    I wish, but we're selling this house next year, so we can't put any holes in the walls. In our new house we're gonna buy next summer we will hang it on the wall.

    That's the TV that convinces me LCD is where the future is. I <3 it. So vibrant, not your typical LCD in the least. Where'd you get it?

    I thought my samsung 9D series LCD was one of the best until I saw the bravia xbr.

    it really is amazingly good. turn down the backlight a few notches and it'll really impress.

    Circuit City. It was on sale for $3199. Circuit City sent me a 10% off coupon over the weekend. I was totally shocked they let me used the coupon, but they did. :wiggle:

    and IMO it's better than the 42" panasonic plasma (500U series) though it's close.

    panasonic does better on DVDs and SD content, the sony does better on HD and PC

    Won 3 XBox 360s. One went to my brother, another went to my good friend. My good friend didn't need one so it went back to me. Sold that one and the one I kept for $800 each. :o

    Panny's are great plasma TVs, but because our room has a lot of windows and we hated the glare on the CRT we had, we opt for LCD instead.
