Don't-Miss HDTV Stories

Samsung BD-P1600

This Blu-ray player has an annoying front-panel cover, but offers terrific color performance and even has streaming video options.

Toshiba BDX2000

Great image quality saves the Toshiba BDX2000 from being just another mundane, low-cost Blu-ray player.

Panasonic DMP-BD60K

On all counts, the Panasonic DMP-BD60K is a well-made Blu-ray player, and it ranks among the best such devices you can buy today.

Samsung BD-P3600

This Blu-ray player delivers great-looking images and Internet streaming. But it falls down on the little things.

LG Electronics BD390

Great Blu-ray images and the best networking and streaming we've seen to date on a Blu-ray Disc player justify the LG BD390’s lofty price.

Insignia NS-WBRDVD

This Blu-ray player offers excellent image quality, wireless connectivity, and a pleasing Netflix interface, but it also stumbles in its Wi-Fi setup.

AOC L42H961

The 42-inch AOC Envision L42H961 LCD struggles with fast-motion content, but is otherwise a decent no-frills TV at a rock-bottom price.

Video: Three excellent HDTVs

If you’re in the market for a new HDTV, these three models from Samsung and Sony all have fantastic picture quality.

Vizio SV470M

The 47-inch Vizio SV470M LCD TV has a reasonable price and a good array of customization options, but you can find better picture quality elsewhere.

Cisco FlipShare TV

Cisco's FlipShare TV lets you watch your Flip videos--and those of your friends--on your TV, but works best with local videos rather than those streaming over the Internet.

Vizio VL470M

The Vizio VL470M is a handsome HDTV with superior image quality and tons of customizability options.

Vizio VT420M

The VT420M is one of Vizio's more expensive 42-inch, 1080p, 120Hz LCD HDTVs, but it's still a moderately priced set for its class.

Sony Bravia KDL-52XBR9

The Sony Bravia KDL-52XBR9 52-inch HDTV presents clear, well-balanced images, and it also offers an astonishingly large selection of Internet-video options.
