    and how do you rate them, 1-10? Personally, I have a 42 inch Sanyo Plasma HD that i bought in Jan. 07, paid $1050 for, and absolutely love it. I currently have Time Warner Cable and their HD lineup really sucks. I am a sales trainer for a multi satellite provider and am really undecided as to what service provider i want. Dish has the most HD right now, but DTV is talking big s*#t about 70 plus channels in a few months. What is your experience?

    I have an Optoma HD7100 front projector with a 98" screen. :D As for what to do in your situation, the first rule is don't count on promises of future services. The second rule is (as Herman would say) "same as the first." Go with what ever service has the most of what you want when you are signing up for the service.

    Samsung direct view CRT since 2004. Only this year would I say the new models of HD TV are giving better pictures.

    Westinghouse LTV-37w2

    I would give it a 6 out of 10. Picture not too bad, but have found some quirky issues that, would I have known about them earlier, would have encouraged me to spend a few extra dollars to get a different set.
    Still great HD pic, though, via D* and OTA.

    Panasonic AX100 with 106" image - Love it! Incredible picture.
    37" Vizio LCD - Our bedroom TV, also great
    32" (4:3) Sony XBR, 7 years old. Definitely a quality TV with a sharp picture, but by today's standards I'm itching to replace it. It's what we use for most of the SD stuff we still watch, but the 16:9 HD window only equates to about a 29" screen, not nearly big enough for the room. I'm going to put the 37" Vizio in its place since it just fits in its spot in the entertainment center (a nice piece of furniture) after we get around to buying something bigger for the bedroom.
    26" Samsung LCD - mounted over the bar. Looks great, ideal for its location.
    32" Vizio LCD - just bought last week for our exercise room, haven't gotten around to mounting it yet.

    I'm really happy with DirecTV. There's really no other choice for me since I want NFL Sunday Ticket. It just depends on your viewing habits - is it just more channels you want? Are you going to watch stuff on the additional channels?

    I have a 3 year old Toshiba 51H93. I bought it at Frys Electrons on a 2 day special for $1200.

    Here's a link to the specs.

    The picture still looks great. 7 or 8 out of 10? :D

    Sony KLD 40V2500 1080P LCD. I'll give it a 9/10, best picture I've seen but I'm glad I have my Kenwood and Bose for sound.

    Family room TV in my sig. great set, but wish it had dual HDMI inputs. Bedroom TV is 26 inch Ilo HDTV monitor. A bit too small for my liking, but bought it before I moved here. Den TV is a Sony 32 inch CRT HDTV monitor around 5 years old. Still a great set, but heavy as can be (150 pounds).

    In the family room, I have a Mitsubishi 57732 1080P DLP. Great pic... Bested only by plasmas. (I have a Toshiba A20 HD-DVD attached, too.)

    In the master, I have a Westinghouse LTV-32w6 (720 LCD). It's currently attached to a 625 until I buy a 211 off E-bay.

    Panny 42" Plasma - $1,299 on sale at Circuit City in December. Very good picture and sound. Sometimes watching SD programming can be a little iffy, but not sure if its the TV or the provider.

    I have the Panasonic TH-37PX50U , I love my TV. I give it a 9 out of 10. I use Direct TV because a certain cable provider customer service isn't worth a #@%*!. :mad: I keep reading post about DTV hd lite but everytime people come over they talk about how good the picture looks in HD.

    Mitsu 52631. Awesome HD picture. Works great after getting the thermistor issue fixed. The SD picture is average, but who watches SD anymore....
