    Hello all,

    Is there a time of year when TV makers come out with new models? I'm going to be getting a HD set(direct view) sometime soon and I'm wondering if I should wait. Are there any new models coming out soon, 1-2 months. i can wait a month, maybe two before I buy. Now that I have the money to buy one I'm VERY anxious to have one. Do the old models drop in price when new ones come out or are new ones cheaper? Thanks,

    Jason

    If you want a direct-view, it doesn't seem to me that there's any reason to wait. Advances are being made in other display types (DLP, LCD, Plasma) that may make those sets cheaper, but direct-views probably aren't going to change much, price-wise or feature-wise, within the next several months. Just make sure you get one with DVI/HDCP or HDMI to ensure compatibility with future devices (HD tuners, next-generation disc players, etc.).
