How to Compare HDTV Models Before You Buy — powered by ExpertVillage.com
Here’s a summary of some things to keep in mind before you buy an HDTV:
- Make sure that it is truly a full high definition HDTV, not HD compatible or HD ready
- Decide how big it is – measure the size of your room. Just because you have 62 inches space doesn’t necessarily mean you need a sixty two-inch television. (Keep in mind that TV size is measured at a diagonal)
- What is the HDTV’s resolution – 720p, 1080i or 1080p. 1080p (for progressive) means that when the laser, if you lock them in the better term in the back, scans it in one time, then you get one scan, one picture. Interlace or “i” is two scans for one picture. Go for one that is 1080p resolution. This is becoming the current standard.
