(Special Report) - A lot of TV manufacturers were pushing 1080p HD setups at CES 2007 earlier this year, but what’s the point? There is very limited HD programming that can warrant such an expensive investment, but maybe not. That was the attitude we got from nearly all of the TV manufacturers on the show floor. Panasonic, Samsung and Sony said the idea to push 1080p sets is mainly to push HD for the future. In essence, they want you to future-proof your entertainment boxes. All three went on to say that people don’t usually purchase TVs every two years, which is true, so it would be better if consumers would adopt the latest in TV technology to get ready for HD programming when it becomes readily available.

In our opinion, we would much rather wait for a little while for HD to become mainstream and prices to fall. Not to mention, technologies will only mature with HD TVs. Therefore, to get the absolute bleeding edge, you may want to hold off for a while before taking the plunge.
