well, as you all know, my dell plasma was a piece of shit and kept breaking, so i returned it. moving back to a 20" fucking sucks. i need another new tv. lol once the del sol is sold, i'll be purchasing another HDTV of some sort. i think i want to go with sony, as that is what my dvd player is, and i can be sure the hdmi channel on both is compatible. supposedly, that is why my dell fried twice-- the hdmi signal from my dvd player coulndn't be read properly by the dell tv. i would hope that sony would work with a sony. i was just browsing online... http://stores.ebay.com/Gear-4-Less this guy has a bunch of stuff for great prices. i've bought from him before.... i got my inifinity 5.1 speaker system from him for a damn good deal-- nearly half of what crutchfield sells them for. i'm pretty sure hes a drop-shipper... but, i have my doubts about shipping a tv through fed-ex, etc through ebay... at least with dell, i had an 800 number to call, and it was deleivered by a professional shipping company that deals with larger items and home installs... so, what do you all think? i had the 42" plasma. it looked awesome on hdmi 1028i. loved the picture. i don't think i would be happy with an lcd... too dark? dlp? space is def an issue.. my room isn't that big. the 42" 16x9 was perfect for my area... i think 55 would be as big as i would ever want to go, and even then, im going to have to do some moving around of my system.... as it will fill my whole table. i'm looking to spend about the same... ~$3000 thoughts? suggestions?
