This week, I'm kicking off a new feature for the TV/Video Blog. Each Monday, I'll highlight a different television, laying out some of the key specs along with the manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP). I will also link to a full review if I've written one.
The main purpose of this feature is to give you an idea of what is available in the marketplace. I'll be considering all different sizes and types of televisions from a variety of manufacturers, and I'll throw in my thoughts where appropriate. Hopefully, this feature will give those of you in the market for a new TV a good overview. I also hope it's fun for those of you who like to window shop and stay abreast of the latest technology.
Without further delay, our first TV ...
