i'm so excited and i just can't hide it!

[Posted by the Occasional Blogger: November3]

TV crapped out last week. We try to turn the sucker on and all we get in return is a loud, annoying buzzing sound.

[Pic of the TV with the boys. Can you guess who's the culprit?]

Normally, I'd be freaking.  Big time.  Who's Jack going to kill next on 24 and does it promise to involve sticking a bamboo up the arse?  Are Bill, Barb, Nicki, and Margene going to get oily and naked on Big Love?  Will Ellen and Patty finally poke each other's eyes out on Damages?  Inquiring Novembers want to know!!

But, I'm not freaking. I no freaky freaky because the mechanical failure of our 46" Samsung DLP means it's time to usher in the age of the 58" Samsung Plasma, which we'll affectionally nickname PN58B860.

Oh, PN58B860, how we will love thee and not just because of thy 3-year in-home warranty!

Watching DLP is like listening to 8-track.  Outdated.  Outmoded.  Outhouse, baby!

My only regret is that the DLP didn't crap out sooner so that we could've watched the Super Bowl on PN58B860.

For those of you who want to follow suit, I read just about every self-proclaimed expert and reviewer review out there.  Here's my summary.  Panasonics start out great, but their blacks fade quickly over time and Panny won't fix it.  Vizio - you get what you pay for.  Pioneer kuro Elite - hands down the best set out there but I want to send my kids to college before we croak.

So where to buy?  Go to Amazon and their link to Buy.com lists for $2177.  No tax and that includes shipping.  You can also snag a 3-year warranty for $139, which is a steal.

I have officially saved you four months of research, my friends.  Join in the PN58B860 revolution and enjoy the finest viewing experience money can buy without mortgaging your chill-renz futures!
