I paid $147 for my 32" HDTV. It's just fine.

If I'm going to pay over twice as much for a TV of that size, it will be 1080p and DEFINITELY at least 120Hz. I will probably be waiting awhile.

I thought we officially referred to him as "The Real Ric Romero[tm]".

No, a big screen and a projector, plus a 5.1 (or better) receiver with speakers can turn your home into a theater.

Yeah get all that gear.

Then watch the Standard Definition 2-channel content with your 65" HDTV set at the OH-MY-GWAD IT'S SO BRIGHT AND COLORFUL cartoon setting.

//Don't even get an HD cable box.

I paid $250 for a 47" flat panel (not flat screen - pet peeve) used from one of my co-workers whose girlfriend(!) wanted to get a 3D tv of the same size. The thing was less than two years old, and the lowest price I could find it online new or used was still over $800. Good deal as I actually knew who I was buying from, he delivered it to me at work, and I could see it at his place to make sure it wasn't a piece of crap (it was in perfect condition). Ran the calibration dvd I got for my other set on it, and I was done.
Luckily I already had a multi-region blu-ray player of the same brand, so they could talk to each other through the HDMI link... the player shuts off automatically when I turn off the tv and sets all the other parameters so the picture fits perfectly. That is some cool sh*t.
/hate when they turn the brightness all the way up in the store

My kid told me he bought a 60" plasma TV.  I didn't even ask about specs, just noted that eye doctors are cheaper.

Want picture quality? Use an antenna for local channels and a FTA dish for national feeds. Add a computer for dvr if you want.

Sometimes I think Ric's just trollin' FARK. I'm OK with this. I don't even want a TV. I clicked the article just to give him a page view.
