How can I evaluate a projection TV?

Evaluating a Projection TV

The best projection TV for you isn't necessarily the one that costs the most or takes up the least room. Before you make a purchase, check for these things:

  • Be sure your set has at least one and preferably two HDMI inputs This is to make sure your set will work with cable boxes, satellite receivers and HD DVD players.
  • Make sure the TV you're looking at displays colors to your liking. If you're looking for great blacks, it's best to consider DLP. Don't like the rainbow effect? Look at a more expensive set with three separate chips or consider LCD.
  • Before you make your purchase it's a good idea to walk around the TV, so you can make sure the image quality is pleasing to you from different angles.
