Santa was good to me this year and got me an awesome Samsung 23" LCD 720P tv (LNT2342) I originally wanted a much cheaper Olivia branded tv, but my parents got talked into buying me a bigger and much better quality one (thank you employees at Fry's).
Anyway I think its a nice upgrade from my 1980's Zenith 19" TV (as seen below)
And heres what it looks like now =)
But I have a few questions as far as this goes.
1. I know bad pixels can be common among lcd screens, I have not noticed any at all, but I am wondering if dead pixels can occur later along in the TV's life and not just at the begining (if so we might get insurance for it)
2. Does an xbox high def pack really create much of a difference? XBMC looks mediocre via regular composite cables, so I was wondering if a high def pack would be a must have
3. Any special precautions I should take? I hear burnouts can be a problem..
And WOW Xbox 360 looks amazing on it..
Thanks for your help guys, and I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!!
