Plasma-Panasonic TH-50PX50U / Zenith Z50PX2D- PC Connection?

by mrporter1 / January 21, 2006 2:54 AM PST

I'm researching 50'' plasmas and have narrowed to the Panasonic TH-50PX50U and Zenith Z50PX2D. It seems that the Zenith is actually made by LG.

There is a lot more info out there about the Panasonic and the reviews are great, however it does not have a PC connection. (The Zenith does)

Is there another way to connect a PC? Would you rule out a model with no PC connection?
