Summertime! Given that this is the season when parents struggle to get their kids away from the TV and into the playground, as well as the time when sun, sand, and surf beckon, it's hard to focus on what's happening in the living room.
But a slew of new HDTV sets are turning our sights back indoors. Here are ten interesting HDTVs either recently released or waiting in the wings. Some sport cool new looks. Others boast enhanced features, either providing surround sound without surround speakers or offering new capabilities at a lower price. And many of them are going for the green, sipping electricity in ever smaller amounts.
None of these models have yet made their way to the PC World Test Center, so we can't yet verify their image- and sound-quality claims. But they do seem promising, and we're looking forward to getting our hands on them.
