and who's fault is it not to do any research about something they're buying? especially when it comes to big investments. i don't give a f*ck about the general consumer since it consists of mostly idiots and morons who buy's $700 wii bundles. all it takes is a tiny bit of research. 720p is HD enough. 1080p doesn't make much a difference on 37" and below. etc. etc.
