Vizio 47" LCD TV
OK I know I have been heavily biased toward projectors and away from plasmas. I still don't think a 42" screen is going to give the same HT experience as a 10 foot screen. But we do watch TV too. So I picked up a 47" Vizio LCD flat panel model GV47L.
I hadn't given the whole Plasma vs LCD debate much thought until I was making my buying decision. I have to admit I was drawn in by the price and was prepared to buy the Plasma. But when I saw them side by side I liked the LCD better. I like that the screen has more a a flat finish instead of the shiny surface of the plasma screen. This might make a noticeable difference when watching the TV in a room with windows or lights.
I have actually had the Vizio for several months (so long in fact the price has already dropped). After living with it for a while I think I can really give it a hearty endorsement. This model has 1080P resolution and the picture is stunning. I use a DVR and record Hd programs so I can demo the unit. Planet Earth and Equator are amazing HD shows. It is as if an HDTV salesman commissioned those shows just to sell TVs.
Equipment Review: NHT Super Zero Speakers
It is funny it took me so long to get around to reviewing my little NHT Super Zeros. I figured because they weren't new there wouldn't be that much interest. But these speakers have been around for a while and are widely available.

Low cost system recommendation
I enjoy getting questions on this site. Here is one I recently received:
I found your review on the same TV I just bought. I wanted to know what Surround System you suggest I buy to go with this TV? I look forward to your reply and thank you!
I am glad you found my site. I have a lot of general advice on Home theater stuff. Particularly how to get the most bang for your buck. So check out my articles. But to answer your question I will have to ask you some questions. What is your price range? Are you mainly going to watch movies or TV? What other components do you have (receiver, subwoofer etc.)
I look forward to your reply
Whatever you do, don't run out and buy a Bose system.

Review: Ratchet and Clank PS3 review
The full title is:
Ratchet and Clank:Future: Tools of Destruction
That title may be longer than my review. Not because I don't like the game but because I want to get back to it. I have to say I haven't played any of the other R&C games so I didn't know what to expect. So far I am really enjoying the game. It has a sly sense of humor. The graphics are great and it isn't just doing the same thing over and over.
Also it isn't just a shooter. You can shoot your enemies with a variety of weapons but you also have the Groovitron. It plays a funky beat and the bad guys can't help but dance. Then while they are getting their groove on you scoot on by.
