The Simplified Guide to Buying a New HDTV System

This holiday season, many people will be delving into HDTV for the first time -- perhaps on a tight budget. With Black Friday just around the corner, and some amazing deals likely to be offered, the newbie buyer needs a lot of help wading through the new HDTV technology. At the iPod Observer, John Martellaro has written a Simplified Guide to HDTV Buying for the newbie.

Topics covered include:

  • Rear projection TVs vs. thin, flat screens.
  • Plasma or LCD?
  • What to watch out for on discount HDTVs.
  • Considerations for the audio part of HDTV.
  • How to evaluate HDTVs in the show room.
