    I was mesmerized by a 55" Samsung at Costco yesterday. I can still hear it calling me.

    60 inches?? That's a height, not a size for a TV.

    Who has time for TV? You should either be outside or on a message board.

    Uh, no offense & all, but when a stranger from a rival school invites you over to "show" you a box that measures your exact height, he's planning to bury you in said box.

    So, um, I'm washing my hurr that night

    I would've hoped after all we've been through together, you'd stay far away from a low blow like that.

    Let me know when you're coming so I can put out the house divided flag.

    I paid 1500 for my Samsung 55 in led smart TV about a year ago. I don't think Mitsubishi makes great TVs but at least a great deal for the size.

    That is cheap. Mine cost me $2300.

    That TV goes on sale a lot through Dell.com. My brother-in-law got one for $799 on special. It's got a great picture. The last time it went that low was November I think.

    IMO that proves it can't be a great TV if you can get a 73 in for 800 dollars...

    Big doesn't necessarily mean good picture.

    DLP? As in projection TV? Why not just get a Curtis Mathes console TV?

    Doesn't prove anything, it's regularly $1300-$1500. Reviews all over the internet give it great reviews. It's just not for everyone because it's isn't 2" thin. It is still super thin compared to other rear projection HDTV's and the picture is better than a typical rear projection Tv.

    It was 1200$ something. They were playing SWIV blue ray. It really made it look almost cheesey. You could see the stitching on the seats of the Falcon. Great picture.

    There's nothing like watching the Falcon do the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs in full HD. It's breathtaking.

    You guys do realize that HD can't and doesn't add any additional or new definition that wasn't in the original film print, right?

  43. #43
    They can do HD conversions to previously made movies/TV shows that weren't filmed in HD, but they don't always come out perfect. For example, I've got a copy of Stargate in Blu Ray that wasn't very well done.

    HD conversion means that the it was shot on film but at the time standard def TV technology limited how it could be presented to the home audience. Now that Blu-ray and 1080P has come along they re-release with less compression and more definition than it would have had 15 years ago, hence HD conversion. But film still has more definition than what Blu-ray and our TVs can accomodate. Even if technology for home viewing could display much higher definition, it will still look no better than the original film print.

    Yes but the blue ray movie they were showing certainly gave it a different look. Everything was sharp and stood out - especially the people.

    Could've been the soap opera effect if it was a TV with a high refresh rate. That's why I still like plasma displays.

    Socali never buys a TV taller than he is. He has a 36 in.
