HD...who cares?

Maybe I'm jaded because I used to work in television, and I've seen enough of the eye-crack to last me a lifetime, but now that HD is finally becoming a mainstream, "guy at Future Shop is clueless but he'll see you the most expensive HD set they have" phenomenon, I couldn't care less.

It might have something to do with the fact that I barely watch anything other than news. Or maybe it's that I find it easier and more convenient to just download the few shows I do enjoy and watch them on my laptop while I'm busy with something else. In fact, just vegging out tends to get on my nerves.

The other thing that keeps me from moving to HD is the cost factor. HD sets are cheaper than they've ever been, but I just can't bring myself to spend good money on a television set. It just feels...wrong, somehow. :)

But I'm sure I'm in the minority; plenty of people like to coccoon in a media nest and get bathed by the warm rays of constant drivel, but I ain't one of them.

Xbox 360. All HD.

'nuff said. ;)

I couldn't care less about HD television, but HD movies would be nice. And HD games will rock.

I made the plunge almost two years ago and there is no turning back for me. Movies look better than in theatres and primetime shows look incredible. Too bad not all programming is available yet. DVD looks soft compared to HD. Kinda live LD vs DVD. For me the cost is worth it..

Yeah, I agree it looks better, but that just means cleaner torrents for me. :)
