Shopping for a New HDTV

Filed Under: Misc - Other

Home Theater Mag has a new article about shopping for your new HDTV set. Jed basically skips the tech featuresets of various units, and tells you how to examine the image quality of different HDTVs.

He suggests to take your own reference DVDs (your own movies that you are very familiar with) to check them out on the sets you’re interested in.

“Make sure that some of the material has scenes of fast motion, as well as scenes with large areas of flat color, such as a blue sky or mostly dark scenes. This will let you observe the processor’s noise-reduction capabilities.”

He covers watching SD and HD material, and what to look out for. Great article.
