    I just got a Free Dish Network Receiver system with HDTV receivers and
    Video Recorders at

    So now i've got to make a Christmas list for decent priced HDTV sets.
    Any recommendations before Santa loads up?

    I'm thinking maybe $1,000 or so?

    I'm pumped now!!

    I just bought the Panasonic 30 inch 16:9 tube for $852 at circuit city and
    then bought the Samsung T-351 tuner refurbished online for $185 . used my old
    antenna and it works great. BG

    Hope you've got a strong back....I finally just gave in and got a LCD
    flat screen HDTV set. It takes up a LOT less space, is simple to move
    around (or mount on the wall), uses a LOT less electricity and costs a
    whole lot more. :) I was wondering if it was even worth it until I
    hooked up my DVI output from the DVD player and started watching some
    eye candy at 720p. Now I don't think I could ever go back.

  4. When considering any HDTV check the resolution capability of the set. I have
    noted that Best Buy lists the resolution capability of the HD screens they
    carry while other do not. Like the new Sharp Aquos. It is capable of
    1366x768, one of the highest I have seen so far. Most of the sets out today
    give an optimum horizontal pixel resoluton of 1280, while many do 1080
    vertical, but 768 vertical is a norm. None actually display at 1920x1080.

    The Aquos is fantastic. I shopped around for a while and settled on the
    Aquos. It has by far the best picture in the "don't have to mortgage
    your house to buy one" category. :)
