Many libraries have one or more large-screen television sets for staff orientation or group viewing by patrons. Since the prices of 31-and 35-inch units continue to be quite high, the 27-inch set is the most popular choice. At least 15 manufacturers compete in the 27-inch market, a competition that has brought list prices down to the $600-$1,200, with substantial retailer discounts available for institutions. Video, one of the most respected publications for video professionals and advanced video amateurs, has just rated 13 of the manufacturers' 27-inch offerings. The seven page article is entitled “27-inch Superbowl” and appears in the November issue (pp. 60-66 and 149). Single copies of the issue are available for $2.95 plus mailing.
