Have a brand new in the box LG 47" 1080p LCD HDTV... info below. $1799 usually, will sell for $1500! (obo)

FULL HD 1080p RESOLUTION
Displays HDTV programs in full 1920 x 1080p resolution for a more detailed picture.

INTELLIGENT SENSOR
Unlike other sensors which can only sense brightness of ambient light, LG`s “Intelligent Sensor" uses 4,096 sensing steps to evaluate its surroundings. Using a sophisticated algorithm, the LG processes picture quality elements including brightness, contrast, color, sharpness and white balance. The result is a picture optimized for it`s surroundings, more pleasing to watch and which can also save up to 50% in power consumption.

AV MODE
The AV Mode optimizes the picture into Cinema, Sports, and game Mode according to the video and audio content. The viewer has the ability to quickly choose the correct mode for the picture they are viewing.

CLEAR VOICE TECHNOLOGY
Automatically enhances and amplifies the sound of human voice frequency range to help keep dialogue audible when background noise swells.

ISFccc
This TV contains the detailed calibrations necessary for professional certification by the Imaging Science Foundation. The resulting ISF “day" and “night" modes will then be accessible by the user to experience the best their LG HDTV has to offer.

Put it on the back of the FJR. Wire a rear mounted cam to it. Let tailgaters tailgate the front of their own car.

(The thing only weighs 100#. That's less than the average passenger and the FU effect will be priceless.)

Oh, don't use regular cheap bungees! :lmao:

I have to chime in on this one. LCD contrast ratio, image quality, transition speed sucks. For same $$ one can get a 50" DLP TV using LED's instead of a lamp. The contrast ratio, clarity, image quality is unmatched. Transition speed is so fast that the same TV is used for 3D movies! For gaming 2 players can play and only see their part of the screen!

F1, you are not specifically saying the specs on THIS unit sucks, you are saying that LCD vs DLP sucks. Not like the comparison is really apples to apples, but ok. And "sucks" is pretty darn relative these days.

Yea, yea, yea.

Well, as an owner of BOTH an 1125r and an R1, I'm here to tell you the Buell is way, way far ahead of the R1.

Come ride it, and you will see...

Even the old R1 to a new Buell, the R1 is better. Jim just keeps practicing his sales skills on us. :lmao: The only thing the R1 won't do well is provide a comfortable ride for miles on relatively straight pavement cause it's a pure sportbike! :p

2008 Buell. Americans are given a 5 year technology grace period, right? :)

The issue with the R1 for me is keeping my weight off the bars. I just can't get positioned on the bike correctly, and the tank is incredibly difficult to hold with the knees. That and the turn is really slow, but a 180 rear tire should help that.

I'm going to try come convertibars clip ons and adjust for a couple inches back, about an inch higher, and a much flatter/straight bar position. And, I'm going to try a different seat that should reduce the major forward slant of the stock seat.

The only less-than-posititve feedback I've gotten is from Ben G. He wasn't down on it, but didn't care for the being "over the front wheel" if I recall.

Give it a try, bud. It makes you feel in control and very confident like no other bike I've been on.

He's getting a smokin' deal on that 14. The 14 is a totally different bike than the 1125r. (And, a great bike, too! I like 'em a lot!)

The Harley dealer I bought my 1125r from brought up the subject of selling for them when I mentioned I was out of work this last go around.

So, being curious, I asked what a good sales guy would bring home.

It's about half of what one can expect to make in the software business. Yea, it would be nice to be around bikes 100% of the time. But, yea, the reality is the typical Buell *other* than the 1125r spends 100+ days in inventory. How's one gonna make a living trying to sell *that*? I'd be slingin' chrome just to eat!

So, don't worry about me selling you anything when it comes to bikes. But watch out if you end up in the market for any enterprise business process management software. :)

Did they fix the color-wheel/rainbow problem on DLP's yet??
What about thickness... How thin can DLPs be??

The rainbow effect is eliminated by lamp systems using the high RPM color wheel and Brilliant Color (R) invention (been in production for over 4 years must be reading very old reviews). LED system uses RGB light sources, lamp systems use white light that needs to be split into RGB and more color components by a color wheel. The thickness is just like human thickness, I say by the time you loose 50 lbs DLP will be thinner than LCD :D

For the general public, I work as an engineer at DLP :o But even if I worked for Epson (they are the world leader at LCD panels, LG buys it from them) I'd buy DLP just for the image quality superiority. The closest to DLP image quality comparison is by high end Plasma systems, LCD is a distant third.

You just can't hang it on the wall, with it being 15 inches deep
Maybe less time worrying about dog food and more on work, you could create a thinner DLP TV :D

F1
July 7th, 2008, 09:44 PM
Ha, thats why we have choices. If you want to hang it on the wall and dont care about picture quality then by all means go LCD, or if you want to hang it and have good picture then go plasma. If the best picture quality, reliability, speed, capability etc etc are on the menu then my friend you get DLP.

I was in market for one so did tons of research on the subject. DLP is awesome for commercial applications and theater projectors as for my home its a thing of the past due to unit size.

Now the question was plasma or LCD. Plasma has its inherent disadvantage due to its plasma bubble technology. Plasma bubbles tends to fade after couple of years depending on the usage. Other drawback plasma requires darker room if your family room has lot of big windows and light you don't want plasma.

IMO LCD is the way to go with 14hz refresh rate you will hardly tell the difference between high end plasma and high end LCD.

I love Sony's from childhood now Sony stop making Plasma's from 2007 due to above factors and decrease in plasma market share so I went with 52" XBR Bravia LCD. That thing absolutely rocks with HD and Blue-Ray not to mention PS3 graphics.
