Look on the secondary market for used Connect and Connect Amps. I think they went by the ZP90 and ZP100 in their past life. If they are in good condition, you should be able to get a deal. I found...

If you're building, just be careful with what the builder might charge for some of the items you need. When I built about 10 years ago, my builder wanted $700 for each Cat5 and Coax jack. If you...

Good call on the Lapis. Went with that color for some of my panels as well and absolutely love it. One of my favorite blues.

Is there anyway to automatically switch Picture Modes when going from 2D to 3D? It seems like when using any of the USER customizable settings, I have to manually switch the Pic mode.
