Talking My New TV

Well I finally took the plunge and got a HDTV.

On Sunday I picked up a Dynex DX-LCD42HD-09. It is a 42" 1080P tv and one hell of a change from my old 27" JVC tube. I got it for the cheap price of $729 and it looks almost as good (just as good some say) as the brand name ones that cost twice as much.

Basically you just have to spend a little bit of time calibrating it and you will end up with a excellent picture for a very good price. If any one has it and needs help/suggestions on the calibration I suggest going here, as that is where I learned everything I did about it.

Currently watching Wall-e in 1080P and damn does it ever look good.

Next I just have to build a good proper HTPC to go with it.

Here are a couple pics of it:

Congrats! I recently took the plunge myself, and Wall-E was one of the first things I watched in 1080p as well....I nearly shat myself. Great price on that, BTW; I paid $850 (before tax) for my 42LG50 (42" 1080p LG), after deciding that the Sammys, Sharps and Sonys were out of reach.

You should try Ratatouille, if you get the chance; it's mesmerizing.
