Spoken like a guy. :)


That is awfully sexist, Ms. Diana, especially for a self-proclaimed sports fan.

I can't tell you what my wife just said about an 84" TV. Wasn't pretty.

Personally, even if we could buy a 84" TV for the price of a 60" plasma today, I can't think of a place where having such a huge display would be acceptable. I sure wouldn't want it in my living room. It's one thing to see these displays on a convention floor, but in your house they will literally dominate a room.


A tv is never too big....its your room thats too small.

Me??? A sports fan? I'm only a Yankees fan...I don't watch football or basketball if I can help it.

It may be sexist, but that doesn't mean it isn't true. :)

Hopefully, you only want a 60", and used the scare of an 84" as a ploy! "))

Always best to pick your battles. Of course some wives would question the sanity of 12 DVRs.

I've got a 60" and a 58". Didn't want an 84" set, just was curious after reading Diana C's post as to what my wife would say about it.

She loves MRV, doesn't care about the number of DVRs, understands my ongoing lack of faith in the HRs (altho that's changing) and tells anyone that will listen to her how wonderful it is to be able to watch shows from any TV in the house.

But, I gotta admit, she does question my sanity at times. When I fully explained why I asked her about the 84" set, she quickly calmed down.

Until something changes my mind, I'll stick with CC's opinion of larger than 60" sets.

I don't know what you're seeing but Fox looks MUCH better to me!



Frankly it is quite noticable and CNN looks quite a bit better.

My goodness, the wife should admire your restraint, they make 90 inch TV sets, I'd think an 84 would be a nice compromise.

Shoot, I've told my wife for quite some time now that my next purchase for my home thater TV will be a front projector with a 120" or so screen.

She did seem to think my 57" TV in the bedroom at my old apartment was a bit much though, she's ok with the 42" plasma in our bedroom now. The 57" is now in the living room at our house, and the 65" is in the theater room.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

Let me put it this way: If I really wanted a monster like that, I'd just go buy it. After I explained everything she calmed down.

Wonder how much that 90" set costs... :lol:
