How To...Buy a New TV

Looking to buy a new TV? If you're not lucky enough to win the TV we're giving away, but still want something new, there are a number of resources available to you. A good place to start is with CNET's TV Buying Guide, which walks you through everything to look for in a new TV, including budget and room layout considerations. Have you found a good resource for information about buying a TV? Let us know in the comments! Both Best Buy and Circuit City are advertising their ability to get you set up with HD in 3 or 4 steps. Of course, this will be the costliest method of going about getting a new TV, but it will also be the easiest. Circuit City's site has an advantage over Best Buy's while in the research phase: they've partnered with Consumer Reports to bring buying advice (not product reviews, those you have to subscribe to Consumer Reports to get) to Circuit City's website. When you're in the research phase, learning about the new terminology or what to look for, this could be very useful. Consumer Reports' main site is also useful because they get into product recommendations. They have some information available without a subscription, and they have subscriptions starting at $6 a month for on-line access to their data.
