What is the difference between the 
PDP-502MX and the PDP-505HD?

There is no difference of basic panel specification between PNT and PA model.
Both models have 1280 x 768 native resolution and HDTV signal (1080i/720p/480p/480i) compatibility.

The new technologies, such as "True Matrix Imaging", "Digital High Density Scaling" and "Continuous Emission Display" are incorporated into both models and both are 160% brighter and 280% better contrast ratio than previous models.

Since features were tried to design based on the imagined requirements of major customers of each sales company, there are some specific features that are built into only the PDP-502MX model or vise versa.

Please see below chart for "Feature-by-Feature" comparison.
