But you still want 1080. Many stations DO broadcast 1080i, and the 1080 display is very worthwhile for that. Especially at this picture size, you do not want downscaling to 720 any more. And the extra cost for the electronics of 1080p vs 1080i is not significant. Cheers

I’d just like to say, even though I won’t be wooting this, that the always-five-dollars-shipping is insane for this (though a bit of the S&H is probably worked into the price).

I have read through parts of this thread. Several people have complained that only 2 HDMI ports are not enough. I agree, but if you have more than 2 devices that use HDMI then most likely you can afford a switch. Even better get a surround sound system with a receiver that has more HDMI ports. If you have this TV wall mounted it will be better to have as few cables as possible going to the TV.

Maybe I am not realizing that main stream consumers are now buying 65" TVs. Anyone I know with TVs that big also have surround systems hooked up.

You sound like a very knowledgeable person.

L O L, there’s lots of jealous little weenies who don’t have bigazz 65" TVs popping off in here today. :slight_smile:

In particular after baby boomers start to sell everything they own to live in retirement, starting with stocks.

I wooted this a few minutes ago.

I own a 37" Olevia that I like a lot. The tv will be for our kitchen/great room which is large and will also be about 6’ high, so, the room can hold this size tv.

I am concerned about mounting, but, saw enough here to pull the trigger. I never do warranty’s, but, will probably go for it at the price offered here. Thanks to the community for all the info…

comments from the last time this was wooted:


For some reason, it just makes me happy to read through this and see people who have this TV, even if I can’t afford it. :slight_smile:

I hope that paint dries soon!

Being as Olevia is sponsored by ESPN I’d say it’s pretty good. I have a 32 inch olevia and it is a GREAT tv!!! That price seems a little high though…

Just pulled the trigger and bought one. This looks to be a good deal. I now have to find a professional to wall-mount it. It shouldn’t be too difficult as it spans at least two or three studs in the wall, and the base supposedly comes off which will reduce the weight slightly. If anyone has and insight on this process please share.

Sorry, but that still doesn’t make sense. A 401k down today doesn’t affect today’s purchasing power. If you could affort a big-screen TV in January than you can still afford one today, in September. There’s really no reason to increase your savings today…they are effectively already increased because every dollar invested today is likely to gain much more than a dollar invested last January…back when people were still spending like drunks.

I just purchased the whoppah 65" LCD but forgot to buy the 3yr extended warranty, any advise out there. I have already e-mailed service to see about adding it to my order.

go to squaretrades site and type it in yourself. should work also.

James Madison, the original Mini Me?

Wouldn’t buy any TV that isn’t 1080P +120Hz - the difference is amazing!!!

I guess they start shipping tomorrow. I live in Oklahoma right next door to WOOT in Texas so I’ll probably get mine next week sometime. It’d be nice to see 2 HDMI cables on 2 for Tuesday.

Well, I am the one who hooked it up (Sharp 65" LCD). It is connected via HDMI to a brand new Sony Blu-Ray player playing Cars 2. I have messed with all the settings to no avail. It is simply due to the large pixels on the set. Picture is great 6+ feet away. Any closer and, like I said earlier, it is like looking through a screen door. Also, I don’t understand what it is with large screen LCD televisions and the fact that those dang little kids think that they should be touched all over. Greasy little fingerprints are a royal pain to remove from the screens all the time. Furthermore, whomever decided that using a piano black finish for a TV casing was a good idea obviously never tried to clean it. It is so delicate that if you stare at it too long you will scratch it.

A note to those who like to clean their televisions:

NEVER clean electronics with any ammonia based cleaners. Especially Windex or related glass cleansers. Ammonia can, overtime, destroy electronic circuits. It can also damage the coating on the screens of televisions and computer monitors. Use only cleaners approved for use on tv screens. Also, do not use paper towels on tvs either. They will scratch the screen.
