Very nice. Some agents are better than others.

Yup. If you don't like what the current rep is saying, either get moved up the chain, or call back and get someone else. Someone will give you want you are looking for if you are patient enough to look for it.

I knew calling back or asking for a MGR would get better results I just hate calling places like this and talking to a F^&%ing computer. Then you get ticket and yell something into the phone and computer person thinks you want something else and starts all over.

Re: Buying My First HD TV & Need Help

I bought a 32 inch Toshiba HD LCD about three years ago. It's just a 720p, but I am still amazed by the picture quality. I watch bluray on it all the time and play my PS3 on it as well. I would love to have a bigger TV sometime when I pay the car off, but right now, I'm more than pleased with the TV I have. In fact, it has a better HD picture than my friend's Sony 40 inch LCD he bought a few years back.

Now, I realize the higher HZ the better moving objects look, but I'm not necessarily convinced that 1080p is THAT big of a difference when it comes to broadcast TV. As far as I know, they are still shooting mainly in 720p/1080i.

Yes you are correct, only 1080p you can see is through a blu ray player.

I'm just giving you a hard time. The 40 inch samsung was the biggest TV I could get for the space. The sides of the TV actually touch the inside of the cabinets.

Re: Buying My First HD TV & Need Help

So honestly, can any of you guys tell THAT much of a difference between watching a blu-ray movie on a 720p TV as opposed to watching it on an actual 1080p TV? I mean, I can definitely tell a difference between a regular DVD movie and a blu-ray, but I'm wondering if the refresh rate is really the bigger difference as opposed to the rate of the progressive scan?

Here is my little saying as far as HD goes for the casual viewer.


480p to 720p quantum leap; 720p to 1080p hop scotch

Re: Buying My First HD TV & Need Help

Probably depends on the size of the TV. The bigger ones you would probably see a difference. Anything under 50", probably not.

That's my thought process as well.

I think also has something to do with getting the right size TV for the viewing distance between the TV and the couch. Some get a TV that's too big for the area in which they are going to watch TV and it just doesn't seem to look nearly as good. I definitely feel for my living room, I could use at least a 40 inch TV, but probably nothing past that.

Re: Buying My First HD TV & Need Help

So what do you all think about the 3-D TVs? I can't afford one right now, but if I could, do you think it would be a good investment or is it just a fad?
