    Long story short I was going to go plasma. Went to best buy, saw the panasonic st60 and was going to buy it until I found out that they don't sell the item, it's just a demo item on their floor. Looked at a samsung plasma in my price range and found out that even in a little bit of light the...

    I had purchased a Vizio m551d which is pretty highly rated by CNET and others. The found the picture quality quite amazing and was generally very satisfied with the unit despite it's weak remote, however one thing I really could not get past was the light bleed issues with the RAZOR Edge LED...

    I would definitely go for the vizio if not for the bad things I have heard about the remote. I saw where someone taped part of a tin can (seriously??)to reflect the ir blaster. It seems like to me the Visio has a better picture when I looked at them in store and just reading and watching...

    Hey Guys, Just helped my father-in-law setup his new Vizio M1d and all was going well yesterday. For some reason, the sound on the cable box input setting has now stopped working. It's kind of a strange setup because he's working with SD cable service even though his cable box is HD. At the...

    Have been looking at the TV's below pretty seriously. I'm not concerned with Smart functions as I'll be using my GoogleTV for that. Looking for best picture (particularly blacks) that won't break the bank. Bright(er) room so not leaning heavily toward plasma (I realize those have better blacks...

     A bit over a month ago I was in New York for a press event, where I ran into David Katzmaier, the Senior Editor/HDTV at CNET. I'm a fan of his writing, and I was curious about how he goes about reviewing televisions. Fortunately, David was very gracious and extended an invitation to visit his...

    Hey folks, I'm very near buying a TV and have basically narrowed it down to these two, though I'm open to other suggestions in the $700-800 range. I really like the look of the M-series and its currently $979 at BJs. My primary use will be for gaming and netflix, with blu-ray movies and TV...

    Hey folks, I'm looking around at buying a new HDTV. I'm hoping to get a 55" model (or in that range). Ideally, 3+ HDMI ports. Primarily will be used for gaming and movies, but I also have FIOS HD. 3D is not a must have, SMART is nice but also not a must have. Ideally would purchase from Amazon...
