See signature for TVs. I would rate them 9 out of 10 only because something better will come out eventually. That being said, they are both great TVs. It took me a long time to convince my better half that we "needed" to go HD, and now she understands why. :D

Does my Insignia 20" widescreen LCD with DVD player count? It's HDTV-ready but no HD tuner.

I have a HP PL4260 42" Plasma 720P that I purchased a year ago for 1,300. I think you can get this TV for about 1K today. I am very pleased with the quality of picture. Only drawback is the lack of settings for picture position on the set. Luckily, not much of an overscan issue with my receiving equipment.

A few months ago, I purchased a 15" Sylvania LC155SL8P LCD HDTV/EDTV. It is a 4x3 television with an ATSC tuner. This was for a guest room and also for football season as a second TV to move around. Picture is decent for the size and does a great job of SDTV. I have a D12 receiver connected today. This was about $250 dollars.

Where is your center channel speaker?? I would love a cabinet like yours but my fairly large Klipsch center placement is a problem.

Your setup is very attractive.

Thanks

edit: Never mind I just figured it out. Is that a custom cabinet you had made??

Panasonic PT40LC12 projection LCD. Paid $2995 a little over 4 years ago, replaced bulb about 2 1/2 years ago. Works great but appears to have dust on the mirror, anyone know how to clean it?

No custom. It is the center cabinet from a Hooker wall unit. It is kind of an interim piece that I have grown fond of. Very well made at about $500.00 at local furniture store delivered.

Pioneer 50" PDP-5080. Part of the new Kuro (black) project. Black levels are unbelievable on this set. This TV rocks. Being biased and all, I rate it a 10/10!

For HD we went with a Sony 60XBR2. We bought back in February from Tweeter. It was on sale for $3500, the next week I called them and they matched Amazon's price of $2999, can't beat that. It is my first HD TV and I love it. I will give it a 9/10, only because I am not happy that it does not display my computer on the full 60 inch screen.

9/10 not a perfect 10 only because it can't display 2 digital signals in PIP also can't turn off/on internal mute on the fly if switching from TV speakers for OTA to A/V receiver speakers for DVD/DIRECTV

actual types see below, the Syntax was more for a computer monitor at the time but the HD picture is very good and would give it a 7 but the SD is a 2 at best.

The Panosonic is still a great TV and give it an 8 for quality on SD and HD

The Vizio is new and so far I love it. Quality of picture is a 10 for hd and 9 for SD

The Gateway computer monitor also is used as an extra TV and the quality for SD is a solid 7. The HD (can only connect via component computer is DVI) has some ghosting problems during fast action would give it a 5.
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Matter of Opinion! The best HDTV is the one you get for free :D

Since both of mine were free and brand new when I got them, guess that means I have the best :lol:
