Need Advice on New TV

I'm looking for around a 50 inch tv for home theater and HDTV
watching.  Costco has an RCA SCENIUM 50" DLP HDTV and Stand for
$1,499US.  Pardon my ignorance, but is this a good buy?  It says the
resolution is 1280x720.  We have a smallish living room and will view
at about 10 feet.  Does this seem adequate? Any advice would be
greatly appreciated as I'd like to get it set up for this weekend.

Regards,
Lou.

that doesn't seem like a bad buy at all. have you seen the TV playing
anything? Personally, I could say "this is the Best TV on the market" but if
you think it looks horrable, it doesn't matter what I say. that being said
I've never seen this TV, but a DLP with the stand for 1500 seems pretty
good.

I too sit about 10 feet from my TV. It's a 46" Samsung DLP and it's

plenty big. A 50" would be even better.



Make sure the RCA has the inputs you want. Mine has both DVI and HDMI

and a VGA input which allows me to use it as a monitor for my computer.

Also, does it have a build in HD tuner? Is that a requirement for you?

Does it have a cable card slot? Is that a requirement for you? And like

Dr. Nick says it's your eyes. If it looks good to you it IS good. Plus,

Costco has a great return policy - especially compared to BB or CC.

Thanks for all the input.  Yes, it has a cable card, so I'll be there
when they open in the morning.  I would image it has RCA/S-vid, etc.,
but I'll check to be sure.

Thanks very much,
Lou
