you could see the difference if you were 2-3' away, but that's just plain stupid on a display that size
Yea but I never understood why someone would want an HDTV that small.

Yea but I never understood why someone would want an HDTV in their bedroom, home office or dining room/kitchen.


We only watch the tv in the living room but I guess it would be kind of nice to have one in the bedroom. The other rooms? No thanks.

I use a Optoma HD72 ceiling mounted projector. It's 1280x768 (does 1280x720) for HDTV and DVDs that are upscaled. (either via my PC or DVD player)

It is one of the best projectors, at it's price, for HD 720 content. Deep and dark blacks, vibrant color, sharp and crisp even at the 100" projection I do.

I use it daily as my PC monitor too; it's bright enough. It uses an active iris to control brightness, hence why it has such good blacks when needed.

Playing the latest games at 100" and in THX Ultra sound is just an all encompassing blast I must say.

Cool Re: Post your HDTV displays here

Hi everybody!
I have a Asusu MoBo with a GeForce 6150 connected trought component out/in with a Philips HDTV Monitor 29" model 29PT6456 (CRT) and a Dynacon 5.1 Home Theater Sound System.
I think it is not the best HDTV (1080i) out there but makes me happy watching DVDs and playing games!

I do all that with my Mandriva Linux 2007 PowerPack!!!

Not long now to wait for the Vista drivers. Once available I'll be able to use the system as a media hub to distribute TV and movies to the other TVs in the house.

The Logitech DiNovo Edge keyboard is drop-dead sexy (props to J-Mag for pointing it out to me). Just holding it in your hands gives you a woody and compels you to surf porn. It's almost a piece of art.
How do you like that set? Im contemplating between the sxrd and this one.
