High Tech Toys for your TV has everything you need to know about what's new and how you can enhance your viewing experience. The book is very readable even for a technophobe like myself. Written is a concise, understandable way so often lacking in so called 'high tech' books. I would highly recommend this book to anyone remotely interested in TV technology.Was this review helpful?

This book was a gift that I truly appreciate. There was a time when I could keep up to date on the latest and greatest in personal electronics, but that no longer being the case, I needed this book to help me to understand what was out there for my living room. This well written book is very informative and entertaining.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
