They're virtually the same. The black one is likely a slightly newer model, judging by the date on the PDF specs (2006, while the silver one has a 2005 spec date) but that could just meant he black one has been corrected or revised more recently.
I looked through the specs side-by-side. The silver model mentions "music" and "stereo system" while the black doesn't -- however they have the exact same inputs/outputs and other technical features. Same remote, same picture features, same audio support, etc.
Of course these are both CRT's, I'm assuming you realize that.
Hey, what's wrong with a crt hdtv? They're somewhat cheaper just heavier but is the picture quality the same and is a lcd that much better?
I'm buying a hdtv next week when my check comes in the mail.

Picture quality is fine for most CRT's, especially direct-view tubes like these, but CRT's are huge, heavy, power-hungry, and generate a ton of heat. I haven't paid for a CRT of any type (monitor or TV) in years, and would personally never go back. All PC monitors in my house are now LCD, the family room TV is an SXRD, and our bedroom TV is a plasma. The only tube left in the house is my daughter's 27" Wega. As soon as I can swing another free TV from somewhere, or get a helluva deal, or she leaves for college and takes it with her, that one will be gone as well (although as far as CRT TV's go, nothing beats a Wega).
