    OK, I cloesd my eyes, held my nose, and finally jumped into HD.

    I wound up with one of these for ths price ($884), although I didn't get it gfrom 6th Ave.

    http://www.6ave.com/product.jsp?x=32HL66

    Why? When I went to pick it up and went to use my 6th Ave credit card (with no interest for 18 months) I was told that the low price was not valid with the credit card. If I wanted to use their financing I would have to pay $1050 or something like that.

    Well, their interestfree credit card was their trump card. Since they lost that advantage, I took the printout of this ad to our local 6th Avenue and they not only matched that price, they were also having a special whre they pay the sales tax, another 80$ savings. It's lookin' fine now but I still have a lot of learning to do.

    Oh, I sprung anothe$140 for a three year in house service contract that kicks in when the Toshiba waranty expires. Dunno about this new-fangled technology...

    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    I donít know if you have seen Nov. issue of ConsumerReports magazine or not, but your TV Toshiba 32HL66 was the only 32 inch LCD TV that received 5 star (Excellent) in term of picture quality in HD. Good going.

    Hopefully after playing with it for couple of days, you will give us a full review of this TV in HD, DVD and SD mode.

    Thanks.

    Well you're smart to get the service contract as its good insurance for you. I just hope the 32" set is big enough for you. I have a 34" HDTV in the bedroom which is the perfect size for me & anything smaller would be too small for me. In the living room the HDTV is 48", the 34" set would be too small for me there. Both TV's are HD CRT's (48" rear projection Mitsubishi & 34"
    Panasonic) & I'm very happy with them & as far as I'm concerned watching HDTV is the difference between night & day. Make sure your using good component cables, not the cheap stuff your cable or satellite company does & make sure you have an HD DVR. Good luck

    This will go down as the single greatest buying mistake you are likely to ever make, and you'll regret it for the rest of your life.
    Just kidding.

    Welcome to the 21st century. Nice set, btw, I was fiddling with that very model the other day. I like Toshiba's TV's, the last few years they've seemed to be near the top in bang for the buck. Now you'll have to get well acquainted with DVE or Avia again. Lucky you. Enjoy!

    Atta-boy is order. Welcome to the 21st century. A 32" can seem very large if you're used to 25 or 27". I have a 32" in the basement that still seems plenty big enough. Toshiba does get some high marks. I was looking into that line before I went to a projector.
    So, how's it look? Do you have many HD channels? Tried a DVD yet? When you gonna get a second one for the bedroom?

    Definetely a good purchase.

    Comcast just added TNT to the HD line up along with a few other channels. Just in time for Basketball

    I have a HD DVR in my main room and bedroom, so I have plenty of HD to watch. Anyways, congrats and welcome to the world of sports in HD.
