Who doesn’t want to save money for the holidays?
Trying to decide which flat-screen TV to buy can be tough.
Despite the mess in the economy, millions of Americans are still spending, and the purchase that tops most of the lists is a flat-screen TV. If you’re going to fork over that much money, you want to get the most value for your dollar.
Consumer Reports just did a big ranking of plasmas and LCD screens. If you’re looking for one about 42 inches, their favorites were the Panasonic Plasma TH42 PX80U (retailing for between $700 to $1,000) and the LG 42PG20 (from $777 to $1200). Those are pretty wide price ranges so make sure you do some comparison-shopping to get the best deal!
