    Intel has produced a new tech. This will be available as early as this Christmas. It is an lcd tv using lcos. The most unbelievable thing is that a 50 inch will be around $1000. It will be even better than 1080 pi. Also it is 7 inches deep. This will make it very affordable for the big game. I love HDTV.:geaux:

    This is gonna be GREAT - the sooner the better...

    ...I have a 11 year old Mitsubishi 50" rear projection set that I have replaced the power supply on twice (@ $350 a pop) in the last three years....

    ...the wife is seriously freakin' out over how much I'm gonna drop on my next set...

    ...of course, she freaked out when I bought my set in March of '93 for $2200, which the price hasn't really gone down from since....

    According to Intel, the TV will sell for $1000 only to high volume customers (ie retail channels). The author of that 'blurb' on the link above seems to be mistaken, or else he's quoting a source that is exclusive to him. From Intel:

    http://www.intel.com/pressroom/archive/releases/20040108corp_a.htm

    This means the TVs will retail for around ~$1,500+, which is still a good price. Eventually the price will come down of course, but initially they won't be $1,000 unless Intel is subsidizing their sale at that wholesale price (no reason to do that).

    Don't believe the hype. I sure do love my Hitachi HD 57"
