    I have to agree with this. While those HDTVs are beautiful and I drool over them, there are more important things we need right now. It's scary to think that my first several cars cost less than these TVs, though.

    We went with the LCD because our old TV died, and since it was a big-assed console, nothing would fit in its space, and we didn't have room for a new stand etc. In our new place now, the TV looks great on the wall. Not that I've had any time to watch it since we moved in.

    I have a 20" Magnavox that was 150 bucks from Target..it's not a plasma but the screen is flat..I don't waste my money on Electronics..only on skiing, booze, and food. My parents have three large flat screens at their new house but they're ballers..I think they were each more than $1,000..

    I have to say that after spending the afternoon at my parents' house (with their Big Screen HDTV, not sure what kind just that it's a Toshiba, on all day) that I'm getting pulled into the dark side. HD nature programs are awesome! Of course, that would require a new tv and extended cable... no $$$ for that. But it's nice to dream....

    well, I couldn't hold out any longer. Got a sweet deal on a 42" Panasonic Plasma on Friday, so I bit. What a difference

    I thought so. Price was $1150. I was suprised they didn't try and talk me into a more expensive option. All I said was I was looking for something in the 37-42" range that was great for sports and non-HD channels as I still watch quite a few of them. There were TV's of that size nearly twice the price, but comparing them all side by side, none really struck me as being much better if at all than the Panasonic, so I went with it.

    Normal 20" Mitsubishi TV that's about 15 years old. No cable - "rabbit ears" and because we live in the Boston suburbs we get 10 channel options. TV not a big priority

    Bump. Funny how 1080p is now becoming "old" technology.

    I'm thinking of buying a 4k TV. Prices have seemed to drop into the affordable range, but I'd like to hear what people think of their own 4k TV's before I pull the trigger. These curved TV's seem to be all the rage as well now, how do those of you who have one like them so far?
