We've been telling people for years that burn-in just isn't a problem on modern plasmas, but honestly we haven't ever tried to put are money where are mouth is. Gary Merson doesn't mind trying though -- since it's not like he has to pay for the HDTVs he reviews -- and although he found that freeze

Panasonic's run of critical acclaim for its NeoPDP panels, and the V10 series in particular, just keeps rolling along. Given the positive reception the HD Guru gave Panny's G10-series set, it should come as no surprise that the higher-spec TC-P54V10 model came through its review with flying colors

Fans of the Pioneer Kuro plasma TVs that are riding into the sunset needn't worry -- based on the review from none other than the HD Guru, the THX-approved Panasonic TC-P50G10 is a more than worthy successor. Whatever tests the set had to pass to earn that THX badge, it was well deserved, too, wit

We expect Mitsubishi to make claims that its latest technology is the best ever, and we enjoyed seeing it for ourselves at CEDIA, as well as reading other praises. But it's another thing all together when Gary Merson gets to run his own tests and comes back with almost nothing bad to say, and that

Thorough and technically savvy, he relentlessly exposes the weaknesses of displays passing through his lab.

Leave it to Gary Merson, a.k.a the HD Guru, to really put Sony's XEL-1 OLED display to the test. He busted out some test bench equipment and found that while the blacks were vanishingly dark, colors were accurate and motion resolution was handled with aplomb, there were some peculiar issues with th

Switched Digital Video quickly became a bad word around here -- don't get us wrong, we want more HD as much as the next person, but not if it means we'll have to use our cable company's lackluster STB. Luckily TiVo owners will be getting a solution to their SDV woes soon, but our friend Gary Merson

Here at Engadget we just love the spring. No, it's not the because Winter is over and Summer is right around the corner. No, it's not because we're huge baseball fans.
