52" Samsung with 120hz refresh.  Started out with an Onkyo DVD player, went to a Samsung blu-ray for a week, then settled on a PS3.

Even with the Onkyo the picture with "standard" DVD's was fantastic .... Bourne Ultimatum was like watching everything in real life through a perfectly clear window.

I have the 50" rear projection LCD SXRD Sony, great TV, great picture, was less than a 40"+ LCD flatpanel a few years ago. The SXRD really makes a differance,' specially in SD channels, my friend has the non-SXRD model.

Was out at the BX a few weeks ago, bastards have the same TV for $800, I think I paid $1800.

Mine works as a monitor, too.  I have it plugged into my 24" iMac.  Everything is crispy clear, as you can see with my wallpaper on the screen.  Some other goodies in the shot; nothing spectacular, but it's all awesome to me.  No room for big "home theater" setups like the pictures above.  It's my first apartment, and I only had about $3k to spend on everything for my setup.  Apple TV, Pioneer receiver, Bose fronts, Polk Audio center, Velodyne sub just out of the shot, and I don't even remember what my rears are.  They were expensive, but I dropped them and broke the grills off, so I have no idea.  Apple TV, Wii, XBox 360, oh, and the TV!  42" 1080p Philips.  Most beautiful picture in the store, so that's the one I got.

That's why I didn't get a 120Hz.  My brother got a 52" XBR with Motionflow, and I can't watch it.  I feel weird looking at it.  It just doesn't seem right.  He says he can make it 60 again, though.

The Bose I bought (I don't mind 'em for 200 bucks), the Polk my brother gave me (it's an older one, and sounds beautiful), and the Velodyne my mom gave me a while back.  I don't argue with free.  I don't need to be audiophile approved.  It just needs to sound nice to me.  I'm a 24 year old making minimum wage, in my own apartment.  I say I'm doing well.

If you can afford the "good" stuff, then good.  I can't.

8 foot wide picture delivered by this 200 pound monster.  Three 9" ultra high resolution
CRTs with 15,000 dollars' worth of lenses in front of them deliver count-the-pixels resolution
quality up to and beyond 2048x1536, with true blacks and a smooth, filmlike image that
gives up nothing to any other technology except in terms of sheer brightness, which
isn't an issue anyway as it's bright enough to make you squint on bright scenes.

Original cost:  About 45,000 dollars to the U.S. Government.  
Intended application:  Military and commercial flight simulators, with night vision compatibility.

My cost:  About 1000 dollars including all costs associated with refurbishing it.  

Projected lifespan:  Hard to say.  The chassis has over 50,000 operating hours on it
and it just got a fresh set of tubes put into it less than 300 operating hours ago,
with a tube life in excess of 10,000 high quality hours in normal viewing.

I figure it's got another ten years in it at the very least.

Needless to say, it does 1080P.  It could do that before HD was even a defined standard.

Curiosity overwhelms me.  What brand/model would you recommend?  

I figured, considering it's just me in my little apartment, and that the high's come from the center mostly, that since the high's aren't too spectacular on the Bose, it wouldn't matter, because it still has nice, deep, full sound.

Bottom line is, I don't mind 'em.  I LIKE the sound.  I can't turn them up anyway, so it doesn't matter.

If you have a Circuit City that is near you having a liquidation sale going on, try finding a matching pair of Polks for your center. I seen some people saying that they have Polk floor standers for $150 bucks. Matching the front 3 timber wise is the most important thing you can do.

Sound is subjective, but when it comes to bose, they don't care about sound quality.
"Bose, better sound through marketing"....lol
