I apologize that my blog posting has been lighter than usual lately. It’s not so much that I’ve been overly busy as much as it’s the simple fact that I’ve not found much that inspires me to write about it. So I’ve been putting up entries like this one where I pick your guy’s brains for stuff I want to learn about.
In this case it’s HDTV sets. There’s no big rush on this, but I want to know where you guys go to learn more about HDTV and what are the suggested specs one should look for when shopping for one. Anne, Courtney and I will be moving out of the in-laws place and back into an apartment sometime around the end of June or start of July after Courtney graduates from high school and one of the things we’ll eventually need is a new TV set seeing as our old one died just before we moved in here. Back then I asked for some advice as well, but it’s been two years since then and a lot has changed.
My questions run along the lines of should we go LCD or Plasma? Is there really a huge difference between 720P and 1080P that I should spend the extra bucks to get the latter? That kind of stuff. It’ll probably be some time before we get around to buying a TV, which means we’ll have to make do with the old 15 inch Sony TV/Monitor I got way back in 1988 with my Amiga 2000 as a TV set for awhile, but I figure now is the time to start educating myself so I’ll have a clue of what to shop for when the holiday sales season rolls around. If you’ve got some favorite websites with HDTV info then be sure to include links to them in your comments.
