Best Big Screen TV: DLP versus Plasma versus LCD

Buying a big screen TV is getting more complicated and confusing. DLP, Plasma and LCD technology are all worthy of consideration. What it boils down to is usage and location. We'll keep this short and sweet and give you our recommendations for the most popular big screen technologies.

First up is DLP. DLP is the modern-day projection TV. The sets are a little bulkier than LCD and Plasma and aren't appropriate for mounting on a wall. We're big fans of DLP sets. They offer the most bang for buck and are a good choice for rooms that can accommodate a bulkier set. The caveat with DLPs is viewing angle.

TiVo Series3 Dual Tuner HD DVR Review

The TiVo Series3 Dual Tuner HD Digital Video Recorder is just what the HD community has been waiting for. It isn't cheap at $800 and a 3 year commitment is required to get the monthly fees down do $12 a month. However, dual cable card tuners and a new backlit remote along with 32 hours of HD capacity makes this a very attractive DVR to high-def addicts with the coin to pay for it.

We tested this new box on a Scientific Atlanta cable system using dual cable cards. We've written about our frustration with Cable Card installation and nothing much has changed. If you're an AV enthusiast you're likely to know a lot more about your equipment and installation than the technicians the cable companies send out for the installation. Unfortunately, they won't just send the cards and let you plug it in and activate.

Logitech Harmony 880 Universal Remote Review

One touch control for up to 15 components NULL Logitech's Harmony 880 Universal Remote is an improvement compared to the previous 760 model. The most important changes include the addition of more dedicated buttons for functions like pause and fast forward and a dock for recharging. Since a universal remote is designed to truly take over the duties of all the other remotes in the house it gets more of a workout and subsequently eats up the batteries. Making it rechargeable was a good move by Logitech.

Having more buttons is nice but ironically they tend to blend into the housing of the remote. The sleek design is attractive enough but we'd prefer a fat brick with bigger buttons. The small buttons take some getting used to. The LCD screen is okay but nothing special. It works.
