    ehh, not really (atleast not for playing the Wii)

    If your buying one just for Wii play, then I would go with a less expensive non-HDTV. A TV with EDTV (Enhanced Definition) technology would suite you just fine.

    However, if your looking into buying an LCD / Plasma or DLP for HD-gaming purposes, I would go with DLP or LCD

    DLP technology is significantly cheaper and just as good (IMO) as LCD / Plasma.

    Samsung produces quite a few HDTV DLP's that are reasonably priced that have an amazing picture quality.

    Go for a EDTV projector. It is fun to play wii with a very big screen.

    From experience - LCD is the best.

    Yeah I love my HDTV DLP by Samsung. Significantly better than any LCD I have seen.

    I love my 40" Bravia LCD :D. It's pretty good for gaming (tested only with a 360 thus far).

    Probably because the Wii doesn't produce an HD signal.

    All your TV is doing is stretching the picture to either 720p / 1080i or 1080p resolution (whichever one you have it set to) and no amount of cables will help with that.

    You need to manually adjust your HDTV to display the Wii in 480p resolution to get the best picture quality from your Wii.

    Thanx for ALL the replies...we have an HD signal here so I would be going with ANYTHING HD ...I was just wondering about Lag Time on each ?
    We have a big screen (55") LCD in the living room and I didn't notice much if any Lag Time on it...but what do I know , this is my first gaming system since the EARLY Atari ! :)

    I wouldn't bother. Save your money and buy another Nunchuk controller :thumbsup:

    Why do you think a Nunchuk controller is worth getting? I say if you've got a HDTV get the most out of the bloody thing.

    Why don't you take a look at the link to the TV he provided before posting your nonsence.

    Why don't you take that stick out of your ass? I was simply stating that IF you have a HDTV you should invest in purchasing a component cable. There will be others viewing the topic wondering whether it's worth it and it is.

    If you would have actually payed attention to the thread you would have known that the link the guy provided pointed to a TV that was NOT HD. Also you f*ckin idiot, you can't receive an HD signal through regular A/V Cables. You HAVE to have HD component cables. So what, by "stating that IF you have a HDTV you should invest in purchasing a component cable," you were pointing out something that is blatantly obvious?

    The guy was wondering if purchasing HD component cables would provide a better picture on his non-HD TV, to which my response was no, and that he should spend his money on something else (like another nunchuk controller.)

    You should go do this :mad2: :thumbsup:
