    It doesnt mean much just yet, its way overpriced. But it will take off in a big way soonish.

    In a word "Yes"!

    With Blu ray/HD-DVD nearly upon us :rolleyes: and Sky HD just being launched, to buy a non compatable set would not really be a wise move.

    The first question we need to know..Is what size TV are you thinking or looking at getting ????

    HD is really a waste of money on anything below 32"..
    The bigger the screen is,,the more you get from HD.

    In fairness how many non-HD screens at 32" are there given the CRT's are being pushed aside?

    if there are any there is likely to be very little difference in price for moving up to HD.
