    Sounds like the Panasonic is probably the one out of those two unless there are any better alternatives to them.

    HDTV Help

    The tv would be mostly for watching sports if that helps anyone. Is there a good place to go for review/comparisons for hdtvs?

    HDTV Help

    Nope, but like I said I don't know much about this area. Quality is all I'm interested it. From what I understand even though these can also do 3D they're also really good at 2D. I would be looking at only 1080p and ~$2000 as an upper price cap.

    I know nothing when it comes to the best hdtv. Any advice would be appreciated. I'm looking at these as a start: Samsung PN50C8000 50in C8000 Series Widescreen 3D Plasma TV at Memory Express Computers Panasonic 50in VIERA® VT25 Series 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV at Memory Express Computers as a...

    Notebook/Netbook suggestions

    I'm looking in the $500-$800/900. I'd very much prefer an option closer to 500, the minute the price goes over 1000 it probably isn't worth it. Price probably also rules out any mac option. Battery life is a huge part of my consideration and as a side effect a light device. I want to be able...

    Notebook/Netbook suggestions

    I'm looking for a light notebook/netbook around 13" or less with 5+ hours of battery life. I don't intend to do much more then word process or play anything more demanding then a snes emulator/flash games. I also tend to multitask. I've stumbled across the ASUS UL30A and UL20A as some...

    Need Help with SSDs!

    From what I've been reading you're looking at two questions. How big and how fast? (all within your budget) At around $200 (sale prices) you're looking at indilinx based ssd drives of 60-64GB in size. The current recommended vendor seems to be OCZ for their firmware support. Getting closer...

    LCD Wall Mounts?

    I'm looking to raise my two monitors up off my low desk. I'd like to mount them to the wall and be able to position them just about any possible way (up/down/left/right/rotate). Any help will be appreciated. Is there a preferred vendor? Are there problems to look out for? Does cost match...

    Short curcuited video card

    I vaguely remember pulling some sort of warranty is void sticker off the card to install the Accelero and it's a palit card which from what I've heard complicates things.

    Short curcuited video card

    Thinking about getting this: BestByte.net - Discount Computer Hardware & Reliable Service: Thermal Compounds & Adhesives or Active Tech - Thermal tape But I'm not sure if the stuff is really expensive or sold in large quantity. Anyone know what rls/cs means?

    Short curcuited video card

    The card is definitely broken. I pulled my system apart and tried to boot with just the broken card. Absolutely nothing gets to the monitor. Some background: There are a couple things that made my particular setup more prone to this problem. I'm currently using the Silverstone Raven R01 so...

    Short curcuited video card

    I've been running 2x4850's in crossfire. They're both outfitted with the Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 Rev. 2. Some of the older ram sinks (think something like this) fell off. In the process it seems to have short circuited some parts of the card. It's possible the card isn't dead but I'll leave...

    Replacement mic/earphone setup

    Looks like it's working, not perfectly but it is a lot cheaper then getting a new headset altogether. Thank you Sushi Warrior and 5ILVgeARX.
