want to move up to HDTV but just can't stomach the high price for the best 1080p
available. Like many people out there, you may be interested in moving up to an
affordable flatscreen TV for space savings at home and the better imagery of HDTV.
Many people are amazed and very happy with the quality of the lower priced HDTV's
for sale at most retailers. It is true, they are not as good as a top brand 1080p

prices will drop on current models. The TV market is much the way the computer
market is with technology. The latest and greatest is highly priced, but will
soon be improved upon and price will drop greatly.
