Getting The Best From Your HDTV

Bringing home your shiny new HDTV is just the beginning

A very smart man once told me, “Paul, don’t re-invent the wheel”. He wasn’t being derisive or mean, he was simply reminding me of a basic tenet that I sometimes forget. I was reminded of it today when considering how to write today’s HDTV article, and in my research came across a series written by Becky Waring for PC World magazine. It says it all, and does so far better than I could, so I am simply going to point you to it! She covers all the bases, and if you own (or are about to own) a HDTV, I’m sure you’ll find it well worth your time.

“Bringing home your shiny new HDTV is just the beginning of your home theater adventure. But don’t settle, as many HDTV buyers do, for just plugging your new set into your existing setup. The next steps you need to take after bringing your HDTV home are crucial to both your enjoyment of the set and getting the most out of your investment…”

[a brief aside: I seem to be coming across articles by Ms Waring more frequently of late, and I’m glad of it. She is top-drawer.]

  2. There are many good brands, LG, Samsung, Panasonic, Sony..I prefer Samsung after looking over reviews and asking about brands at stores. If you are going with 55 inch hdtv, consider plasma. Great on fast motion, brightness, good blacks, and a very wide viewing angle. (Up to 80 degrees!) No more burn-in issues on new sets. If you buy LCD, you may experience lag/blur on fast movement, (even with 120 cycle sets.) The response of the LCD averages around 6 to 8 milliseconds. A plasma is instantaneous, and measured in nanoseconds!!
