Upcoming CNET HDTV reviews

Editor David Katzmaier details upcoming reviews of HDTVs that will appear on CNET in the near future.

Samsung's LNB750 series is among the most-requested of new HDTV reviews. Samsung

Like most CNET editors, I get plenty of reader mail asking what products I'm reviewing next, so here's a list of HDTVs I have in-house or, according to the manufacturers, are scheduled for imminent arrival at CNET Labs East. Each list is arranged in general order of priority for review, although that order is by no means set in stone.

  • HDTVs in-house
    • Sony KDL-52XBR9
    • Toshiba 47ZV650U
    • Sony KDL-52V5100
    • Panasonic TC-L32X1
  • HDTVs arriving soon
    • Samsung LN52B750
    • Samsung LN46B650
    • Samsung PN50B650
    • JVC LT-46P300
    • Samsung UN46B8000

You'll notice a lot of Samsungs on that list. One reason is that Samsung TVs are quite popular with readers, so I tend to want to review them; another is that Samsung has been the most-responsive, despite some delays, in getting me review samples. I've also put in requests for new models from Mitsubishi (both LCD and DLP ), Sharp, and LG, but so far haven't received confirmation that any of those models are on the way.

In the meantime, if you're hankering to read my review of a particular HDTV that's currently shipping, or you think any of these sets is a waste of my time, go ahead and leave a comment . Since I can use blogs like this as leverage with manufacturers to get more review samples, comments work better than e-mail.
