Too freaking expensive, and DRM'ed to hell to boot.

I think I'll pass on it and stay with my nice-looking 21'' TV set and DVD players, thankyouverymuch.
I can sure as hell see a huge difference sitting 8 feet away from my 32" 1080i TV.

You're really in no place to comment unless you've seen HD content for yourself.
