosmetic changes (from silver to black) from 60 series
of last year model. Their prices are pretty competitive ($100 - $200 more)
to the 60 series

- The 77 series have anti-glare and they will be $400 - $500 more than the 75

- The Z700 series have anti-glare and 1080p resolution and they will be
$400 - $500 more than the 77 series

Pioneer and Samsung will come out some plasma models /w anti-glare coating
this year (summer 07). The reflection from the plasma glass is annoying
so it's worth to get the anti-glare coating.

Thank you guys, so I think I'm going to return the 75U and get the 77U, since the sales rep told me that the 75U had the anti-glare screen.

thanks again, Miguel from Jersey

I gotta say, for most circumstances & most people, glare

isn't that much of a big deal. A couple hundred bucks for the small difference? Not me. A non-issue at a practical level. If not, how do you manage to stand flat glass windows? Do they make your life a living hell?

I think your right in a way, but my problem was with the sales rep, he sold me something I didn't ask for, that's my issue because I had read a little bit about the anti-glare screen but I wasn't sure which model had that option, but thanks anyways.

75 versus 77

I have not had a chance to see the 77 model yet. I have been looking for it, but the stores don't have it on the shelf yet here in San Diego. The stores advertise it for store pickup in their websites, but I called CC and they don't have it yet. I have seen the 75 up close at Circuit City, Best Buy and Fry's.

The 75 has the speakers in the bottom and is a bit more narrow...The 77 is a couple inches wider and has the speakers on the side......along with the anti-glare

In 42" plasma....check the Pioneer 4270 model also. A fine choice.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
