Corch Yox could get some sound out of them.

No doubt.  A couple of years of Yoxercise and they would be Dolby III.

And the winner is...

58" Panasonic plasma from Best Buy.  Has some kind of 4 picture thingy (that's a technical term...) that makes it the ultimate for watching sports with no blur.  Since we don't game or even watch movies too much, it was perfect.  We wanted the 52" but they were out of them and the 58" was $300 more...

We got the HDMI cables, a new receiver, the extended warranty and paid for the calibration visit.

36 months interest free sealed the deal.  It gets delivered on Saturday because we could not fit the box in the back of my SUV... 

Thank you for all the suggestions and hints and stuff - made us sound like educated consumers and I think we got a good deal.

He is happy.   :)

"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shitty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Great choice.  Give me a full review when you get the chance please.  I have been trying like hell to make the 42" in our LR go out for a few months now so I can gets me one of those.  Of course, I saw the 63" Plasma in the Best Buy add yesterday and immediately fell in love lust.

On the radio today, consumer reports picked Panasonic as the best brand on a tv they were rating, so I think you got a great brand. :thumbsup:

The Best Buy geek was slobbering over this TV, and since it was not the most expensive one (which might prejudice his opinion) I paid attention.  Something about Panasonic bought out Pioneer's technology for the processor or something?  I don't remember.  That and 4 in 1 picture something something?  And blazing fast speed to prevent blurry sports action?

Whatever.  It was pretty.

I got bashed for owning a Vizio LCD on another forum the other day by Bamagrad. He was on some kick about DLP and I told him it sucked and was on the way out.  I bought my 47" Vizio LCD this year for 898.  I Got it at Sams Club.  They had the best deal and I went everywhere.  My second choice was a Samsung.  They had the best picture quality in my opinion of any that I saw in the stores.  Whatever you purchase buy the extended warranty.

Extended warranty is a ripoff. 

I just bought my daughter a Vizio 42" at Wal Mart for her apartment.  Paid under $700.

Their cable doesn't have the HD channels (unless they pay extra since the basic cable is included in rent) but the picture was pretty good. 

DLP doesn't suck, but I don't see where it's of any significant advantage on a TV at this point.  It's cost prohibitive, too. 

I've got all that HD shit at the house, but do I seriously, really need to see Vern Lundquist's mole hairs?  I think I could almost stand for it to be a little less HDier.

Extended warranty is not a ripoff for this kind of technology - not now, anyway.

We got it delivered today and... wow.  Just.  WOW.  We have HD cable channels and flipping between the same channel on regular and the HD version was impressive.  Watching the Disastros getting their asses handed to them AGAIN was amazing in HD - just like seeing them get their asses handed to them live and in person!

Color me impressed.

I believe him on it.  

My friends Brian and Leann just got an $1100 buy back on their 2 yr old tv because it broke, and the part to fix it was not available or some stupid thing.  Without their extended warranty, they would have been stuck with a $1500 inoperable paperweight.  One $400 extended warranty later, new and upgraded tv with minimal outlay of capital on their part.

It was worth $400 to us too.  The warranty on this covers damn near any eventuality.  And remember what I do for a living - I read the damn contract.

For a coffee maker or a VCR?  No, not worth it.  For something that costs $2000?  Damn right it is.

It's the only thing I have an extended warranty for, I think.

My TV warranty was like $26 for 1 additional year.  That puts 2 years total.  It was kind of hard to say no to that.  My father's 66" Sony LCD bit the dust and they had to honor his warranty. He paid over $3K when he bought that TV and the warranty was $250 for 5 yrs, not too bad.  I believe Dave Ramsay has good ideas, but he's not god.  I saw where Best buy had a 42" plasma for 499 with a 2 yr warranty, it's their store brand but that still is a hell of a deal.
