DesignTechnica's got a great resource for buying your new HDTV - and how NOT to go about it.

A lot of good stuff in there, as well as some consumer watch-out tips.

A good high-def display minimizes motion artifacts without any assistance. When you?re eyeballing sets at the store, to assess the quality of their video processing circuits, just look for rapidly moving diagonal lines. If diagonal lines appear jagged, the set?s video processing is doing a poor job. An American flag fluttering in the wind is perfect demo material. Even a facial closeup can be revealing: Do the pores and lines on a speaking face remain mostly in focus?
