Yea, it's the same thing with HDTV. You get yourself one them
expensive HDTV's, you pay for HDTV service too and then find that 90%
of the broadcasting is in 4:3 anyway. What a bunch of chumps you all
are for falling for this shit. I had a 26" widescreenHDTV and ended
up getting burn in from playing most games and watching TV at 4:3. I'm
not putting up with the short fat people on the screen as most people
do. Took the POS Viewsonic back to Costco and got a refund and went
back to lovely 4:3 CRT. I am now back to CRT for both TV and computer
use. Bring on the new technology because this LCD shit is just that -
I bought a wide screen HDTV about 2 years ago when my regular TV died on me.
And while there's only about 10 HD channels (out of 300) on my cable
service, there's no contest between watching a HD channel vs regular
Later this year, the dish networks are claiming to provide about 200 HD
channels. Might have to switch from cable to dish. :)
As to the burn in, I had read about it, so I went with a DLP TV. No burn in
even with black bars on the sides. The lamp did have to be replaced after
2 years, but was reading the other day about a new DLP TV that the lamp is
suppose to last the life of the TV. Don't recall the make, model, or when
it'll be out. Will search later for it.
