    We bought a 52" Sharp a couple of months ago for the living room, and I'm looking to get a 26" for moderately cheap so I can use it for games, computer, and TV. I have a massive 32" ancient type of TV, and it's definitely showing its age. =\

    I got a lot of HDTVs at my place, but that's because my dad works for a electronics warranty company, so he deals with TVs and such all the time.

    I consider HDTV a rip off/emperor's new clothes for the masses and as monitors have been there for the better part of 20 years I am not going for it.

    This being said most people I know have now replaced their TV reception with a modded xbox/PC and only have a TV for the purposes of a bigger output than a monitor or just because it works still and no need to throw it out.

    I have a 108" plasma in my closet, and my bedroom walls are made of LCD displays.

    108"? Are you serious? Where did you buy it and how much did it cost?

    We have 2, one is a small, just guessing 22" in my parent's room and another 32" as a main TV. First one just gets OTA ATSC, second one is a victim of LCD abuse. (regular old non-DTV TV) Both are something like 1366x768 resolution. We also have 2 non HDTVs, one in my room (13") which doesn't work (I need to buy a remote, a converter box and an antenna) and one in the upstairs living room (32").

    EDIT: Just remember my desktop has a TV tuner that I usually use to record TV, and its monitor is 22".
