Exclamation Just got a Sony 50" Bravia LCD HDTV,

This thing is nice! It's rear-projection LCD, so the price is fantastic just as the picture. Full 1080p too. I'm sitting here using the PC on it, played Unreal Tournament 3 at 1920x1080@60hz at 70+fps

Then watched some HD videos too. MERRY CHRISTMAS

I have had an HD-DVD player and a Blurray player, but I eventually sold both until we have a final winner and the prices go down on the players AND on the disks, as they're sometimes $30+ which is stupid.

what ouch about rear projection? maybe he could buy a plasma and have to worry about the having to continuously turn up the brightness until there is no gas left, or maybe you prefer lcd televisions at which point watching anything under 720p looks like a terd that just popped out of my ass. Or maybe you like paying the exact same amount for something half the size that maxes out at 720p and you can "hang" on the wall and think you are straight out of a modern living magazine. Either way it sounds like an uneducated response to a gorgeous purchase.

Ouch, superior image quality.

Sony's $32,999 70" LCD looks inferior to my 70" SXRD that I paid $5,000 for. 6.5x the price for an inferior picture....just so I can hang it over the fireplace? No thanks.

Wow, are you arried to a rear projection TV, or what? Calm the **** down. For personally, LCD is the way to go up to 42" inches, 42" and above will look best with plasma IMO. Rear projection means DLP (spinning wheels, fans, a LAMP ffs) and whatnot (or LCD, but not in this case). Uneducated answer?

Funny, I don't have any spinning wheels. Lamps are a BLESSING. $200, TV is like new again. Plasma's are a joke if you are any sort of video/film enthusiast. Blacks SUCK, color is never correct, they are good for watching TV outside at high noon and nothing more. Rear projection can mean CRT, DLP, LCoS, or LCD. Have you ever seen a plasma undergo any sort of calibration? They can't be calibrated to be accurate.
