I’m so excited! We just got word that the new TV that we bought about three weeks ago will be in the store on Friday! Yeah! We can finally pick it up!
I can’t wait!
Our Samsung DLP is dying. I guess I’m lucky that I have a husband that believes me when I tell him something isn’t working or is acting funny … why? Well our TV started acting up about a month ago. Of course the picture only froze and went to black and white pixilation after midnight when my husband was already asleep in bed.
I look up the problem on the internet and discovered that it’s probably the DMD board that’s causing the trouble. Unfortunately that will cost us about a thousand dollars to fix and we’ve already put more than enough money into this TV in the six years that we’ve owned it. So at my word that our TV is dying my husband and I went out and bought a new Plasma TV.
However, if my husband wasn’t sure about the problem our DLP has, he’s sure of it now. At about 7:30 this evening the TV screen froze and my husband finally got to see the problem himself.
Anyway … we hope to pick up our TV on Friday evening – or Saturday morning. It all depends on our friend with a truck.
Once we get the new TV I’m going to have fun playing with it. It’s a very thin Plasma (a Samsung 8 series) and it comes with all the bells and whistles. I believe it even has built in wifi. If it does great, because we have a network set up with our Linksys router. Who knows, maybe next week I’ll be typing out these posts using my new TV as a monitor? LOL
Do you have a Plasma? We thought about getting an LCD but we really liked the picture quality of the Plasma and they apparently last as long as LCD’s so as far as I can tell it comes down to a matter of preference and of course how bright the room that you’ll be putting the TV in is. Our living room is on the north side of the house and it’s never very bright so we think the plasma will be fine.
