Plus: Answers to all your flat-panel questions

1. Why should I buy a flat panel instead of a tube TV or a rear-projection TV?
Tube TVs are comparatively cheap and their image quality is good, but they take up way too much space and weigh a ton.

Rear-projection TVs deliver the most picture for your dollar, but they are sensitive to the angle at which you view them (too many degrees up or down and the screen goes dim), so they don't work very well in living rooms and bedrooms, where people watch TV in assorted positions or while moving around.
