Often, EDTV plasma televisions will appear better than HDTV plasma televisions when displaying DVDs. This is because DVD technology currently produces a picture that is closer to EDTV resolution than HDTV resolution. Widescreen DVDs only display at a resolution of 704x480, which is similar to the EDTV resolution of 852x480. This, however, is not a reason to avoid buying an HDTV. DVD technology is changing all the time, and within a few years the resolution of DVD recordings will most likely increase to meet the demands of HDTV users.
