Yesterday was the first time that I have had one of my legendary parties since I bought my Z3. Things were going along as planned when someone mentioned, "Hey we have to watch the Preakness!". I am not one for horse racing but I would me more than happy to accommodate my guests. Honestly I didn't even know it was taking place. So I looked it up on the web and found out it was in HD on NBC! At around 5:05 we all piled down to the StrangeAttitude Cinema and watched the race in 100" HDTV Pleasure. No one could believe the quality of the picture. Here are some comments: "Wow, that's what HD is supposed to look like." "Man look at the blue color!" and my personal favorite, "Hey Honey! Come down here and look at this!" Then the questions started. How much? Where did you buy? Is it better than a RPTV? That last question was easy to answer since i just fired up my 65" Mitsu and had them compare the image for themselves. I then explained the +/-s of the technologies. All in all, everyone was AMAZED with the Z3 and they all want to buy one. This is so fun. One more thing. Have you watched the IMAX version of Apollo 13? Wow that is a great looking flick.
