Re: What's your setup like?
My current setup:
PC: Samsung 204B 20" 1600*1200 native resolution.
TV: 51cm Panasonic CRT (no idea what the model is, it belongs to my sister).
DVD: Pioneer DV-393-s, region-free with DivX 5 support.
HD: Not particularly interested in an HD format until the dust settles on the Blu-Ray vs HD-DVD battle. I have plans to buy a PlayStation 3 sometime down the track but that is specifically as a gaming machine. I will purchase a separate set-top unit to play HD media. Even then, I'd want to finish collecting my current back titles before I look at buying in HD.
I'm planning to buy a television at the end of this year. Since I don't really want to purchase another television for ten years or more, I'm going to plug out money on 1080p HD quality then rather than settle for less and have to buy it later. Currently only Sony and Samsung offer 1080p HD televisions in my area, but since 8 months is a long way off, I'm sure more players will enter the market with them.
I'm not too hopeful that the DV-393 will be any good hooked up to a HDTV, so I may go for a DVD player a friend of mine just bought, an Oppo DV-981 with HDMI and HD convert-up capability (I'm actually going to his place tomorrow to see how it looks on his 26" LG LCDTV). Then, after the prices come down on HD disc players and there's a better idea of whether there will be a dominant format, I'll buy a set-top HD player.
Collecting: Kenichi, Bleach, Marimite, Keroro Gunsou
Wishlist: Bakemonogatari, Macross Frontier, Daughter of 20 Faces, Nanoha Strikers, Shana 2nd, Toradora!, Spice & Wolf S2, Index/Railgun, Kimi ni Todoke, Sasameki Koto.
