Guide To High-definition TV
Posted 11 July 2005 - 11:44 AM
You're in your local consumer electronics store looking at two 42-inch plasma TVs side by side, and they're playing the same high-def demo footage that stores typically use to make TVs look good. Cosmetically, the two sets appear very similar--until you examine the little price/info placards. One set costs $4,499, the other costs $5,999. You then notice that one is described as an EDTV or Enhanced Definition TV ¹, and the other as an HDTV or High-Definition TV. Look a bit closer, and you may even notice (depending on the quality of the source) that HDTV plasma looks sharper. Which do you buy?
