How to Buy an HDTV

I recently completed my latest HDTV buyers' guide for PCMag.com and it's chock full of information that will help guide shoppers toward finding an affordable TV that provides the best viewing experience for their particular room environment - how, where, and when you watch TV is often as much an influence on picture quality as is the performance and configuration of the TV.

I was hoping to see the panasonic viera g1 on the list for the plasma. Isn't it any good, it has thx certification, and practically same specs as pz85u right?

Have you tested the panasonic viera G1 yet?

I recently completed a review of Panasonic's S1 series plasma and I'm expecting a G10 series plasma to arrive this week.

When will you be reviewing Samsung PN58B650 & PN58B850/860?

Kinda sad those are missing from the guide since I've been looking in their direction.

awesome job on the guide!
