The z77 is older than the pz80 and the new generation has brought a long list of new improvements, better blacks being the most important one. The only difference between the z85 model and z80 model is intelligent frame creation, and some 24p features. But if you plan on using it as a pc monitor none of those features are really needed.
So basically pz80 = pz85, except for some minor features.
