For digital television, the numbers sound impressive: two million TV sets sold in the last three years. However, most of those sets aren't being used to receive digital over-the-air broadcast signals.More >>
AP -- When you see the picture on a flat screen T-V -- your first thought might be: I want one. The picture is stunning.
Peter Logan with the electronics retailer Crutchfield says he likes to watch people's reaction to the pictures on these T-V sets. He says many people have the same reaction: Wow! The picture is sharp and detailed. Not unlike the picture in a movie theater. Logan says their jaw drops even more when they look at the price tag. A smaller flat screen T-V costs around 15-hundred bucks -- while a big screen will run as much as ten-thousand dollars. Some of these sets have a depth of just one inch. Logan suspects a 500 dollar flat screen T-V set won't arrive for at least another five years. Copyright 2002 Associated Press. All rights reserved.
