Welcome to this issue of Practical HT Guide Update.

To-day, Practical-Home-Theater-Guide.COM celebrates its first two years online!

It was exactly on November 18, 2003, when the first webpage went online.  Surely, in this relatively short time, a lot of things have changed - not only in this high-tech area - but also with the site content itself.

And the work on the site is a never ending adventure! As promised in the October issue of this monthly e-zine, I continued working on two new plasma-TV guides; in addition, I have also updated all content appearing under the Plasma TV Reviews section of the site.

More info on the new content is given below:


New Plasma TV Guides:

  • Protecting your Plasma TV Investment
    Simple steps you can take to keep your plasma TV unit performing at its best.

  • Plasma TV FAQs
    Answers to a comprehensive list of Plasma Television FAQs, covering use, technology, and even fictions you might have heard or read about.

Plasma TV Reviews for Archived Products


In the coming weeks, I will be revising most of the content appearing under the Front Projection TV section of the site.

This update will take us through a number of product reviews I have long been waiting for - including some interesting home theater projectors from Panasonic.

There are also two articles/guides in the pipeline that specifically relates to home theater projectors and video systems.

One of these guides will discuss the main differences or requirements, between  home theater projectors and business-rated projectors. The idea here cropped up following a query I received through the site feedback submission form.

The other article will discuss the issue of contrast ratio. Lately we have started to see some manufactures quoting values for contrast ratio in the region of 10,000:1. Surely, the higher the contrast ratio, the better should be the picture. But...

Will  the eye be able to perceive any difference in image quality between one having a contrast ratio of 5000:1 and another having a contrast ratio of 10,000:1? More on this in the coming weeks.

We hope that  'YOU'  will enjoy and profit from these new additions and updates to our site!

Stay tuned!
