TR Forum Trepidations: LCD TVs and AMD price cuts
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
