Dude I belong to that forum too. Well the forum on how to convince the fiancee' that you could never have too many hdtvs in one small NJ apartment..
Seriously man.. I work in Chelsea (isnt is coldest day in the world today???) and live about 10 miles away in Paterson. Its me and my sign. other living in small 1 bedroom Jersey apt probably about 900 sq ft.
I actually have two of the Vizio 50" 720p plasmas, one in the bedroom one in the living room. And she loves BOTH of them. Her old tv was a one of the Chinese imitation 36" WEGA flat screens. While the picture is great that TV is about the size of a full size oven, no lie. And weighs about 120lbs.
The plasmas are both less than 4" thick, weigh about 80lbs, can be wall mounted, make the apartment look more modernized and most importantly creates more space for her to put more of her shyt.
Oh and I forgot to add the picture quality is incredible. Because thats the part WE care about.
But if you are seriously looking for advice, spin those female attributes off to her. About how much space you will gain with a plasma or LCD, how much more modern and contemp the apt will look, and of course how it would only be 'this much more' when you consider the difference after selling your old TV on craigslist.
Not to mention SHOW her the tv.. once you take her in Costco you will be in control. She will see so many things she wants to buy for herself and the home, she will forget you want to drop $1700 on a new tv..
