Sony and Harris Interactive conducted a poll earlier this month to find out just how attached people are to their TVs.  The results are a bit surprising as it turns out over half of TV owners are unhappy with their current sets. Of those dissatisfied owners, 32% say that the size of their TV is the biggest problem.  We'll just go ahead and assume that means that those folks would like bigger TVs - it's hard to imagine many complaints the other way around.

When products are out longer, costs get lower and processes become more efficient, it's not uncommon to see prices drop.  That's not what's happening with LCD tech though - prices have been dropping consistently, with a huge spike over the last two months.

The Netflix streaming service is known for having plenty of movies and TV shows for you to watch at a nice low price.  It's also known for not having anything even close to new - something that the folks at Netflix are trying hard to change. This weekend they announced a new deal that's almost certainly a coup for the company.  'Arrested Development,' the prematurely cancelled Fox comedy series, is being brought back on the air.  Fox isn't going to be airing it though, nor is any TV channel.  The new episodes will be available exclusively on Netflix.

When we talk about the best deal for streaming video, there's no question that Netflix is still at the top of the list.  When we talk about quality though, Vudu reigns supreme.  They do it right, reaching near Blu-ray quality with HDX films. Today they've taken another step in the right direction, offering customers the ability to download purchased movies.  Simply swing on over to Vudu, go to your purchased movies list and hit "download."  Nice and easy.

Vizio used to be a name that wasn't worth talking about on a home theater site except to call it the best of the budget sets.  The company has really turned around over the last few years, and they've become a force to be reckoned with. The new M-Series Theater 3D televisions are the latest to come out of the company, and the impact that they have on the industry overall should be interesting to see.  Not only are they affordable 3D TVs, but they use passive 3D so users don't have to shell out for expensive glasses or worry about compatibility.

Portable audio is a difficult proposition for audiophiles.  The convenience is great, sure, but the sound quality leaves much to be desired.  HiFiMan aims to give it a boost with the new HM-101 DAC.  The HM-101 is quite small and boasts both a USB input for use with computers and a standard mini in for other devices.  "A friend asked me to develop a DAC that everyone could afford yet would substantially improve the sound of any conventional audio product," says HiFiMAN president Fang Bian.  The result is the HM-101 which he describes as "an affordable product for the masses yet with really good sound." Affordable is right - the HM-101 comes in at just $39.

The brand new E-Series Music Receiver from T+A aims to do a little bit of everything and to do it all well.  It's packed with plenty of options for sources and a good amount of inputs on the back.If you're playing a CD or streaming music from a PC or music server - you can stream both wired and wirelessly - your sound will go through a 32-bit dual-mono DAC.  Other sources will still get 24-bit 192kHz processing.
