Agreed. I was at a retailer this weekend that I used
to think hired knowledgeable salespeople who gave good advice-a retailer I've been going to for the past 10 years buying everything from a VCR to a plasma TV to my HD-A1.
Anyhow, I was looking to buy a new bedroom TV in the 20-27" range and he had the audacity to tell me that nobody made an HDTV in those sizes. I asked him what he was talking about, as several
manufacturers made HDTVs in that size and he said that the best you could do at that size was 720p.
Er, yeah. 720p is an HDTV standard, and at any reasonable viewing distance I challenge anyone to show me a difference between that and 1080p on a TV that size.
Sorry, that just annoyed me. I guess Best Buy moving in a few years ago has hurt these guys so badly that they can't afford to hire salespeople who know what the hell they're talking about.
