Oh Lawd, won’t you buy me a 80inch screen, My friends all have 50’s I have to be seen


Logic Smogic!  Consumer Reports and all the leading  Audio/Video magazines  say’s based on my room size I shouldn’t buy a TV larger than a 46 inch set.   A screen too large could cause eye strain and headaches.

Hell, I’m a man, when it come to size we  want the biggest.   It’s like a car, yes a six cylinder  is adequate and it will get the job done-how nice.  But we want the HEMI, eight cylinders of rumbling power.  Sure, its gets 2 miles to the gallon and you’ll need a  small business loan to buy gas.   It’s about pride, power and glory!  (excuse me, as I wipe a tear from my eye)

No man runs up to your car and say’s ooh, you have six?    It’s damm man, you got a friggin HEMI!

SO UNDERSTAND AND RECOGNIZE!   I can’t buy a 46, my fragile male ego wont allow it.  My children have fifties,   Heck, my daughter has a forty something in her bedroom.

I want immediate blindness, as you enter my postage stamp of an apartment, you’ll need sunglasses.  I want ooooh’s .   I wanna hear, oh its so big! (so few of us hear that without uncontrollable giggling)     Look at that picture!

“I wanna say to my clearly envious visitors , ohhh its nothing, just something to watch the news”

Last fall, a friend invited a few of us to watch the 49er’s in 73 inches of half time wonder. The TV was one of those rear projection TV‘s from the rent a center.  The TV sucked big time, the  picture looked blurry, from the side, so we had to sit in a small section of the sofa to properly see the TV, there we where crammed, on this small section of this large sofa, unable to reach for snacks or drinks.    No one returned during the playoffs.

Lawd, I want one of  the larger, LCD,LED or Plasma… with a good bright and sharp picture. and if you can delivered  it before the Oscars or NBA playoffs  it would be appreciated…

and remember,  ooohs and ahhhs……

 

See Lawd, Double! Double!  if I get anything smaller, my kids will snicker, please…its about HONOR!

The Top 10 HDTV of 2011


 

 

 

This is a great time to buy an HDTV. Televisions in 2011 have taken 2010’s hot trends–3D, Internet apps, and LED lighting technology for LCD sets–and made them better and cheaper. Today, most sets from major manufacturers offer a wide array of Internet-connected features and 3D support through active-shutter or polarized 3D glasses. Traditional CCFL-backlit LCD panels have nearly disappeared from store shelves, supplanted by their LED-backlit or LED-edgelit cousins, which deliver more-vivid color and sharper contrast despite using less power overall.

Meanwhile, plasma TVs haven’t managed to get quite as skinny as LED-edgelit sets, but they’re still very much alive and kicking; and some of the plasmas that we tested earned image quality scores comparable to those achieved by high-end LED sets that cost nearly twice as much. If you’re looking for big and less expensive, plasma is still your best bet–as long as you’re okay with a television set that consumes up to twice as much power as an LED TV of equal size.

LG HDTVThe LG Infinia 47LW6500, combines a slick design, a 47-inch LED-backlit screen, excellent features, and attractive passive 3D performance to emerge as one of our favorite HDTV sets of the year. (Photograph by Robert Cardin)Our PCWorld Labs jury of testers found that this year’s sets did not display content significantly better than last year’s, though the refresh-rate war seems to be largely over. LCD sets used to handle motion-heavy scenes far worse than plasmas, since LCD sets couldn’t refresh the screen image fast enough to keep up, and as a result the video sometimes looked blurry. Now Sony and Samsung are offering LCD televisions with refresh rates as high as 960Hz, though most LED sets remain at 120Hz or 240Hz–and exceeding 240Hz may not make things look better.

In fact, we often notice more “juddering” (image artifacts created when fine patterns warp or vibrate on screen) in 240Hz sets than in 120Hz TVs–so don’t be fooled into thinking that the bigger number is always better. Read our online feature “LCD HDTV Motion Features: How Do They Work?” to understand why this happens.

In our testing we’ve found that each television in a model line performs similarly regardless of its screen size, so you can expect 46-inch, 55-inch, and 60-inch Samsung D8000 series TVs to perform equally well. When shopping for a TV, find the model line you like best and then choose the size that’s right for you. For tips on finding your ideal TV size, read “Five Common HDTV Questions, Answered.” For an interactive, ranked listing of the best televisions we’ve reviewed recently, see our Top 10 HDTVs chart.

Image Quality

If you’re buying a new midrange or high-end TV from one of the major TV manufacturers, you can expect it to look great. Our jurors rate TV image quality on a 100-point scale, and the difference between the TV with the highest marks for image quality and our number-ten choice was a mere 6 points.

The top three sets nailed our image-quality tests. The Samsung UN46D8000 and the LG Infinia 47LW6500 did suffer from fine patterns in certain test scenes (a brick wall, for example, or a city skyline) vibrating slightly. The Sony Bravia 46HX820 had slightly lower scores in brightness and color, but delivered better de­­tail levels and handled the intricate-detail test scenes flawlessly. Overall, video on all three sets looked fantastic.

The Infinia 50PZ950, LG’s flagship plasma set, received color, detail, and brightness scores on a par with those of the top three, but it struggled in our motion tests: A scrolling movie clip of a seaside town looked choppy and vibrated a bit on the 50PZ950, while the other top sets rendered it smoothly.

The Vizio XVT3D650SVLG Infinia 47LW5600, and Samsung PN51D6500 all delivered generally good image quality but had a few additional minor flaws. The Vizio suffered from slightly muted color; the LG showed less contrast; and the Samsung showed more problems with detail and motion than the top three did.

Images on the Panasonic Viera TC-L42D30 weren’t as good as on competing sets, due to muted colors and a greenish tint. The same company’s Viera TC-P50ST30 had oversaturated skin tones and motion problems; and the Sharp LC-60LE835U looked too dark and had a relatively narrow range of good viewing angles.
