TiVo Series3 HD

TiVo Series3 HD

Like many HDTV owners out there, we've been anxiously awaiting HD support from TiVo, and our wish has finally been granted. The TiVo Series3 HD Box ($800) is the first TiVo to include support for HD — it can record two HD shows while allowing you to watch another at the same time, thanks to the built-in CableCard slots (two of 'em) and its support for ATSC. Other improvements include a new backlit remote, THX certification, an OLED screen, HDMI and component video output, and optical digital audio out. It might be a little expensive for those with standard TVs, but if you've made the jump to HD, it's a no-brainer.

  • NuVision 52LEDLP TV

    In the seemingly never-ending battle for an even better picture, television makers have been adopting new technologies just as fast as they can. The latest is the LED-illuminated DLP, which is offered on the NuVision 52LEDLP ($4,400). Using LEDs to illuminate the DLP results in greater color gamut, and the ability to create deep blacks by controlling the brightness of individual LEDs — resulting in a fantastic 5000:1 contrast ratio. Other important specs include instant-on capability, a 50,000 hour lamp life, 1080p native resolution, and the reassurance that your picture will be the best on your block for a long time to come.

  • LG MW-71PY10 71-inch Plasma Television

    In the pantheon of home theater, there is nothing quite as cool as saying you have the world's biggest amp, sub, receiver, or, in this case, production plasma display. The LG MW-71PY10 Plasma Television ($60,000) measures an absolutely enormous 71 inches, making it the largest high definition plasma in production worldwide. Obviously for the well-heeled among us, any Daddy Warbucks that picks this puppy up will be delighted with its 1080p resolution and HDMI, DVI, component, composite, and RGB inputs. The only drawback (other than the price)? Trying to find a wall to hang it on — this puppy weighs in at almost 200 lbs.
