    So yeah, my rather successful friend just IMed me (graduated from UM in 3 years, went directly to work for MS full time...), and said that he's looking to buy a new TV for his condo.

    65", widescreen, HDTV, he already has the HDTV decoder.

    He's open to projectors, as long as the projector+screen total up to the same price as a set would.

    He'd like for it to be around $3K, so yeah, something around there...

    Being 21, I'm not exactly too familiar with sets that high up [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance guys!

    Thanks Vic...I've bought from onecall before, so I know it's a good dealer...as for Toshiba's, I'm aware that they're pretty well regarded these days, so I'm sure they wouldn't be wrong to go with.

    Any recent big screen comparisons/shootouts conducted?
