Sumi Das: If a flat screen TV is your high definition choice, then here is the big picture on buying one.
First, the only reason to pay top dollar for the highest screen resolution 1080p is if you have a 1080p DVD player or gaming system. If you just want high definition television, you will be fine with 1080i or 720p. Don’t just give when it comes to cables. To get the best picture possible, you want to spring for HDMI or DVI cable.
If you are using other cables, keep them short. The longer they are, the more the signal degrades. Finally, the best way to watch your favorite network is from a distance in a room where you can dim the lights and relax.
