Cheaper HDTV Coming


Japanese consumer electronics giant Matsushita on Tuesday unveiled a new single-chip technology for high-definition TV sets that potentially could reduce the costs of producing them, making them more attractive to consumers who have been put off by their high prices. The company said that it plans to begin shipping the new chips at the beginning of August.


Hopefully this will be the kick in the pants HDTV needs to take off like a bullet. I know I'm still on the fence with pricing. It won't take much more for me to take the plunge.

I wonder if and when we'll see an effect.

Are they talking about DLP rear projection? I haven't been too impressed with DLP and LCD rear projection units so far. But still, lower prices are good. Posted Image

For the great picture you can get on a Tosh. 50H81, $2,000.00 is *NOT* a bad price, IMO. Posted Image
