Been putting away for this for the longest time! Since I got that little "Insignia" thing, I wanted a set I could actually SEE! The sizes of sets are not like they used to be, because they are rectangular, so you need a bigger set than you had before to even see it. So, I didn't want to go to the high 40s, and certainly not into the 50s, but the really decent ones that are "SMART" seem to start at 46. And I can read the web browser in it! It's a Samsung. New model.
Well, it has 3-D. Don't know the diff. btw "active" or otherwise, but will see. They give you glasses. Picked up Lincoln
, which has all formats - so it can play on any machine, and even has a digital file for one's computer. My first Blu-Ray! I done broke my blu-berry.
Anyway, I already logged in here
on the BIG THING, but didn't post. (I did post on Facebook. Wow!) I watched a Tom Jones video from here, and it went to full screen, and it was amazing! EVERYTHING about it is amazing! But . . . they make you pay extra for EVERYTHING. It comes with this little bluetooth remote, and yet it has a web browser. Found out you can buy a special bluetooth full-size keyboard remote for it, which I did, after they installed it. Also, they needed an extra HDMI cable for the Blu-Ray player. So, with everything, it sure added up. I'll be digging out for a while, but it sure is worth it!
Gosh, my old CRT up there was making crackling noises (the plastic housing) all night long, increasingly, to the point where I could no longer sleep. It was big for a CRT type set. I wanted to go for a smaller set, but if you want the "smart" features, and with this special keyboard remote, there's no choice: gotta go to 46 inches. My eyes need it anyway.
So, I probably won't be surfing on a Kindle Paperwhite at night . . . just reading, nothing else. (The browser isn't a fast browser, but that it's there at all . . . wow!)
I have to download all the "apps" and register it with Amazon Instant Video. So there's much work to do. And I have a busy workday tomorrow, and a root canal on Thursday. So, while I'm eating mashed potatoes on Friday, I have ENTERTAINMENT!!!
Congratulations to me!
Is there anything I don't know about this stuff that I maybe should know?
