    I have a 55" 120Hz Sony Bravia in the living room. It's the only TV in my apartment. I do not have it hooked up to the internet. For some reason, I have been unable to set myself to that small task. I've got a DVD player hooked up to it and cable.

    Great quality and build. The picture is amazing.

    I do not spend much time in front of the TV. When I do sit down, I only watch stuff on Blu-Ray/DVD. (I do not have any cable TV service.) When I do decide to watch something, I want it to look spectacular.

    52" Panasonic Plasma

    (I would have gotten a 60", but I couldn't fit it in the only open spot left in a fairly small livingroom.)

    An additional benefit of having the plasma TV is that in the winter I can heat the downstairs with it. ;)
  4. Den - 110" Epson projector.
    Den - 60" Panasonic Plasma flush with wall motorized projector screen

    Bedroom - 48" sony LCD 3D tv

    Bedroom 2- 40"Samsung LCD

    28" Hitachi CRT in my room....seriously.

    TVs are expensive, although in a few month I will be upgrading it.

    I have a 3 year old 55" Sony Bravia LCD in the living room. Just bought a 40" LED Westinghouse for bedroom. My 6 year old Dell 2405 FPW is still kicking it for Gaming.

    We currently have 2 TV's. Myself, I'm pretty brand loyal as long as the quality lasts.This is pretty true for any type of devices. For TV's I'm a Sony fan. For the main TV it's a KDF-60XS955 but from say one it has been used as a PC monitor / HTPC monitor / X-Box 360. A few lamps have been replaced but it's still going. The other is an older 36" Sony Grand WEGA that I think has plate glass in the front. We have our Wii connected to it. That's mostly because it can withstand the Wii remote being chucked at it without even batting an eye lash.
  11. 72 centimeter diagonal CRT (you figure out what that amount to in inches). Good enough for occasional sports event that I want to see.
     
  12. It's amusing the see the anti-television snobs have their little tirades then mention they watch TV shows online anyway and fail to see the inconsistency.

    Mitsubishi HD1000U 720p Projector, 114" image.
    (Soon to be upgraded to 1080p Epson 5020UB.)

    Folks, if you haven't ever tried a projector as your main TV you're seriously missing out! You can now get something pretty decent for $800+ that will give you a 110" image.

  14. I have a 65" Mitsubishi DLP that I use for my computer monitor and just watch hulu, netflix, etc. I especially like it because it does not have any glare. I cant stand glossy displays. My wife has a 60" Sharp LED that she watches crappy teenie bopper shows on in the other room.

    No cable in the house though, both our tvs are just computer monitors.

    Only one worth mentioning is the 42" Sharp that I've been using for quite a while, to put it in perspective it cost over $2000 when it was bought many years ago. It does 1080p and looks as good as the day it was purchased if not better than the sub $1000 units these days, next TV purchase is sure to be a Sharp, can't go wrong with a company that makes their own panels. Going to need a another soon, the 15 year old 32" CRT in the family room is starting to have trouble. Likely replacement will be a 46" or 50" Sharp or Samsung.

    I have a Vizio 42" 120 hz that I use for my gimmicky 3d video games like Black Ops and Avatar, Batman and Crysis 2, and my gimmicky 3d blu ray movies like Captain America and Monsters vs Aliens. Haw haw! I dont watch "television" but I tell you, I just cant stand the awesome 3d that I get from my >50 3d movie collection. Hee hee! the games look better than the movies. what a fad. :) I use the awesome 3d on my awesome tv every single day. the 120 hz makes netflix and other boring 2d movies and games look smooth and vivid. the Vizio I have also has wifi connectivity making things like netflix simple. It is so sad that so many people are scoffing at this tech. I could not enjoy my tv more.
  20. You'll laugh..13" CRT. They laughed at me when in the showers, but I always thought it 'ok' to be small. Hey, makes my apartment look HUGE.

    I have a 37" 1080p Sammy HDTV. It's 60Hz and CCFL based. Nothing special, but it has a great S-PVA panel with deep inky blacks and movies look awesome on it. 120Hz HDTV's aren't even real 120Hz panels anyway, so don't fall for the marketing fluff.

    I also have two Dell U2410 (H-IPS LCD) monitors, along with one Dell 2408WFP (S-PVA LCD) monitor.

    To tell you the truth, I'm tired of LCD tech. I'm sure a lot of you have never even watched a direct view CRT HDTV, but if you did you would be blown away by the image quality. CRT's are far superior to LCD in every way, except for sharpness, brightness, power consumption, and space requirements.

    I long for CRT-like performance in a flat screen format. OLED tech will make that happen in the future. I already have a few mobile devices with AMOLED screens and they blow me away. I can't wait to use larger OLED screens.

    Some piece of **** CRT that my friend left at my apartment after he failed out of the university. I never use unless I have buddies over and Adult Swim is on.

    I have a 32" TV for my PC, I don't watch neither Public TV or any kind of paid service
  25. Very interesting subject with interesting results.

    people do like humongous TVs. 50"? 60"? And over? I have a 40" and I think it's already huge... and I have a big living room.

    and lots of sets per household too! I have 1 TV in the living room and that's it. seriously, people!
