To me, graphics are everything. I want a new monitor, 1). It has to be bigger than my present one, of 20", 2). It has to show even better (I have a 6 yr old Viewsonic Professional series P-810). It has to be either a CRT, or a plasma screen, and I want my movies that I have burned to my external hard drives (over 400 movies, 7 Seagate 400gb harddrives), to play at their absolute best. Since new monitors cost so much anyway, I figure I might as well get a plasma screen, jeez, you can get a 52" plasma screen from Sony, for only $2200!!
And from a set-top dvd player, the movies look absolutely 3-d! But nobody in town, not Microcenter, not Comp-Usa, nowhere in the Galleria, (I live in Houston, Tx) has a really good one hooked up to a computer, so that you can see the possibilities there. Only one store had a cheap Hitachi hooked up, and hell that cheap thing didn't even impress on a set-top dvd!? Anybody in here got any experience?
