When last we left off in vinyl land, Micah Sheveloff and I were quite enthralled with the joys of wax and less so with those of the shiny digital disc. (Bone up here before you read any further.) After hearing things sound anew on The Dark Side of...

Kudos to our own Brett Milano for predicting the current legal skirmish between Avril Lavigne and the Rubinoos. S&V online readers will recall that, in his review of Lavigne's The Best Damn Thing, Brett was among the first (and possibly the...

Sony opened up the E3 expo early and with a bang- it announced that the rumors are true and that the current 60GB PlayStation3 will drop $100 in price and will now sell for $499. In addition, Sony will introduce an 80GB PlayStation3 that will occupy the $599 price slot.

Saw the second of three Rush shows I'm gonna catch on the 2007 tour last night at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ. Had on (naturally) a Porcupine Tree shirt and promptly sweated through it in the 90+degree heat. Ugh. Our seats were in the...

A good flat panel with a punchy image, good color and detail, an excellent remote control, and a tempting price.

When HP introduced its first line of televisions, after years as a leader in home computers, it featured both flat panel and rear projection sets. Now, however, the company sells flat panel LCD and plasma designs exclusively. Its two new LCD models are both 1080p. Its two plasmas are both 768p—an odd number that originated in the computer world and manages to linger on, at least in plasma designs.

Two that do one; one that does two.

LG shocked the consumer electronics world at CES when they announced that, not only were they coming out with a player that would play Blu-ray and HD DVD, but it would be shipping in less than a month. True to their word, it did, and I got one in to try out. Around the same time, Toshiba released a pair of second-generation HD DVD players. The model I look at here, the HD-XA2, is notable as it is the first HD DVD player to output 1080p. The Blu-ray camp (seeing as they had just released most of their players) had no such exciting newness beyond what you read about in our April issue. So, we got in the Panasonic DMP-BD10 Blu-ray player, which is unique in that it doesn't seem to be a clone of any other players (which you can't say for many of the BD players out there). Where should your money go (if at all)? Just keep reading.

The world's largest music label has become the first to potentially break with the world's largest online music retailer. Vivendi's Universal Music Group declined to renew its annual agreement with iTunes, selling content only "at will."

TV Half-Life

Q. I read somewhere in your magazine that cathode-ray tube TVs have a half-life of 30,000 hours. At 6 hours a day, that's around 13 years. I'm about to make the HDTV plunge. What are the half-life specs for plasma, LCD, and DLP? Jeff Dorscher Glendale, AZ

Q. My home theater employs small tower speakers with a matching center speaker below my rear projector, dipole surrounds, and a 12-inch powered subwoofer. I'm building a new family room and would like to move to a flat-panel TV with in-wall or ceiling home theater speakers.
