If they were actually still in stores i would go in and give the DLPs a big hug.
I will never forget that 60'' back in the day, on the floor at the back of Fry's all neglected and on clearance for $600 *tear* I should have you brought you home old girl
But seriously, remember when people had BIG screen TVs? That's what you always wanted as a kid and they were BIG as in girthy...so it always seemed right to me for the TV to have a little "meat on the bone" ya dig?
Then i come to find they are the value King it's a no brainer (though i do wish the blacks were a bit better but what are ya gonna do....) Right now i'm kinda hoping our 65'' 09' dies on us because i have heard of people getting newer and even larger sets on warranty
I'm gonna head on over and see if Fry's still carry them, maybe play with the remote a bit, isn't it funny how they show SD content on them and turn down the picture?? While LCD in torch mode gets the HD feed.
Ok so how much do those new 80'' LCDs go for? I saw the commercial and there people going on around here about how "more affordable" they have become...........I'll bet you a 6-pack it's more than my $4000 Honda...
If it actually did cost $600 to fix one of our DLPs i would much rather go that route than drop $1200 on a tiny 55'' TV, lol what is this 2005?

partly because of DLP!
THIS! Your components already stick out! So it's funny that the guy with a CC sticking out of the wall is complaining about a TV "protruding" out? If anything it makes it all look better. Also since when is it wrong to have a screen "take up most of my vision"? If money was no object and still had to choose i would take DLP all over again, the picture is simply the most "natural" looking and "theater" like after seeing other peoples LCDs and our plasma.

Perfect! I was looking for this one! Lamps are an additional cost, right? What about the additional cost from the juice that a plasma pulls? Or all the heat it dumps into your room? Nobody is talking about that eh?
Guys good headphones have gone "by the way side" ....err actually they were never "in", so i'm just gonna go down to my local Best Buy and pick up a pair of Beats Studios because they are the finest you can get. And throw in a Bose Lifestyle system for Christmas.
And no it isn't the best, from what i've seen that is supposed to be CRT Projectors, maybe i can try to find one at my local Sears or Walmart? All 200 pounds of it.
