    More people have 4:3 TVs than 16:9 still.

    I think this was an "Everybody Votes" poll a while back.

    Wide FTW HDTVs are getting so cheap now even for full 1080P sets so 720p sets should be crazy cheap. $1000. is not that much when you think about what you will get out of a tv Vs. other ways to spend a G

    Define "so cheap" and "crazy cheap". What's currently on the market doesn't fit my definitions of those terms.

    Then they will be obsolete as new tech such as SEDtv and Laser tv come out.
    Umm, seriously? Come on. Those technologies are still at their earliest stages. The first laser TV isn't expected until almost the end of the year (which, realistically, probably means sometime next year or the year after) and will be an elitist gimmick product that costs a fortune.

    LCD and plasma are not going to be "obsolete" anytime soon. Get real.

    This basically backs up what I just said.

    Of course, if you don't care that 720 lines, while better than standard-def's 480, is not quite full 1080 high-def, and you don't care about TV size, and you don't care about quality, you can get an "HDTV" on the cheap. Say $300 for a 19" widescreen 720p LCD "HDTV".

    You're still missing out on a lot of the content on true HD content (Blu-Ray, etc), but it's certainly enough to handle the Wii which is only 480 lines anyway (or HD content over satellite/cable, which is only 720 lines and not 1080).

    $1000 For a tv is totally in budget for more people than do they just choose to spend on other things. $3.00 a pack for cigarettes x 365 days a year =$1,095
    Is just one example or buy the hummer or other big gas sucking or I gotta have 400 hp in my car to go the speed limit at 10 MPG. People piss away money on plenty of stupid stuff more than a Tv Screen.

    OK I do retract my comment about laser and Sed tv.

    I think I talk to more people than you. $1000 would be considered "a lot". You might have rich friends/family, but they are not representative of most of society. Most people want a TV under $500, since that's what they're used to paying for tube TVs.

    It's not like I don't know people who've spent $2000+ on a TV but they are not the norm.
