It's good to see REAL HD TV's coming onto the market now.
The whole "HD Ready" thing has been a big con to get the unsuspecting Joe Public to go out and spend shed-loads of cash on a new telly in the belief that it was "HD", when of course it is not (ok - it's "higher" def, but it's definitely not "high" def.). This was to give the manufacturers a break (and some income!) while they came up with cheap enough ways of making real HD tellies. This con has been aided and abetted by the HiFi/Video press who have without exception failed to point out that "HD Ready" is not "HD" and that you're going to be very disappointed in a year or so when HD content (HD DVDs etc) become available.
I feel very sorry for these punters and wonder how long it will be before they realise they have been conned - probably when they go out and spend even more cash on a HD DVD player and find that the picture isn't quite as good as it should be?
