Large-screen televisions attract shoppers at the Ken Cranes Home
Entertainment store in Long Beach, Calif., as they display coverage
of President Bush's inauguration earlier this month. As the Super
Bowl approaches, thousands of Americans will decide it's time to
buy a big-screen TV. Sales of plasma and LCD models, along with the
somewhat bulkier digital rear-projection TVs, will jump 25 percent
this year to 8.4 million from 6.8 million in 2004, according to the
Consumer Electronics Assn.
