    Re: Recent Purchases

    I placed my order on Thursday, paid $3 for rush processing, everything except the monitor arrived the next day on Friday because those items shipped out of NJ. One day delivery. That's just amazing. Unfortunately the only thing I really wanted to get quickly - the LCD - shipped out of CA and won't arrive until Tuesday

    Nope this is my first LCD. I must admit I'm a little worried about it. My first experience with an LCD a year or more ago was bad. It was 25ms and ghosted badly in games I returned it. LCDs seem limited to me (fixed optimal resolution, limited fps due to low 60 Hz refresh rate, high apparent dot pitch, possible dead pixels) but I decided to give one a try.

    That's a Sony 55" rear projection LCD in the living room I still can't get over how sweet that TV is. Just watched 'V for Vendetta' on it last night.

    True. I'm going to install the DVD burner and card reader today. The black floppy went into my son's PC.

    My 27" Toshiba was 10+ years old before I bought the new one. I always wanted a big screen. I finally convinced myself to take the plunge. No regrets. Got a good deal at best buy and 18 months no interest. My TV is even cheaper now. It was the brand new model for this year and I bought it when it had just come out.

    Those are more expensive but very nice. You are talking about either a plasma or LCD flat panel (not rear project LCD like mine). If your wife already wants one then go for it

    Well I still have the 32" RCA big screen from '94, 35 was as big as they went then for CRT style, but this 32 cost as much, had more features. Still a good TV, but I am yearning for bigger. (This has a lot of hookups that I can't make good use of in my Apartment)
