PostSubject: FINALLY!!!!!   April 18th 2008, 11:37

After my years of waiting....of hoping.....my time has come! Today I officially have become the owner of my very own HDTV!!!!!!!!!

You all may know I was after the 32'' Samsung 720p which cost $899. Well, this week we saw another HDTV on sale...a better HDTV....

So now I am the proud owner of....




The 32'' 1080p Sharp Aquos with 10,000:1 Contrast Ratio and 2 HDMI ports!!!!!!!! I am SOOOOOO EXITED!!! yesterday I went out and bought a $60 Sony HDMI cable made with PS3 gaming in mind. It has triple layered gold platings, faster speed, all kinds of cool stuff.

I am going into work for 3 hours soon, but at 5:45pm EST when I get back I am setting it up and FINALLY EXPERIENCING THE WONDERS OF HD!!!!! I am going from a crappy 20 year old standard TV to a brand spankin new 1080p HDTV!!! I can't wait!!!!!!!

Jason, I finally inderstand what you meant by "even the XMB will look great in 1080p".

I connected everything, put it on the HDMI game mode I have my PS3 on, and turned my PS3 on. It said "HDMI detected, would you like to set as default imput?" I chose yes. It said "HDTV detected. 1080p max resolution. Would you like to set default resolution to 1080p?" I said yes.

XMB came up and my jaw just dropped. Absolutely amazing. I played a couple rounds of RSV2 and was in total awe, Oblivion looked amazing. I plan on testing out CoD4 and Warhawk later tonight before going back on my Oblivion binge.

1080P FTW!!!!!

Warhawk looks amazing...I can't believe how good that game looks. I thought Broken Mirror was free, I just can't bring myself to spend $8 on something I will rarely ever play.

CoD4 can support 1080p, but for some reason whenever I go into CoD4 it reverts back to 720p. I don't know why.

Anyway, my eyes are tired from absorbing high definition awesomeness for the past 5 hours. I'll be on in the morning.

gotta go into your ps3 settings, in the display part, and turn off everything but 1080 on the lil menu there
thats the only way you can play cod4 in 1080p....so just think, you havnent even seen what
is arguably the best looking game ever on your new tv in full high def yet, its pretty tight as far
as nerd shit goes lol j\k

Yeah, but I like how my HDTV automatically reverts back to 720p for most games when they don't have 1080p. Its just CoD4 that reverts when it doesn't need to. I am afraid that if I only check 1080p it wont auto-revert.

thats true man, its a cod4 glitch
games will automatically play on the highest res possible
unless its cod4 or if you have a higher than supported
res selected and not the lower ones too

Only problem is if you play some ps1/ps2 games they will look extra grainy because of the extented Resolution.

i know you didn't get the aquos for that price or less, it's an expensive beast but worth every penny.

as for the 1080p no your ps3 won't auto revert after turning the other display settings offbut, just go back to the display menyu and open them again after done playing cod4. it's an easy fix.

Actually form, the reason why I bought the Aquos is because the price. It was $1399.99, an =d it went on a 2 day sale of $828.

Yeah, that much. So I rushed out and bought it...there were only 4 left by the time I got to the store.

Yeah it pretty much is a beast, 1080p is amazing. I love it.
