    Welp, I decided i wanted a tv in my bed room so i could stop passing out on the couch all the time. So, i went out and bought one :)

    got a 32" LG LCD. The samsung I wanted wasn't in stock, so this was the next best option for the money. Just 720p... i already have the 1080p downstairs, so i didn't see the need to spend the extra money on it. Movie time will still be down stairs for the most part. it was on sale for $999 and it even fit int he trunk of the bimmer :p

    I propped it up on my dresser for now.... but its too high and at a bad angle. I'd like to wall mount it, but its too much work, as my cable jack is on the adjacent wall. so, i'll probably pick up a small stand that's not as high. a foot lower than it is now would be ideal i think.

    anyway, here's the pic. Armageddon was on :p

    for a game system 42" or bust!
    32" TV isnt bad for a bedstand tv or even a monitor. but for your gaming tv. blah!

    yeah, its perfect for a bedroom or office or something as a secondary, but i would never use something this size for a main display, be it tv, movies, or gaming.

    My 20" suits me just fine.

    Maybe I'll pick up a big screen for the house once I pay some shit off...


    edit: Looks like a sweet buy. :thumbsup:

    20" is fine if you have a gamecube, PS2 or xbox, but once you step up to a HD system. I can't say I'd ever want to wish a 20" tv on anyone. not even you =(
    If you have samsclubs up that way you could get a pretty cheap viszo (sp) tv, my brothers picked up a 32" HD one for my parents, even with the bad no name brand it still got really good reviews. I think it was around 500 bucks.

    If you don't have a PS3, Xbox360 or blueray/hddvd player then the 20" is fine. just sit close enough.

    shes only here a couple days out of the week, and all last week when my boss was out, she obviously wasn't at my place when i wasn't there. i think shes been here for a total of 6 or 7 days now. The majority of the work has been painting.
    there's one coat left on the bottom stairs, and then painting is done. Then, there's a few misc things to get together and we're done
