For most people, Hawaii is an earthly paradise, filled with awe-striking natural beauty and blessed with a near-perfect climate. Even noted cynic Mark Twain wrote that in Hawaii, "the good that die experience no change, for they but fall asleep in one heaven and wake up in another."

Right now is a great time to buy an HDTV. Why? Because prices have dropped to where many people can actually afford one.
