it is true that standard TV on HD does look like hell, but when you are watching DVD it looks decent. my cable company charges me $24 for 10 HD channels and you have to get the HD/DVR box too.

My DLP is better than regular TV. Don't get HDTV because I refuse to pay extra, raher buy ammo

I work for Comcast and have yet to see any flat panel display TV of any type that I would be satisfied with purchasing. I am dissatisfied with the picture quality of all of them.

In true web-forum style I give you the following site to look at

I just bought a Sony 50" LCD (actually it is LCoS) projection TV, its the SXRD model... I gotta be honest, SD doesn't look near as bad as I thought it was going to. Some shows look like total shit and other shows on the same channel are easily watchable.
Tube TVs still look better and will always look better... If your planning on getting a 32" LCD TV, I would say don't and go buy another 32" CRT... 'specially if your not going to use HD. It really, really depends on your signal/channel quallity, etc.

HD is pretty darn cool, when it is good (Discover-HD does great)... But I have notice that a lot of crap isn't HD (even though its on my HD channels) or is SD that has been streched. I'm dumping my cable co because their HD service and selection is pathetic. Once you see it (HD) you will hate SD and HD is pretty much a "gotta have" on a big TV. YMMV.

Go buy one and return it if you don't like it.

i have heard that HDTV's with standard signals look like shit. is this true? i am NOT a videophile but i don't want a realy crapp pic either.

I do dish installs.  The only flat panels type TVs that I have seen that look good are samsung, panasonic and toshiba...maybe LG

so far, the panasonic looked best to me...

the others look fucking horrible....especially up close.

I believe Sears uses Dish for their displays...you may want to go there and ask if it's true...and have a look at the sets
