2 + 2 = 5 Has anyone actually got HD TV??, is it that much different?

LINK

I have one and YES it IS that much different. Once you go hidef you will not want to go back. Gaming in high def is also amazing. More and more channels are going hidef here.

and like c383 said, don't judge the picture byt seeing it in some of the bigger chains such as best buy. Go to Tweeter or a good home theatre place. Panasonic has a new 103 (or 5) inch plasma out!! Me wants.

My set displays analogue signal pretty decent. I can't complain. Stay away from DLP sets. they suck ass.

That article on ultra hi def sounds great. Future holds lots of goodness.

sweet jesus ... i really don't know what people want with this hdtv-crap ... and i say crap most consciously ... because everywhere around the globe they've been selling hdtv screens for over 2,5 years ... and on the other hand you have about a fistfull of channels distributing their shows in hdtv ... so where's the big f**king deal abou it! people are just so satisfied with technology and what can be done that they actually done care what it costs or when it will be full accessible or something ... just like the blue-ray and hd-dvd thing ... for 2 years they've been yelling "it's coming, it's coming" ... and what do we got until today ... no hd-dvd nor blue-rays ... but you can actually already buy a blue-ray burner ... for about 600~700€ straigh from japan!

and if anyone is about to write now ... yes i have already watched stuff in high-def ... and although i have to admit that its looking fan-freakin-tastic ... i'd rather wait a few years till analog-tv has died and i'm forced to use hdtv ... by then the prices will have dropped hopefully at least by 50%

Some people just like technology. Very much.

I wouldn't mind getting a HD-TV some time, but I anyway don't watch TV, so I'd have to spend a lot of money just for the few DVDs I watch every once in a while.

I just found out that my TV is HD. :) We have bought a HD reciever.

Plasma is no where as good as LCD. Major burn in problems after a few years.

I get a quite a few HD channels here. It's well worth the money you pay for the set. The HD box from Comcast is FREE. HDTV is not crap. I assume you are still watching TV on your little 19 inch, eh? Don't hate what you don't have.

Plasma is no where as good as LCD. Major burn in problems after a few years.

You do not know what you are talking about son. The plasma "burn in" BS is just that, BS. If you are not a retard and leave the set on a swtill image for days you will not get burn in. Plasma is a lot better than LCD. If you really need explanation I cna forward you to a place that will clear it all up for you. LCD is better than DLP though.

HD is especially useful with next generation consoles such as Xbox 360.

Nice resolution > 10 year old Rear projection.

Playing the 360 on a good large HD screen is very cool. I play on a 50 inch Panasonic plasma and it just looks so amazing. Imagine playing the 360 on this puppy: http://news.ecoustics.com/bbs/messages/10381/259584.html !!!

I've had 2 plasmas now and NO, none, nada burn in. Plasmas have come a LONG way Rob. LCD you can still get stuck with dead pixles and image retention issues. I have a HD LCD in my kitchen and it doesn't look anywhere near as good as my plasma.
