Now that I have a new job, I’m planning on buying an HDTV in the next few weeks. I have a few questions, though. If they sound like newbie questions, it’s because they are The systems I plan to play on this TV are an Xbox 360, Xbox, N64, Sega Saturn, and PC.
I’m planning on going with 1080p, but I’m considering stepping down to 720p due to cost. Is 1080p worth the extra cash?
What brands are worth buying, and which ones should I stay away from? I’m thinking of going with a Samsung after seeing how nice it looked in the store…
I read FubarDuck’s thread about HDTV Lag, but I’m still a little confused on it. Let’s say I go with the 1080p TV, play my original Xbox, and get lag. All I need to do to fix it is order one of those VGA boxes, right? What about if I buy a 720p set, or if I play any of my older systems? If I connect my PC through a VGA input on the TV, will it lag?
Is there anything else I should know as a first-time buyer? Are there any other questions I should consider asking, but didn’t?
