HDTVs/Home theater at CES 2010: What are you most looking forward to?

The annual tech lovefest better known as CES is kicking off in a couple of days, and you can probably already guess that the 2010 edition will be known as the 3D CES. The runaway success of Avatar is just the latest sign that 3D is going mainstream, and electronics companies will be falling all over themselves announcing products that will offer that third-dimension experience in your living room.

The annual tech lovefest better known as CES is kicking off in a couple of days, and you can probably already guess that the 2010 edition will be known as the 3D CES. The runaway success of Avatar is just the latest sign that 3D is going mainstream, and electronics companies will be falling all over themselves announcing products that will offer that third-dimension experience in your living room.

But 3D HDTVs aren't the only thing of interest to home theater fans awaiting word from Vegas on new products. Will there be any other advancements in displays, like a new OLED announcement in a bigger size (the US market still only has a 11-inch, $2,500 Sony set available) or LED-backlit LCD sets that will start life costing less than $1,000 instead of being discounted at that price come the holiday season? How many more "connected" devices will be introduced that promise Internet access for streaming services and widgets? And will any promise to send HD wirelessly to your TV at a price point less than what a 40-inch set costs?

Like most of you, I won't be in Vegas this time out, but I'll be posting news as it reaches the wires. Turn to our ZDNet team who will be covering the show for on-the-floor impressions. In the meantime, let everyone know what you're most excited about when it comes to CES HDTV and home theater news by voting in the below poll and posting in our TalkBack section.
