What HDTV should I buy? Its a question heard around the Internet every two seconds. Quickly followed by LCD or Plasma? Followed by more questions: screen size, refresh rate, resolution, etc. Normally, a quick search on Google or Bing will quiet my concerns about any tech purchase. In the case of buying an HDTV, Google was worthless, sending me repeatedly to adver-spam sites that do nothing more than duplicate Amazon.com's review listings. Bing proved a little bit more fruitful, directing me to the helpful CNET Reviews.
What I learned was that I could not rely on a review or single source to direct me to the HDTV that was right for me. The only way I was going to get a quality television was if I made the effort to research the options and understand from top to bottom everything there was to know before I walked into a store (and know that once I left that store, I was going home to order my HDTV online to save money).
