To the OP, I would get the TV or a high priced hooker(s) as someone else mentioned.

The clear lake one is the best imo. They are all great to walk around in...lots of eye candy to see. As far as buying something at Frys, its a luxury these days if you need it "now - in hand". Otherwise, the internet and Directron still beats everyone's pricing if you can afford to wait for it to be shipped.

Frys is 2-3x the size of Best Buy.

The very first response reminded you that it's iNput not imput.

Sorry couldn't help myself... I know I know, I'm a jackass.

I have to disagree with this. I'm nothing special on a bike, but I could feel a difference between stock and marchesini. Mainly going back to stock from the marchesini wheels. The feeling the stock wheels gave during any mid turn adjustments was easy to notice.

Not saying they'll make anyone faster or not, but there is a difference.


All this said, I have seen the Marchesini wheels marked WAY down the past week or so. New pricing for what I sold my old used ones for. Not sure who all can get that pricing, but give Motorcycles Unlimited a call and ask. Marchesini is said to be coming out with some new wheel designs in 2010 as well.

After having the Marchesini's in the past and enjoying a good 52' LCD TV, I vote that you go with the TV as well.

Best Buy is offering some good deals on the Samsung 55" LED TV right now. Pricing that's over a $1,000 below initial retail pricing.

agreed(except the sony part), unless you're in a situation where you need the shallow mounting depth (95% of all flat screens aren't wall mounted), an LED backlit LCD TV is just adding cost, not performance. Plasma is still the winner when it comes to picture quality, black levels, and size/dollar. Only thing LCD/LED has over plasma is energy comsumption and heat output. My TV costs nearly 800/dollars a year to operate, and will literally heat up the room it's in by nearly 2 degrees. you can feel the heat coming off the panel from 3ft away.

SAMSUNG FTW.
