Our New Addition
So, there is a big joke about Jeff's birthday presents from me. I always have good ideas that just don't work out. So, I am always telling him that "Well, you were gonna get a really cool _____, but...". For his birthday in January I decided it was time to get him a decent TV. He works so hard and rarely does anything for himself. He is a sports fanatic and it is how he unwinds. I figure the least I can do is let him watch it in HD. :-) So, we went shopping for a TV, but the one rule was that we still wanted it to fit in our entertainment center. As explained in my "anti-shopping" post, the size we wanted was just a tad too big, so we didn't buy one at all. Well, 7 months later, we decided to look again. We finally found one that was a good price and a good TV and it is the smaller size. It is amazing what a difference the clarity is. We watched "Iron Man" on the new TV and really enjoyed it.
So, how about the rest of you? Did you get sucked into society's need for a bigger TV? Is it worth it?
Edited to Add: The TV is a 32 inch and our last was a 27 inch. We had hoped to get a 37 inch, but it was a 1/2 inch too wide to fit in our entertainment center. The 32 inch is great though and I think Jeff is very happy. (He better be!)
