    Vibration/boomy bass and assorted uses for old mouse pads

    Hey! I put rubber feet on the bottom of a flower arrangement we got for our glossy dining room table to keep it from scratching the table. Do you guy's think these feet might actually make the flowers look better too?! Woohoo! I've got to let the ladies down at Michael's know about this tweak!

    Don't know if this has been mentioned, but my local Sam's has the Samsung HDTV receiver for $289. Seems pretty cheap to me

    AR Performance Series vs Monster Component Cables

    BuffaloCables are WAY better than RhinoCables! Stay away from CheetahCables though. They made all my music play too fast You could look at BestCables too, but they aren't as good as BetterCables, which are...um...better. I've listened to WorseCables, which are decent, but there is something I...

    *** Official "THE HULK" Discussion Thread

    It's hard to describe, but I'll try based on my poor memory - the music had a drum beat that was sort of quasi-military marching band quality to it. Like that leading up to the National Anthem as the President arrived at the football stadium in Sum of All Fears. It has an effect that lends...

    *** Official "THE HULK" Review Thread

    I liked HULK very much! Yes, the film should have been sped up a little, and yes there are several "false endings" which should have been cut and put as extras on the DVD, but overall, I was satisfied No one else in my party liked it too much, but I don't care. They liked Spiderman, which I...

    As far as Bruce winding up in the jungle, it also makes perfect sense. He was a god hearted doctor that is seeking anonymity (sp?) He could "do good" in a place where is as least likely to be found out. Oh yeah, another thing I liked about the film was the middle-eastern sounding music in...

    *** Official "THE HULK" Discussion Thread

    Oh yeah, I too had a horrible theater experience. We took our kids, who kept still and quiet. I had to move over one seat due to one child bumping my chair with his shoes, and was constantly asking questions or making statement throughout the film. Another SMALL child kept making HULK grunts and...

    I liked it! I dislike most films actually. I didn't like Spiderman, or the two (so far) SW prequels, as you can see in my sig. As much as I liked it, I would have changed several things. As others have said, it did see to end at one point only to go on and on, etc. I would have liked to either...

    I've heard of people removing the hinge assembly and gluing the door to the front edge of the tray.

    Early thoughts on the Panny PT-L200u LCD FP

    I may be wrong, but I'm not alone in thinking that there are a very few number of ZERO dead pixel LCD projectors out there. My Z1 had a single dead blue pixel (blue dot on black background). I sent it to Sanyo for repair. When I received it back I gave it a quick once over and saw no dead...

    Early thoughts on the Panny PT-L200u LCD FP

    I hate to even bring it up, but Ron-P, have you looked for dead pixels or panel misalignments? Surely it has to have at least 1 dead pixel?

    New Sony 34" KV34HS510 Widescreen $1,999.99

    Phosphors on the TV screen (the tiny spots that glows when the electrons strike them) "bloom" or increase in size as you turn up CONTRAST (white level). The beam spot must be TINY on a CRT TV of the size spoken of here to achieve full HD resolution. So tiny in fact that it can't be asked to glow...

    New Sony 34" KV34HS510 Widescreen $1,999.99

    Well, there you have it! If Sony's press release says it, it must be true The proof is in the pudding. I'd like to see an un-biased review of the sets actual resolution and at what LOW contrast setting (too dim for real world viewing would be my guess) is required to benifit from Sony's...
