Been playing games since I was a kid. Mainly portables until recently. Have a PS3, Wii, DS, Mac and own games for all formats. Into all genres, but mainly JRPGs, fighting, and party games. Don't get to play as much as I'd like, but I can throw down with the best of them. Grad school is a huge time sink.
PS3- Mass Effect 2
Wii- Waiting for Skyward Sword
DS- Dragon Quest IX
Mac- Papers for class
iPhone- Angry Birds
I know this might not be the most traditional place to ask for advice, but hey, we're all gamers here and this relates.
I'm in the market for an HDTV. I like LEDs, but wouldn't be opposed to another type if the picture was good. I'm looking to spend about $1500 for the TV. I've heard nothing but good stuff about Samsung, with LG's being a close second. The room I'll be putting it in isn't incredibly huge, but decent sized; the chairs are probably 7-9 feet away from the screen. It's also got large windows behind the chairs, so glare might be an issue.
Anywho, here's where I'd like your input.
1. Is buying from Newegg a viable option? Is there a return policy to speak of?
2. Are the high priced HDMI cables worth it? It seems silly to pay upwards of $80 for a cable.
3. Is there any special heed that needs to be taken for hooking up my PS3, Wii and other systems? I'm sure there's none, but would using a Sony or something result in better preformance from the PS3?
