Re: Need advice in buying a new TV...

When I was buying a new tv, a friend of mine told me to avoid the tv's that have a shiny frame because it reflects from the screen and is distracting.

^ It depends on how glossy the bezel is. Mine is a bit glossy, but it's not at all distracting.

I noticed that the glossy bezel tend to attract more dust, lol.

Re: Need advice in buying a new TV...

hey I have a dumb question, is there any way to hook up speakers to a plasma/lcd without having to use one of those audio recievers? My grandparents just moved in with us & I will no longer be able to listen to music from the computer in the living room, I will have to go to my bedroom & use my dvd player(I use cds). I have a regular tube tv now but I might get a plasma later this year.

Some TVs do have speaker outputs, I think. Check the rear panel.
