TR Forum Trepidations: LCD TVs and AMD price cuts

— 6:05 PM on July 25, 2006

A couple of forum threads have caught our eye today. To start off, forum member pete_roth is asking about buying an LCD TV that can be used as both a TV and a PC monitor. Forum regular Vrock points to the non-standard 1366x768 resolution many LCD HDTVs feature, while cautioning of the risks of buying from little-known manufacturers that could leave users with a lousy warranty, dead pixels, and the like. One must also consider the presence of HDCP, he says, a requisite for viewing high-definition Blu-ray and HD-DVD media.

Meanwhile, in our forum's AMD Asylum, the discussion rages on about which e-tailers have applied AMD's price cuts the most scrupulously. Newegg was a whole $89 off the mark with the Athlon 64 X2 4600+ at press time, but as regular TheDVDMan points out, retailers like ZipZoomfly aren't doing so badly.

Know of a store with particularly juicy prices on AMD chips, or do you have insight to share about HDTVs? Either way, feel free to register a forums account and join the fun!
