The new TV, she is thin
While I never really thought plasma was worth looking at, the DLP and LCD sets out there are either too large or too expensive. This low end panasonic 37" plays movies beautifully and does just fine on regular satellite broadcasts. Plus, it was dirt cheap (for a plasma) at Costco.
Now I just need to figure out where in the hell I'll put a center channel speaker, since the stand bulges out and gets in the way. Maybe it's time to finally go with some cheap in-wall units, though I've pretty much burned all my selfish purchase karma for the year (and probably next year too).
