Marks post brought up something.. I thought that there was legislation that stated that displays had to have speakers in them? BH has several "displays" listed without speakers.. Has anyone bought a display without speakers recently?

They're probably from the professional/corporate lines geared towards electronic signage.

Yeah, but why not use them as a display in a HT setting? Would there be any reason not to use one of them?

Hello, I would go for Plasma! Plasma has great viewing angles and you get alot for the money! Please check out: http://plasmatvbuyingguide.com/plasmatv/compare-reviews.php

I spent about six months finding the best picture quality for the money I was willing to spend. Last year I chose the PN50C7000, and I love the picture, especially after using the calibration settings!

The largest screen they have reviewed is the 64" Samsung, which should be plenty big enough for most people.

Basically, I suggest going with the best picture for your money instead of the size. So, 64" for now seems to be your best bet!

I have a friend that still has a 42" plasma that he paid that much for (if I paid that much for anything, I'd still have it too). Now he wants a 100+" display (but not a projector), so I'll have to show him these have become available, and not just through an installer who will charge 15% of the price just to hook it up.

Dakkon, I think anything with a built-in tuner has to have speakers.

There's no reason not to use these types of devices for HT that I'm aware of. Ray3 was really bullish on the commercial plasmas a few years back.

For most of us here, we would only need a display.. No tuner or speakers... I thought that manufactures had pretty much stopped manufacturing "display only" devices...

I am glad that mark posted this, as this is the product that i would most like to purchase. not the 50k$ one though wink
