    Jesus...

    Bdgtee -

    Good point! I got a 50' big screen in November. Haven't left the couch yet. With HD programming, it is very addicting. If you have one you can't imagine going back.

    • I was under the impression that big screen was already mainstream. My old CRT projection set is already about 14 years old and past due for replacement. But I can't wait for LCD flat panel. As I said before, if I could get a quality, 60" or more flat panel LCD now for 6 or 7K, I would buy. But that wont happen for at least a couple years. Let me guess. You either went with the heavy, boxy CRT projection, one of the micro displays (LCD projection, DLP projection, or even LCOS projection). Because I'm sure you didn't get LCD flat panel. The largest mass produced LCD flat panel currently available is a 46" from Samsung with a $9999 price tag, although it can be had for about $8000. Quality is not yet good enough, size is not yet big enough and price not yet good enough. But to those of you that think you will ever be able to buy a quality LCD flat panel, over 55", for less than 4K or 5K will be waiting forever or until LCD flat panel is near obsolescense. There is a point where efficiencies mature and they are already nearly there with small panels such as those for computer monitors. Some of you people are dreaming. Wake up.

    • I think you mean 50" not 50'...
      Nonetheless, is that an LCD TV???
      If it is, you paid a bundle!
