    Samsung is a quality TV when it comes to their HD stuff. Good choice.

    Agreed. I just sold someone on getting it and it's great for HD. You can get good deals here for Samsung flat screens. Imagine watching hockey on it.....the best thing and I couldn't imagine watching it any other way.

    Damn, wish I had friends like yours. Don't get me wrong, the bottle of Jack Daniels was nice and all, but if they would have bought me a flat screen, I would have gladly provided the Jack.

    Yeah, no shit. On my last birthday, I took my Mets bear, named Bear, to the bar. There, we shared a couple beers with two friends. And at the end of the night, I didn't get a television. At least I had my bear.

    Now that plasma prices are finally dropping, what's everyone's take on those.

    In store, they seem exponentially more clear than HD flat-screen projection.

    Ouch. That was a swift kick in the gonads.

    Don't use the pictures you see in a store to judge anything.

    The settings on most TVs in a store are set waaaaayyyy to high. Videophiles call it "Torch Mode", and the stores do it so the pictures stand out in a large, well-lighted showroom. If you actually used the settings that the store uses for your own TV, it would burn out in about three years.

    When you have a TV professionally calibrated at home --- something I highly recommend --- at first you will be disappointed. "Gee, it doesn't look as bright as it should," will be the first thing that pops into your mind. But after the eyes adjust --- takes 2-3 days --- "Torch Mode" will look positively ghastly.
