This nice large plasma was a little grainy upon close inspection.
The rear panel of the Transporter. Hmmm... that first line reminds
all us consumers that truth in advertising is not being enforced
much these days.
This is the perfect size [though it may be too big to fit in our
room] and the picture quality is very good. I want it. Bad. But we
have no walls to put this rear-projection up against. Sucks.
Time to head down to the show for Saturday's
