I suppose, I’ll look back on this Blog in future years and giggle at this ‘latest technology’, but right now, it’s the best TV AND picture I think I’ve ever seen!!!
At around 2.40, John Lewis arrived with the package. A surprisingly slim box that was easy to open although I don’t reckon we’ll be able to store it anywhere in the house – it’s just too big!!)
The surprise was the weight of the pedestal stand, which seemed to weigh as much as the TV itself. Any way a few minutes later with David’s help, it was in position. A few minutes more and it had tuned itself into all the analogue and satellite (FreeView) channels. FreeView didn’t take long as it couldn’t find a suitable signal – a job for the aerial man tomorrow!!!
Anyway, I hooked up the Sky box and WOW! what a picture!!! Stunning colours and very sharp too (and this ISN’T High Definition).
Ann was late home, but we stayed up and re-watched ‘Gladiator’ starring Russell Crowe – the film seemed even more impressive on a bigger screen.
So, if you’re reading this and thinking ‘should I buy a new TV’, I’d say, buy one like this, you won’t be disappointed!!
For the specification, see my previous Blog on Saturday
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
