Dulcinea's Insight

  • Establish how you will be using your TV. Do you want a home theater system complete with external speakers, a DVD player, and other high-tech paraphernalia? Are you concerned about using the set for video games? Consider the size of the room it will be in, the lighting, and the possibility of wall-mounting the unit. (You’ll want high contrast for a well-lit location.)
  • Figure out what you want to use the set for and how much money you’re willing to part with (and don’t forget the cost of peripherals like cabling), then look further down our guide to get a price and a vendor.
