    i've been thinking about it for a while... i miss watching movies before i fall asleep like i used to do. now, my home theatre is downstaris, so its not in my room any more.

    so, i just wooted and picked up a cheapo dvd theathre in a box that will get me started, and now all i need is a tv.

    i'm thinking mid 20's in size..... i don't need anything huge, but i need to be able to see it.

    i like this a lot:

    but its a little more than i want to spend. Ok, a LOT more than i want to spend. I was thinking like 600 ish....

    I bought a 26" Westinghouse LCD at bestbuy for $550 Its a really nice tv and looked better than all of the other tvs they had in the section except for the Samsung which was double the price. I got 200 off of the tv because the box had a hole in the back of it, the tv was about 3 inches from the hole and they tested it out for me before I bought it.

    I'm looking to wall mount it, so it needs to be a flat lcd or plasma. and i've never seen a mid 20's plasma before, so LCD it is.

    600 is cheap. the good ones are 2k for 26-28" lcd's. I'm kinda partial to samsung though... I'd like to stick with them i think.

    If you are talking about wallhanging, You could buy a regular TV up to 29" and they make wall mounts for them. But you are talking about a surroudn sound, etc etc... you probably want something more "bling".

    I had a 27" hanging on the wall for over a year without a problem... I think the one I have in there now is a 23"
