Then there's the Sony 32" my Wii and PS2 are connected to...
How is that PJ? I've seen the reviews for it and it sounds like it is another great leap over the 900U. What screen, throw distance, sitting distance do you have? How is the brightness? I know they released the ae-100U to replace the 900U and added brightness, but for some reason the 1000U they dimmed back down again.

Btw, your CPU is quite slow. I didn't know you could underclock it that much.
well the service port sold me on it. i would hate to have to send it back because of a firmware update...

Dell 24" here, not really a HDTV but still 1080p (cheapest 1080p option by far).

I Run HD-DVDs on PowerDVD Ultra versus the X360, because the 360 can only output DD and DTS, whereas with PowerDVD I get all the lossless audio formats output properly through analog output through X-Fi, including Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, PCM. Also the 360 doesn't scale properly on my A02 revision so I don't get the correct AR it's slightly stretched. Also on the PC I can use Digital Vibrance which I always like .

A poor man's HT setup A larger screen would be nice, but I'm pretty close to it as I conveniently have a couch behind my computer chair

Damn Matrix Trilogy sounds awesome in TrueHD

Vizio's 42-inch 1080 LCD was going for $999 at Costco (with a $200 rebate). We compared and studied the images of comparable Sony and Sharp models, which may have been higher quality, but I was not disappointed with the Vizio model once I set it up at home.

I was skeptical at the store though as the display model was facing the main entrance and receiving more light than the other models. The display model was also one aisle over, where the Sony and Sharp were next to one another.

In the past I may have purchased the Sony, but this time I ended up saving a lot of money and received an affordable and quality 1080 LCD TV.

Vizio seems to have a good product on its hands and must be taking some of the business away from the big guys.

Pictures were taken with a Canon PowerShot G3.

Nice. I almost bought that LCD 2 months ago. At the time it was a little more expensive but it sure was tempting. I ended up going with a 37" Sharp 720p. At my viewing distance it just seemed to be the better choice and it had the a lower response time compared to the Vizio. Anyways, congrats.

@ MikeC - Woot! I bought this TV as well...I searched for about 3 months before I stumbled on this one and am glad I did due to the money savings...Blu-Ray, PS3, Wii, HDTV...Everything looks awesome. I made a post about the TV right around when they came out/went on sale with coupon...Congrats on a great TV (so far! )

**EDIT** Your PC pics are great...I bought an DVI->HDMI cable, but havn't tried it yet...What are you using for a connection? I ask because some people over at AVS Forum were reporting blurry text using DVI->HDMI @ 1920x1280. If your running at 1080, I'll link your post over on the Vizio VU thread over there...Some people posted pictures of being successful, but thier pics didn't turn out nearly as well as yours...

I got the Westinghouse 37' LVM-37w3se from costco for 799.99 plus shipping and tx came to $907. They did not have them avail in stores. The 42 inch is nice but I do not see that rebate and now it is 1199.99. I love the 37 inch but the specs on that Vizio look good too.

The Vizio is1800:1, I have 1200:1 @ 1920x1080P

it takes some getting used to over a 19" LCd and my gamming has suffered a little in COD2 lol but hey I will take it over a 19" anyday...

I've seen these at Costco along side philips, panasonic, samsung, sharp and some other odd brand. There is no doubt that the Sharp has the best picture quality, then samsung after those two there's a noticable drop in overall PQ. Also I believe Sharp has several 1080p models with PC support upto 1920x1080, their gaming models come with a DVI-I instead of the usual VGA. Just my opinion though

Thanks. Yes, viewing distance is a key consideration when buying these big screen TV's. In my case, 42" is about the right size for the viewing distance we have.

Here is a handy chart that I found at the Crutchfield advisor web site:

30" - 3.75 to 6.25 feet
34" - 4.25 to 7 feet
42" - 5.25 to 8.75 feet
50" - 6.25 to 10.5 feet
56" - 7 to 11.75 feet
62" - 7.75 to 13 feet
70" - 8.75 to 14.75 feet
