    people with big hdtv's are only trying to compensate for smaller things in their lives... thinking getting a "60-inch anything" is doing good

    Depends on where you live in the world. In Norway we start with full digital TV in 2007-2008, but then again, there is lots of channels in the world that will still not support it, so...go figgure...

    In Canada, I hear it will be full HDTV in about 4-5 years.

    I got a 50" DLP HDTV, and I love it...
    The TV comes with a 10 Months box from Rogers with 40 HTDV channels, and about 300 regular channels. And of course, If I pay, I can get more channels on HDTV, about 100 channels I think...
    HDTV is better than DVD, you can see the diference pretty fast.
    HDTV in unbelivebly clear.
    Of course when you are very close to the TV you can see the pixels, that will always be there... it will be a looooonnnnggg way until you won't be able to see the pixels... that is on a plasma TV...
    On DLP you don't see any dots, all the pixels are connected to each other, there is no black lines in between the pixels, so if you stay close to the TV it is difficult to see the pixels.
    HDTV does not even compare with regular channels, quality is far better.

    Edit
    This is the TV I got:

    So you basically get the same load of mediocre programming and low quality shows that cater to the mindless masses whose lives are devoid of any enriching or qualitative entertainment and who would prefer to keep it that way by filling it with a rich splattering of gossip and reality shows, but with better picture quality?

    I'd buy that for a dollar!

    Well, I don't think it was a waist of money.
    And yes, I also do think that TV is a way of "brain washing" the viewer

    But then again, Arrow_Raider, did not ask you what you think about the content on TV

    And also, you DO have a choice to change the clannel to a better channel (if there are any), or turn the TV off....

    From what I saw until now, the only purpose of CC is to make fun of other replies.

    You cannot change chit chat. It shall and forever will be a conglomeration of philosophical terrorists and meddling charlatans. It is the very essence of opinions and flirtations.

    You cannot change chit chat, it will change your socks.

    I'm just hoping it to be more positive, instead of insulting other people with stupid remarks or comments.
