Many people buy a HDTV and hook it to a SD analog source using a S-video or composite cable! Of course the picture is NOT going to be as good as it was in the store! So they bring it back.
Just make sure you can return it if there is a problem. John
has anyone ever purchased or would consider purchasing an HDTV that the store now calls an open item. i'm noticing at some BB and CC stores quite a few HDTV returns. if you ask a salesperson most of the time they tell you the tv was returned because the customer was unhappy that the picture of the hdtv wasn't like the picture at the store, or at least thats what i'm getting from some sales folks.
there's a CC warehouse here that sells quite a few of these open item hdtvs. if you have bought one, hows the tv working out for you? or have you had a bad experience with one of these tvs? would you consider buying one, why, why not?
