Oh man, what a crazy day! My grandpa's television (32" 1995 Panasonic) finally blew today, so he calls me up in the morning to go looking for a t.v. set. We first went and were looking at all sorts, I figured we'd just buy something similar to the old one though. But no, I should have known he owns too much for that. We start looking at the Sony's, though we weren't fond of the LCD's and it's all they make now. The black levels were meh and the choppiness for motion put us off of it, he's huge into sports. Don't get me wrong, when less motion is on screen it is the most beautiful image I've seen, but didn't fit the needs.

Finally we settle on this Panasonic at Circuit City, they tell us to go kill an hour as it's on the truck. Whatever, we do. We come back at 3pm since 11:30 and it's not there? We go home and they will call us at 5, no call. We call them, they say call back... hmmm, they call us finally and say it didn't come in. We race there and get our money back, pissed, as it was our 3rd trip across the bridge into the city. We head to Best Buy to order the Panasonic, they tell us up to a month waiting list. In disbelief we plan to go home and move our little kitchen T.V. for the Giants game tommorow, but we looked around for the heck of it. Next to the Panasonic and Philips plasma sets was a beautiful Toshiba and I looked closely, it looked better than the other two, as if they were lined up in order. I really couldn't believe we didn't notice, it was amazing. Of course though, I didn't get excited this time... I knew it wouldn't be in stock, but we ask for the hell of it. One left! Yeah that's right, we need our truck again, won't fit in the car. Fourth Trip!!

Finally, after it's all said and done we have a beautiful Toshiba 42" Plasma HDTV, God this thing owns life! We also got the HDTV cable box, so the Giants and Mets in HD, at last! I'm going to go amaze myself some more with RE4 now, I might as well just move in! :D

Yes the Tv and your grandfather(Boss) both own. Although I want to happy when you guy invited me over and my 49ers lost. Not only did they loose, they lost in style....in HD. Though my mood was quick heightened when I saw Xbox in action on the TV. RE4 looked ok, but it wasnt great on that huge HD. You see too much and seeing how PS2 isnt all that great it brought out alot. Looks alot better on a smaller HD.

Agreed, Bio 4 looked okay on it... just cool mostly because it's big. But Ninja Gaiden and DoA, oh God... I never saw anything so amazing in my life. I can't wait for 360's PGR3 on that, damn! :o
