I totally agree. I am (A)
(B), but also (C) - a sucker for a new gadget...
For my set up, this TV is just right. I had a 50" Pioneer PDP but to get this picture (21:9) by enlarging the TV I would have to go up 60"-65" which is just too domineering in my size room 24' x 15' - in my opinion.
And without upsetting too many people, unless you have a dedicated cinema room with a fixed screen, I think projectors and drop down screens look a bit tacky. If you do have a dedicated room then it looks awesome and works very well.
I like the look of a good quality TV and so this was a great toy to buy for the moment....
.... until something new comes along!
