Alright... I've been craving the sharpness and elegance and beauty of big screen HDTV's for few years now. But their prices were just insane. I wanted to get something with 1080P (that is 1080 horizontal lines progressive) compared to Interlaced which really means half the number of lines. Of course the more the better.
So today, I became the proud owner of an eye piercing, retina-shattering-sharpness of a 47" LCD 1080p High Definition TV. And oh my god is this thing AMAZING, HUGE, WOW!
Alright, let me rephrase that. It's WOW only if you're receiving some "Good" HD programming. But if you're on the stupid satellite signal then... well you're out of luck! The stupid receiver is .... barely working in 480i mode (YES THAT SUCKS) if you know what I'm talking about.
So here's the end result. Because the TV is huge, and has a lot of definition. The older stuff will just not show it's full potential! That's problem #1. Which leads to problem #2, replacing everything hooked up to it! (yes, that sucks too) and all the new components are even more expensive!!
I played a DVD, and I just couldn't get my eyes off of it! I was glued to the crisp, vivid images .. and even then it was running in 480i mode. (The TV supports 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 720i, 480p, 480i) as you can see. 480i is the LOWEST of ALL resolutions!
Anyway, I'm pretty excited ... and the picture clarity on it's own is enough to keep me excited for a while ....
