Or, more likely, the 51 percent or 57 percent either
didn't know or didn't care. As CRTs give way to LCDs,
many next TV sets will be at least ED quality, like
it or not.

But I found this partcular bit of wisdom from that
site very informative indeed.


    To help address these and other questions
consumers may have as they shop for HDTV sets, Comcast
is sharing the following tips to help consumers with
their HD buying decisions this holiday season:


     -- Select the right resolution for your set size.
        1080i resolution provides a better picture on
        larger screens, while 720p resolution is better
        suited for smaller screens.
