Sup my sexy people

Considering the Wii has to be plugged in to a sexy TV in order to be played, I thought it was appropriate to ask for your sexy opinions on what TV is best for the Wii/gaming in general.

What brand is it? LCD/Plasma? Full HD?
How big are yours? ;) Bigger is better? ;)

I just have my 19" TFT Monitor for the Wii :(
Because I don't want to buy a expensive TV just to play Wii. (I hate watching TV so it would be a waste of money to buy a TV)
But maybe I'll get a 22" TFT soon :D

Probably getting a Vita with LBP soon...

Mine is a flat screen (not flat panel) standard definition CRT, and right now I wouldn't trade it for anything. It has the best picture you can possibly get in standard def, and I'm not interested in upgrading to HD yet for various reasons. VC games look better on this TV than you'll see them anywhere; no pixellation, but perfect color depth, contrast, etc, and of course no need for "upscaling" or the slight input delays that often leads to.

42" Philips plasma: the cheapest plasma I could get at the time (over 2 years ago now). It's capable of 1080i, but I don't use any HD sources, just my DVD player and Wiis via component. If I could have gotten a widescreen flat tube TV I would have, but by the time my old widescreen Sanyo died that wasn't the case, hence cheap plasma!

Getting DVD Video Essentials for properly calibrating your TV is a must, so if you don't have something similar pick it up; it can help you make the most of a lower-end telly.

I bet it's nice to watch your fishing programs in such clarity.

Toshiba 32" CRT. I agree with warioswoods in that it's the best way to view std def images. I'm perfectly happy with it at the moment. I actually bought a 32" LCD but std def stuff just looked so s**t I sent it back. I would like a projector at some point but that would be for my films :-).

What's this bit for again?

@warioswoods: No fishing shows (or games for that matter) for me, thanks. ;-) But I will give and take an occasional beating from my "little" bro in Wii Sports Boxing:

Well, I was going to brag about my set until Vendetta's 60-inch set popped up. Now I'm stuck with T.V envy.

Sorry Fox. That's how I felt after you dropped the S&W 500 on me though. ;)
Don't hold out on us, brother - what's your TV?

I got a 22" HD-Ready Philips LCD television. The 22PFL3403/10. I liked my old CRT tv. It was big, it showed ok images but it was only 50 Hz and had only 1 SCART connector which wasn't a very strong one. Smallest movement (or no movement at all) and the audio fell away or the screen blinked when I started a new race in Mario Kart or a new game in Dr. Mario. So I had to look for a new one and since they only made LCD screens nowadays. I got this one.

I have to say, it took some time for me to get used to it. SD images from analog tv looked nowhere as sharp as on the old tv. I'm thinking about getting a digital box. And playing on the Wii looked terrible. So many jaggies it made some games almost unplayable (SMG, RE4). But appearently I sat to close to the screen (-1 meter). When I sit a bit further, it looks much, much better.

When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.

Fair enough, looks like we stand at 1 to 1 on bragging rights. :)

I've got a Samsung 48 inch 1080P LCD flatscreen. The exact model name escapes me at the moment, but my Xbox 360 sure looks sweet with it.

40in 720p Samsung flatscreen in the living room with a PS3 for BluRay ONLY

36in 720p Sony flatscreen in my GameRoom for my personal gaming :D PS3 hooked up there as well

20in 1080p Samsung flatscreen in my Bedroom for watching TV in bed and Retro Gaming....SNES, Sega, PSX

No Complaints. I find the >40in TVs HDMI look better under 40in in my opinion thats why I went with a 36in for gaming room and I think it looks amazing.
