My old roomates have a new HDTV (and reciever) 65" TV (not a plasma) and i really dont care for how it looks. I mean it is a little more clear (sharper) but not something id blow my money on. A 36" TV is big enough for me!

Not unless I had more money than I knew what to do with. They look AWESOME...but such a luxury seems ridiculous to me. Invest that money and make it grow.

I was skeptical about the hdtv/digital stuff for a while, but I am singing a new tune of late becuase it is that much better, go to the Ultimate Electronics in Addison, they have some demo dvd's of basketball and football games in hdtv, it is unbelievable, I totally think it is badass and within 5 years or so regular/analog tv's will be obsolete

An HD TV showing regular programming won't look any better than a good non HD TV. My TV has a badass, almost fake looking picture when using the HD tuner. The progressive scan DVD's are nice too but there is a big difference between them and true HD programming.

A Plasma tv has two major advantages over projection. The picture is consistent from any direction and they are alot thinner. They also have shortcomings though. Most are only 720 lines of resolution whereas most HDtvs are 1080 (compared to 525 for a regular TV). They rarely have any kind of built in tuner or any on board speakers.

To answer your question though hell yeah I'd buy one if I had the cash laying around without stupid bills to pay.

I went by ultimate electronics the other day. Kind of disappointed, all they had in there (Southlake location) was pretty much TVs. But, I saw these two plasma HDTVs, one was 14,999 and the other 12,999. The guy said they haven't even sold one. Somewhat suprising since it's in Southlake...lol Where do people get the money, and lack of sense to buy that crap?

Damn, do you work for Sony or something? LOL! You got those numbers right on! If your not already, have you considered a career in sales, TV's maybe???
I agree with Brandy though, I'd buy one too if the price dropped down, and they will soon. But for now, my HDTV is pretty darn good too. I probably spend more time watching TV than driving my car, so yes, I like a really good picture and sound quality.

I think we would all like to have those kinds of toys LOL.....

Some people I know have the home theater thing going on with a room set aside with the black walls, big TV, surround sound and seating. That kind of stuff is awesome to have.

We are still using the TV & VCR that we got right after we got married 15 years ago :)

So the answer for me and I think a lot of other people is probably "not until the technology becomes affordable".

Hell yea, if I had the money. I saw one at Best Buy and it was badass. Its not like normal big screens. like when you get closer to it, the pic sucks. Its stays clear.

But I don't have that kind of money. I am thinking about getting a 52in wide screen to fit in my bedroom. I like watching movies at home, I have already spend over a grand in the home theater system, not including a T.V, and I didn't even get the BOSE. Now If I had the money I would own a badass BOSE system with the plasma T.V :D

Heh.

My uncle just dropped $30k+ on a 62 (maybe 64") Plasma screen.

FOR HIS RANCH HOUSE.

And here I am having trouble making the phone bill...jeeez.....

They're nice, but I can think of a thousand things to buy before that.
