Samsung LN52A750 LCD HDTV
Introduction I recently saw a CE news headline that read something along the lines of, “Report states that HDTV manufacturers must add more features and interactivity to compete in the future marketplace.” I’m not sure anyone really needed an official report to glean that pearl of wisdom. As performance and price amongst the big-name brands become increasingly similar, features and design play a larger role in distinguishing one TV from the next. With its 2008 line of high-end LCDs, Samsung has gotten aggressive in both respects. The Touch of Color aesthetic aims to catch your eye on the showroom floor, while features like media streaming and RSS feeds give the “connected” user something to be excited about. Of course, features and design don’t mean much if the TV’s performance is sub-par, but that’s not a concern here. The 52-inch, 1080p LN52A750 ...

Vizio VW22L 22-Inch LCD HDTV
Introduction While the home theater market concerns itself with larger, thinner displays with some reaching sizes of 100 inches or more, I’ve become increasingly interested in smaller, more affordable LCD displays. When I bought my house I set about getting an appropriately sized display in each of my three bedrooms and with a projection screen system in my main room I’ve been all but set when it comes to HDTV’s. However, having lived in my home for two years now I’ve noticed that my viewing habits don’t always fall within the confines of where I’ve placed larger displays throughout my home. For instance, I do a bit of work at my kitchen table which has a semi-obstructed view of my main projection rig, however I’m always a bit annoyed at having to power up the main rack in order to view ...

Sharp LC-37D64U LCD HDTV
Introduction I think I’ve been spoiled by my job.  Over the past year, most of the TVs I’ve reviewed have fallen in the 46- to 52-inch range.  When I first unpacked this 37-inch LCD, my reaction was, “Aww, how cute. It’s just so … little.”  But the truth is, if I were actually buying a new TV, this is probably the screen size I could afford.  The price of flat panels has fallen dramatically over the past few years, but these TVs still aren’t cheap.  It’s one thing to say that $2,500 is a good deal on a new 46-inch 1080p LCD; it’s another to actually shell out the cash yourself. In the real world, a lot of people still shop in the sub-40-inch range and consider a 37-inch TV to be a big step up from their old 27-inch CRT.  ...

Toshiba 52XF550 LCD HDTV
Introduction Over the past two years, Toshiba has really elevated its LCD game to compete in the higher-end realm with companies like Sony and Samsung. I was quite impressed with last year’s high-end 52LX177, a 120Hz 1080p model whose performance rivaled that of pricier 120Hz models on the market. This year’s follow-up, the 52XF550, boasts a new implementation of the company’s ClearFrame 120Hz technology and incorporates the Super Narrow Bezel cabinet design. Yet its $3,299.99 MSRP still puts it the lower end of the price spectrum for a 120Hz LCD. Naturally, I was anxious to get my hands on this new TV to see if Toshiba could again prove itself a formidable competitor in the 120Hz category. Set-up The goal of the Super Narrow Bezel cabinet design is to put less frame around the screen to draw more attention to the image ...

The Basics: This 52-inch LCD is part of Mitsubishi’s Diamond Series, which designates the company’s highest-end offerings. It’s loaded with features, starting with Mitsubishi’s Smooth 120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120Hz to reduce motion blur.
