I'm still a skeptic. In fact----the more I watch "high def" television, the more I realize we were bamboozled with that nonsense too. I've seen the sharpest, clearest, newest Samsung products----and in my opinion, they are only marginally better (if at all) than my 12 year old Sony Trinitron 32 inch. What a scam that all was. Converter boxes for surviving TVs----and millions of serviceable television sets in landfills.
What a crock. And frankly, the "movie screen" ratio isn't that great either. I preferred the old format.
