Funny you should mention that.Two weeks ago I bought a Panasonic PZ800 50" plasma and a Sharp Aquos 37" LCD as a secondary tv.I also bought a Harman Cardon home theatre system for the plasma.

My computer monitor is a 27" Samsung which can also double-up as an HD tv.

You can say I'm ready for hockey season.

On a side note,at eleven o'clock this morning (Friday) I ordered TSNHD,SportsnetHD among others and I'm still waiting.I called them again an hour ago.It's been a total of 14 freaking hours.Going to hit the sack.Will be surprised if they have it done by morning.

That's Videotron for you.

HD Projector baby... 100 inches of hockey!

It's not even that expensive... I don't know why more people don't buy them instead of LCD's or plasma's.

A few reasons;

1. The cost of replacement bulbs,

2. The cost of a proper screen (not just shining it onto a sheet or a regular white wall)

3. Room sizing/setup,

4. Natural lighting, and this is an important one that some will overlook. The full effect of a projector image will not be felt without a good amount of darkness -- this makes it impractical for most non-basement setups. I have a friend who found this out the hard way, and he has aluminum foil and cardboard covering all the windows in his living room and it looks horrid. Flat-panel TV's aren't affected in the same fashion by light, and are suitable for both darkened and lightened rooms.

There's some significant planning involved in creating an optimal setup using a projector -- and if done correctly, it's tremendous -- but with a TV, there is much less involved.
