Television

So I bought a new TV. It hasn't arrived yet; it's somewhere between Virginia and New York. I'll put up a real post about it when it gets here and I've had a chance to play with it. It's this one:



That's the 42" 1080p Westinghouse, model LVM-42w2. I had good reasons for choosing it, which I'll get into in my later hands-on post.

I also bought a new stand to go with it - had to, my old stand couldn't accomodate a TV that big. Went with this:



Just built it; looks beautiful. If you can believe it, it's from IKEA. $229. Go ahead, try to find a stand made out of real hardwood, with nine total shelving areas including an open center section (for center speakers), for $229. You can't. This is the best deal out there.

I'll post pics of the setup once it's complete, along with a bunch of commentary on the whole experience. All of your HDTV questions will be answered.

Stay tuned; hopefully less than a week. (Which means really somewhat more than a week.)

About This Blog

This is increasingly not a blog about Alphabet City, New York. I used to live in the East Village and work on Avenue B, but I no longer do. Why don't I change the name if I'm writing about Japan and video games and guitars? Because New Yorkers are well-rounded people with varied interests, and mine have gone increasingly off the rails over the years. And I don't feel like changing the name. I do still write about New York City sometimes.

About Me

My photo

I'm married. I like to travel. I have no kids. I have a house... that I'm bad at maintaining. I used to collect classic video games. I own a lot of musical equipment that far outstrips my ability to use it. When I was younger, I was in a band. I like gadgets, and I'm an Android guy. Someday, I would like to live on a different planet.
