Home theater enthusiast print magazine, HDTV Etc., has been reinvented and relaunched as an online resource for consumers looking to get educated before they buy their next LCD, plasma, LED, OLED or front-projection HDTV.
"Consumers are rightfully confused when talking about HDTV," says Jerry Del Colliano, publisher of the new HDTV Etc. "HDTV Etc. explains in simple terms how to understand the difference between 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p video. The revamped publication explains 120 Hz and 240 Hz refresh rates, what Blu-ray player to buy, HDMI issues and much more. Before going to an independent dealer, a big box reseller like Best Buy or a warehouse store like Costco or Wal-Mart, consumers would be well advised to do their research on HDTVetc.com before they plunk down their credit cards."
HDTVetc.com syndicates dozens upon dozens of reviews of the latest 1080p plasma and LCD HDTV players, as well as dozens more front projector reviews from its sister site, HomeTheaterReview.com, so that consumers are likely to find comprehensive, professional reviews of the specific HDTVs that they are considering for purchase. These reviews cover both the upside and the often glossed-over downside of each HDTV being considered. The reviewers are professional video calibrators, former home theater print magazine editors and Hollywood film directors.
As Blu-ray booms as a consumer format, HDTVEtc.com has added 40-year-veteran video reviewer Bill Warren (Leonard Maltin Movie Guide, AVRev.com) exclusively to the HDTVEtc.com staff as Video Editor. Bill and his staff will review the latest 1080p, BD Live HD software from Hollywood studios. HDTVEtc.com also has nearly every commercially available Blu-ray player reviewed on the site.
HDTVEtc.com often offers consumers sweepstakes so that they can win home theater, audiophile and HDTV prizes. Entry is free. In May 2009, HDTVEtc.com is co-sponsoring a give-away where consumers can win a $1,325 speaker system from Internet retailer, Orb Audio.
