I am Ready for de HD…

17 08 2007

After a few teething troubles, all is well in my living room. John Lewis wouldn’t match the 40″ D3000 Bravia, so I opted for the cheaper 32″ which they were happy to match with Empire Direct and their Trafford store, who were also doing it for £799. It arrived last night, along with my sky viewing card. My original viewing card was lost in the post, so it all seemed to come together at about 10.20pm last night. Channels were activated a few minutes later, and I was looking at Nathan Petrelli’s fine nose hairs about an hour after that. I’m in HD land people, and there is no room for facial blemishes… If you want an example of how *not* to buy a TV, or any electrical equipment, watch the fonejacker clip after the jump..

Hypocrite

6 08 2007

Yea I said it, I am. After lauding the future of TV as the via an Ethernet cable or a wi-fi signal, I did the unthinkable last week and ordered Sky HD to celebrate some great news I received. To top it off I called John Lewis to get them to pricematch a 40″ Bravia, something to dominate my living room.

After picking up a laptop and seeing how easy it was to hook it up to the LCD and watch Bittorrent goodness, I decided to go large, as a McDonalds customer would say. If John Lewis accept my pricematch, I’ll report back and tell you all how the world looks in 1080p!

Well my new TV arrived today, a 26″ Sony bravia LCD. But you don’t have Sky HD or Telewest TV Drive, I hear you cry! What’s the point? You are quite right, I won’t be lining the pockets of Rupert Murdoch or Richard Branson to view slightly clearer pictures, but we all know there are other ways to get high definition content.

My New TV…

11 01 2007

Well it’s so new, it is sitting in the factory. That’s right, I haven’t bought one yet. I’ve narrowed my choice down to four. remember this TV is for a bedroom, so I don’t need any 42″, 1080p playing, 3 HDMI input sporting monster. Just a flat-screen to ease me in and out of my slumber, and create some new space in my room vacated by the CRT monster that took up half a wall.
