New York - Consumer shopping site Retrevo recently launched its HDTV
offering a free service/cheat sheet designed to help shoppers compare product families across a brand to make better purchasing decisions.
The Model Decoder was set up to help consumers "quickly understand what the differences are between a brand's series variations (like the Sony BX, EX, NX and HX series for example)," Retrevo said. "This service also gives shoppers a guide to stores that carry â€˜
' like Costco, Sam's Club and Best Buy, the company said.
The site also helps consumers unlock the meaning behind manufacturers' model number designations. Consumer electronics model numbers are more than a group of letters and numbers.
"When Retrevo's artificial intelligence technology is applied to model numbers, valuable shopping information emerges like the Life Cycle Chart, comparative product analysis and most recently the HDTV Model Decoder. The Model Decoder will help you understand the differences in HDTV models from major TV manufactures such as Sony, Samsung, LG, Panasonic and Vizio," Retrevo said.
