50" SXRD + X360 = gaming bliss.

no problems in lag or green blobs. Btw, Ghost Recon has to be the best eye candy on the SXRD right now!

thank you. that sure did make my decision alot easier. i play alot of sports and racing games so lag woulda killed my decision. im gonna get the sxrd 50 inches in the next month for $1700. i hope there is another price drop soon. maybe im just being greedy. :D

$1700? That's awefully optimistic I think.

i can get it for $1700 today if i had the cash. my girl works at b.b. she gets wholesale plus 5% off. im gonna have the cash within the next month. just waiting on a nice big check to get signed. im hoping they drop the price again before i go for it since there gonna discontinue the model. its amazing how much of a markup some of there products are. especially the furniture and appliances. lg is there best deal with the discount. im not lucky just in a good situation.

doubt i could. i love making it uncomfortable for them when they try to help. i will ask them questions that are not on the card which i already know the answer to. then watch them struggle to answer it. my girl works there now so i cant do it like i used to.

one time i told the kid there was a new amd chip in sony tv.

he was running around telling customers how great the chip in the tv was. he told my buddy who works on pcs and he just started laughing.

don't feel bad. A couple of us went over to our local BB and asked then a simple question of what a V Chip was. Answer= its for gaming :bowdown: lol

Local CC tells everyone that DLP's burn-in.
And most of the guys I work with can't even read the cards or articles that I print off of cnet to help customers :rolleyes:

It's sad. I've only found a select few in my area that actually try to know what they are talking about. Sadly there's only a few that I work with (out of the whole district) and the rest are generally at tweeter.

Anyways thats still a great deal, enjoy your tv.

tweeter is great for people who dont know much about electronics. i have only been in there a few time because of the prices are to high for me. but there sales people actualy know about there products. i have had a nice conversation every time i go in there. at b.b. or circuit city i usualy get headaches when talking to the sales people. i just wanna tell them to shut up and explain to them why there wrong. but i dont do that anymore. maybe when my girl quits. i also found out today that i can get these speakers for a great price.

klipsch synergy III

f-2 / floor stand speakers for $183 each. i will need 2 of course.
c-2 / center channel for $149
s-2 / surround sound speakers for $221 a pair

that will be $600 off b.b. retail price. every day is christmas for me now. im gonna be broke this entire year.

I have Klipsch & Yamaha matchup myself and I love the way they sound together. I have the reference series, but the Synergy series should sound great too!
