While I like shiny gadgets just as much as the next person - okay maybe a little bit more than the next person - I never really saw the "need" for a nice TV. When I say nice, I mean the huge a&$ HD flat screens. I know they look nice, but I didn't really appreciate what they could do.
We watched Hellboy II, which I have seen several times on a "normal" TV. Yesterday, though, I totally appreciated the difference. Hard to explain, but let's just say I am convinced about LCD TVs, especially if you like watching movies. Of course, a nice set of home audio speakers will complete the whole set up.
Oooh wait...I am a hobo, and hobos don't get to have these pretty things. :(
