HDTV Introduction

It used to be so simple to shop for a TV. You would walk into a store, and the only thing that mattered was how large you want your TV. Now there are different HDTV broadcast standards, different type of video/audio inputs, different TV technologies …. LCD, DLP, plasma, CRT, LaserVue, SED, FED, OLED … how confusing!

Be informed. Below is a list of “things to look for” in a High Definition TV (HDTV), and then a description of each TV technology with a list of upside and downside attributes for each one.
