Prey Captured: 720p Plasma TVs $1400-2200

  • The Pioneer PDP-5070HD is universally regarded as the best 720p 50" DLP. It has the depest blacks, best color reproduction and video processing of any DLP in it's price range.


  • A very close second is the Pannasonic 50px600u which costs about $800 less, but doesnt have quite as good video processing.  If you have a good upscaling DVD player and feed it a progressive cable/satellite signal, however, this should not be a problem and save you  a good amount of money. Update: Tigerdirect now has this mode for $1400! making it a fantastic deal compared to the slightly better Pioneer.

  • Panasonic also makes an all black "professional version" that allows you to pick and choose extra DVI/HDMI slots for a cost.

Captured Prey Sighted: Video Cards

  • I like to think of this blog as me doing the work for you, but sometimes someone has done the work for me and I am just passing it along.   This is such a case.  Tom's Hardware does a monthly wrap up of the best video cards in every price range.  If you are looking for a new video card for your computer you need look no further than here.
  • Tom's also had a great test of video cards on olderAGP  systems here and here.
