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!

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.

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 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

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!
