Right, errr, well tough one to explain is this. I've been playing 360 for about errrr 4 months or so. All on an SD tv. A 21" 4:3 aspect Bush jobee with a 3 inch hairline crack in the screen and a severe problem displaying green without it blurring horrendously. I've still been more than impressed with graphics on the 360, except for rather bright, blurry grassy scenes that made me wanna throw up. Now the way to solve the 'green' issue i thought was with an RGB cable rather than the component HD. So i ordered one off the bay for about £6. So far so fish and chips. So i get the cable through and excitedly wap it in. Wow looks good. All the colours are crisp, text is still largely illegble, but ever since i got a 360 i put this down to not having a HDTV, thus ignored it fully. So with itchy feet and money in the bank i thought, "Sod it" and picked up a copy of the AD paper, found a 1yr old 32" Widescreen TV for £80 and thought, "yeah lets go for this". Sure i'd have prefered a nice big LCD but heck i could have this NOW! So off i trundle, into the black heart of deepest darkest Neath some 90miles away. And i find that what i thought was some old knackered widescreen. Was in fact an immaculate silver pure flat telly sporting a marvelous picture, 3 scarts (only ever had TV's with one before lol) and great virtual surround sound. Clearly the elderly folks selling it were unaware of its true value (tho to be fair maybe only £130 ish). Happily me and the missus plonk it in the car and speed off home. Put the heavy bugger upstairs and plug in the 360 with my spangly new RGB......OMFG!!!!! WHAT THE HELL HAVE I BEEN PLAYING ON!!!! Why anyone needs a HDTV is truly beyond me, it just looks stunning, i can read all the text, all the colours are perfect. The wide aspect 16/9 is astonishing and amazing in movies (yes yes i have in fact been living in the dark ages) and i couldnt be happier! Sure i will own a big HD sometime, but at least now i can put that 1k to better use for a while, all the time enjoying crisp brilliant widescreen gaming on my new £80 set. So for any of you out there like me who use an old battered SD TV due to the expense of HD kit, go for a nice widescreen, it's soooooooo good, im in love!
