I don’t like to go off-topic on the blog, but I figured that this would be a good place to get some advice due to the male-oriented readership (or at least male-skewed commentariat).
Here’s the sitch:
My DVD player of almost 10 years died this past week. (Sony, you done good.) My television is a 28″ tube TV going on 12 years old. Because the TV is so old, and because TVs have really advanced beyond where they were even a few years ago, I decided that it might be time to upgrade everything instead of just buying another DVD player to replace the old one. I’ve been researching options for both HDTVs and Blu-Rays and would love to get further opinions.
- I am looking to stay in the 40″-42″ range and not break the bank. (Breaking the bank is what husbands are for. …KIDDING!)
- Picture quality matters – I will notice if something looks flat, pixelated, etc.
- Sound doesn’t have to be top drawer, but I would like it to be robust. Will not be hooking it up to a stereo system.
- I do not have cable and just use OTA signals with an antenna.
If you have any advice/personal experience you would like to share, please do.
