    I roll with two TVs next to each other. That way I can play Xbox while watch TV. And in the fall have two football games rolling at once.


    Can you tell I am single lol

    I honestly wouldn't get too overly concerned with specs. I mean sure they make a difference to varying degrees. But if you're just needing a small-medium-sized bedroom TV mainly for playing games then pretty much any HDTV in your price range should do the trick. Just avoid the garbage brands (my opinion, YMMV).

    Also, the general consensus out there is that you need to get into the 40"-ish range before the benefits of 1080p even become noticeable. I've never tested it myself but I've read that on several movie/AV sites over the years.

    If you can swing that Vizio LED for $195 I'd say go for that. I haven't been in the market for a TV in awhile but that sounds like a pretty good deal. Just make sure you buy from a reputable company.

    A girlfriend once tried to tell me "That will have to change" when she saw them. We were not even living together or anything. I was a little annoyed. My response was:

    "It was like that before you. And it will be like that after you."

    She did not last long.

    I haven't tried for the side-by-side TVs. I'm just glad she doesn't complain about the old school NES I leave hooked up at all times in our living room. I figure I better not push it.

    See this is why women are terrible creatures, they dont want 2 TV together, logic says thats why more than half the women in the world aren't married.
