Last-Minute Super Bowl HDTV Buying Guide

Gizmodo has a nifty guide to snagging the perfect HDTV for this Sunday’s Super Bowl. They offer three picks, ranging from roughly $1,300 to $6,000 in price.

Pioneer Elite Pro-FHD1 $6,000
Sony XBR2 $3000
Panasonic TH-42PX60U $2000 (but seen at some online retailers around $1300)

Presumably, the television sets will work throughout the rest of the year as well. — BEN POPKEN

    These are some good, mass-market TVs. You’d be happy with any of these (especially the Pioneer)… I know I would.

    If you can wait a few days past the superbowl, this 56″ 1080p Samsung is $1669 shipped from Amazon.com (which means no tax for most people as well). Fantastic deal. I just ordered one, should show up tomorrow or Monday.

    and look at the hideous picture on the screen, too!

    A really good consumer would save the money, figure out which friends have a high-def TV, and go over to *their* house for only the cost of donating some beer to the cause.

    This blog has a pro-Chicago bias.
