    I got a small HDTV for like $300. Granted its only 15", but thats all I need because its in my room and I am only a few feet away from it.

    Its got really high resolution. I hooked up a xbox360 and it had just as good, if not better, a picture than my friends widescreen hdtv.

    A response to "Wii - DVD Compatible?"
    "I put a PS3 disc in it and the Wii wouldn't read it. WTF is this world coming to? If I buy a video game console, it better take and kind of media I want. Even if I were to dust off some of my vinyl LPs, the bastard better work."

    No it doesn't. It's got 720 lines, which is "low" HD.

    Impossible. Your friend's HDTV is either 720p (same as yours) or 1080p (better than yours).

    The only way yours would look better would be if your friends' was hooked up wrong (composite or S-Video cables resulting in a standard-def image on an HDTV) and yours was hooked up right (component cables, Wii set to 480p, etc).

    Your point?

    I don't recall stating that someone buying a new TV wouldn't get a flat-panel. Of course that's all that's going to be on the shelves.

    My point (which I stick to) is that most people have 4:3 already and one of the deterrents of upgrading is the cost. Another is that their existing 4:3 is still working just fine and they lack any real incentive to replace it.

    My cars have been payed off for 8 years; yes I could trade it in for a new one with a payment each month + interest.. But it is fine and there is your money for a HDTV.
    Well bully for you. But your anecdotal example of yourself has nothing to do with my point.
