Let me preface this with the fact that I NEVER watch TV. I haven't watched TV "at MY house" for 6 years. I only watch TV at friends' like for the Superbowl, etc, maybe, thrice a year. I'm looking to buy a wall-mounted TV for aesthetics, tooooo, fill out a wall in a room, instead of a picture. I've been visiting electronic stores for a couple of weeks. I bought a TV to be delivered and then canceled the order today. All these salespersons say different things about the same TV(s). I'm a little confused. Do you own a Plasma/LCD/LED/3D TV?? Did you get it "Calibrated?" for $300? to save the "life" of the TV?" Did you mount the TV yourself? or have them do it for yet, another $300. I have all the tools to do the job. I could get my neighbor bud to help if need be. I'm considering the new Panasonic 3D or the G-series 50" Plasma (half the $ of the 3D). Do you think that this economy will get so bad that 3D "as the norm" will be stopped dead in its tracks? I won't be buying cable either. This will mostly be for blueray. Do you have the latest and greatest?
