    Love to own a HDTV but I rather save some money for traveling instead. Want to go to Australia and Cuba this summer :)

    Yes i do have my 360 connected to a (budget) 27" hdtv made by Baier.Certainly not one of the greatest hdtv's on the market.But being on a budget is the bigger factor.

    If cash was not the main problem i would love a minimum size of 32" made by samsung.Sweet looking tv's imo.

    To be honest I don't see the point in owning a next gen system other than the Wii if you don't have a HDTV.

    The only reason why I bought the 360 is because I had just got a nice 50" DLP HDTV! If I did not have any I would have just stuck with the xbox.

    Didnt have much say in the matter to be honest. My year old 32 inch Sony TV only supported 50hz and 100hz not the necessary 60hz, lead to a lot of 360 games not even loading, the biggest and deciding game being oblivion. Gave the TV to my mum and dad and opted for the afore mentioned Samsung 32".

    My 360 is connected to my 24" Dell. However, cable is already hooked up to my 65" Mitsubishi for HD DVD movie viewing. There is also the 32" LCD in my bedroom but I like having it in my "gaming area".

    Good stuff :p

    Monte No.2 is one of my favorite, smooooooooth and it's was my first.

    A friend of mine use to live there and his parent still live there. He knows the place really well and planning to do a long bike riding, then have some 23 lobstar for $4 US.

    Plus he knows somebody who grow leaves for cigar and wrap cigars, very good quality. I forgot his name but he was on Aficionado Magazine, he was the top 5 cigar wrapper and I like to meet him :cool:

    I don't own a gaming consol as yet, but I finally got my first HDTV. And because of this purchase, I will be buying a PS3 very soon.

    I wouldn't get a HD Capible console and run it on a standard TV.

    I've seen the comparisons, and you really need to have a HD TV to genuinly take advantage of the graphics

    Well, because I can't afford it. Saving up for tattoos and paying my way through college.

    I voted yes, because when I can get a hold of it, I do game on an HDTV, but mostly I'm running on a standard TV via component.

    PS3 and a LCD. My 24´ computer LCD has HDMI but i haven´t tried it there since it´s great to have it connected to my living room bigger LCD. Too big for PC but perfect for PS3 :D
