Those good sports over at PC Mag subjected themselves to the tough job of spending time with that 58-inch DLP HDTV from HP we first heard about at CES
, and the verdict is overwhelmingly positive. The 118-pound wobulator
takes up its fair share of living room space, but with a wide array of features, like built-in 2.1 sound, 1080p resolution, a menu system that's "just about perfect," and an extensive array of picture tweaking options, the trade-off is easily justified. The inputs, which are conveniently located in the front of the TV, include two HDMIs, two component-videos, a VGA, CableCard and two RF inputs, as well as a USB port for firmware upgrades. At $3,500, it's a lot cheaper than most other, flatter alternatives, so you might even have enough money left over to keep your PS3 fund alive.
