Last week I finally took the dive and purchased an HDTV. What did I end up with? Well I personally went with the Samsung PN50A460 for a variety of reasons (one of which was availability in my area). How did I come to the conclusion that this was the television for me? Well that’s a story that starts with lots of research. A lot of which I plan to put on this blog for everyone’s betterment.
There is a lot of information out there floating around about high definition televisions. It can be extremely confusing for the average consumer to go through and figure out what will work for them and what won’t. There are some many things to consider when buying a HDTV that one can easily get lost in the process (I know I did).
What I hope to offer you, the reader, is an easy to understand series on what to not only consider when purchasing a high definition television but the things to look for and avoid. Hopefully you can avoid the long and countless hours of research that I had to do.
Some thing we’ll be discussing are: 1080p vs. 720p, LCD vs. Plasma, viewing distance, connectivity (cables), and some more related topics.
Check back next week when we dive right in my looking at what exactly 1080p is and why you may or may not need it.
