Flat screen TVs have hit the mainstream this year. The lure of great picture quality, space saving design and more affordable pricing mean that flat screen is the must-have technology. However, there are currently 2 generations of flat screen technology available and it's important that you look for the correct one. This article gives you the facts you need to help you make an informed decision when buying your new TV.
If you see a flat screen TV at a real bargain price, think twice and ask "Is it HD Ready? ". If the answer is no you will not be able to enjoy the new generation of High Definition programming that arrives this year.

High Definition Television, or HDTV, is a new standard that delivers higher picture quality and better sound than traditional TV technology.
