Cutting Edge Electronics Make Great Father's Day Gifts

(ARA)-It may be a cliche, 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 to 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 the Web), 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 JVC GR-D295 mini DV camcorder, for example, weighs 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.
A powerful zoom lens give great close-ups, the LCD monitor reduces glare and the live slow feature lets you capture critical moments in slow motion.
* Portable XM Satellite Radio- The satellite radio phenomenon goes portable. The MyFi XM2GO 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 Proton 32-inch LCD TV. At only 3.75 inches deep without stand, the TV will fit in the tightest spaces. Dad can even mount it on the wall to save more space.
* DVD Player- The Samsung 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.
* In-Dash CD/MP3 Player- The JVC KD-LHX550 provides easy control over in-car audio, featuring a display touch-panel screen with voice support that can be personalized using JVC's innovative PICT feature. 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). Visit for electronics and other great Father's Day gifts.
