I'm well aware of the Plasma story. Not a very exciting one, but a story nonetheless.

60" Sharp. It's pretty darn good. My parents' Sony is probably marginally better, although it's CCFL, so it doesn't have plasma-level blacks like my LED LCD.



I'm not sure what this plasma is,...

400 watts is pretty insane. Also, you have some absurdly cheap (and dirty) power if you're really paying only 7 cents per kwh, delivered, which I don't believe. That sounds like only the generation...

I don't need to repeat anything. What I said was right from the get-go. The plasma lovers will fight, they just don't realize they lost their fight years ago.

A lot of them were sucking 500W+. That's complete insanity for a TV!



No one cares. Any decent LED-LCD looks just as good as a plasma.

If any LCD is using anywhere close to what a plasma is, it's got to be a total POS. Or there's something wrong with it.



It's actually pretty significant. You need more A/C in the summer, and...

Good riddance. Plasma needed to die years before it did, if only because it's such a massive power hog. Plasma used to have the black level advantage over CCFL-LCD, even though the power consumption...

I prefer paying the extra money for the name brand. I.e. Monoprice. I know they're great, and they're still pretty darn cheap. I actually really like their Redmere cables, they are like $15 a cable,...

Most users, even fairly advanced users don't need more than about 50/20 today. Even a big family of heavy bandwidth users would probably be fine with 100/20. I'd get gig for $70 just for the heck of...

Well the equipment is going to be different on a non-HFC provider. That's just how it goes. Of course the 2gbps service is going to be expensive. You should be surprised it's only $299 considering...

I zoomed through Season 1 and the first couple of Season 2, and then it seemed to slow down a bit. I hope that Season 3 is more like Season 1. Can't wait for Season 3. OTOH, why bother reviewing the...

Depends on what you're doing. Most households are probably fine with 50mbps. If you're downloading huge games or video files the extra speed is nice.
