so today my wife and i decided to go pick up a 27" hd lcd tv. found a nice one for a good price. With all this talk about next gen consoles and 720p/1080i/1080p i was wondering...if the next gen consoles were to be released today how many of us could take advantage of the hd rendering?


p.s. oops maybe this should be in the console sub-forum...mods?

There already was a thread like this if you just go a few pages back. :/

I don't watch enough television to warrant an expensive set. I occasionally watch DVDs and high definition WMV files on my 24" WS LCD, but that's it. And it will probably be it for a while.

I don't even have cable. There are only a few stations that I desire: discovery, a&e, history channel, and sci-fi. I miss those a bit. The rest I could do without.

I picked up a Samsung 50" DLP HD set a few months back but I agree with Riptide. I watch more movies on my 2405FPW then I do on the Samsung. I do have cable tv but I think it's a rip off. All I watch is the History Channel, Discovery and NY1 (Local News Channel in NYC). Everything else is crap!

I've seen 27", not sure if they get smaller than that or not.

Probably 15" since you can just use a regular computer LCD if you wish. Will have to support DVI though.

I think he means stand-alone sets though. Has anyone seen one smaller than 27" that does 720p or better?

Nice, but holy crap that's one hell of a price for a 17" display. :eek:

Good find, and the price is a bit more reasonable.

Downstairs we have an old console TV that is older than I am. I think my parents got it in 1980. It's one of those huge behemoths that look like a piece of furniture, I'm sure you know the type. Well, whenever it finally calls it quits my dad is going to treat himself to a nice, shiny, brand new HDTV. The problem is the thing simply won't die. It has been on its way out many a time only to come back strong and work perfectly for another few years. So perhaps it might have an unfortunate "accident" in the near future.

That's a nice set. Probably the best 4:3 set ever made.
