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...

Wow, this forum is extremely atypical. I figured it might be skewed a bit towards physical media, but man, that's crazy! I use iTunes for a massive collection of music I've collected from various...

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,...

Mine was (it's in storage at the moment) well documented, I had an Excel-based schematic of the whole thing so that it was easy to use, and it actually made it easier for me that last time I built it...

It seems I'm a bit more picky than most people on here, but I just don't want to use anything other than the OEM remotes, as they are designed specifically for each component. I could see the...

Between sports, the convenience of TiVo, and the relative cost-effectiveness of a bundle compared to just internet on Comcast, I'm not cutting any cord anytime soon. My viewing has shifted more and...

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...

Holy crap! I didn't realize it was so huge. No wonder it took so long to download! It seemed like forever. I only have about 40mbps to my basement, so downloads are a little slow down there, although...

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.

True. Some areas haven't gotten the 25-50 upgrade yet, although they still have Blast! at 105, so it doesn't really make a difference.

75, 150, and 250 will probably the same as 50, 105, and 150 are today, respectively.

Whether 2gig will be the same price and under the same terms as Extreme 505 is today remains to be seen,...

Unless you have very deep pockets, you probably won't want it either. My guess is that it replaces the existing 505mbps service, which, IIRC, is around $300/mo on a 3-year contract. It will also...
