NOTHING COSTS MORE THAN IT USED TO:
Compared with 1999 sets, today's leading-edge TVs are cheap (Consumer Reports, January 31, 2014)
Posted by Orrin Judd at January 31, 2014 2:05 PMIf you still need a new TV to watch the Super Bowl, there's a good chance you'll get a good deal. That's true even among the leading-edge TVs--that is, models that comprise the 10 best TVs for the big game--the top-rated 65-inch Ultra HD Sony XBR-65X900A costs just $5,000.Think we're nuts? How is $5,000 for a TV a bargain?We'll explain. When you compare that Ultra HD Sony--which gives you four times as many pixels as a 1080p set and a jaw-dropping, stunning picture--to the first HDTV sets we tested in 1999, $5,000 is something of a steal.
