By The HT Guys • Sep 26 2008, 6:47am

Dennis from Medina OH sent us a link to an article that ran down a list of Black Friday Predictions at BlackFriday @ GottaDeal.com. We want to do the same thing.

Our predictions will stay in the realm of HDTV and Home Theater.

We also recently received an email asking us for a good solution to archive old family videos that are locked away on VHS tapes. Many options require you to use the hard drive of your computer for the recording process. Today we take a look at a devices that easily connects to your analog sources and records to multiple destinations. The Neuros OSD lets you convert your treasured videos to digital so they can be enjoyed for years to come.

Because as we all know, some things in life are optional, Starbucks, Swedish massages, expensive creams and lotions ... but HDTV is not.
