Make Great Father's Day Gifts
It may be a cliché, but that doesn't mean it isn't true men love their toys. And for many guys, that means the latest in electronic gear. So this Father's Day, give dad what he really wants.
From personal music systems and laptop computers to big screen televisions, technology gifts come in all sizes and can fit any budget. And if you shop around (don't forget to check online), you can be assured you're getting the best price on your purchase.
Here's a roundup of some of the hottest gifts for Dad, courtesy of Mark Dobberstein, senior electronics buyer for ShopNBC.
Mini DVD Camcorder Camcorders have come a long way from the big, cumbersome versions we all remember. The new mini DV camcorders weigh in at under a pound, and can easily fit in the palm of your hand, making it easy and convenient to preserve memories, whether it's baby's first step or that dream vacation.
Look for a powerful zoom lens to give great close-ups, an LCD monitor that reduces glare and the live slow feature that lets you capture critical moments in slow motion.
Portable Satellite Radio The satellite radio phenomenon goes portable. Satellite radio lets Dad listen to over 130 channels wherever he goes when he's working out, doing yard work or carpooling. XM2GO is designed to work as both a portable player and a plug-and-play receiver, and the memory mode lets Dad record up to five hours of his favorite programming and listen to it any time.
LCD Flat Panel Television Dad won't miss any of the action of his favorite shows or sports with the slim, high-quality LCD
TVs. As slim as only 3.75 inches deep without a stand, these TVs will fit in the tightest spaces. Dad can even mount it on the wall to save more space.
DVD Player The perfect DVD player provides a high-quality digital viewing experience, including up-conversion resolution of conventional DVD discs to improve the resolution and super audio DC for high-resolution audio in either two-channel stereo or multi-channel audio.
CD/MP3 Player This gift idea provides easy control over in-car audio, look for a model featuring a display touch-panel screen with voice support that can be personalized. Make sure it's MP3/WMA compatible and Sirius-ready, too.
So this Father's Day, forget the tie, the socks, and the golf ball washer and give Dad a gift he'll
use every day (and if you're lucky, you might get to use it, too).
