New toys
    #2109215 - 11/15/03 04:04 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Well I just got back from HH Greg. I went there to just look at new camcorders. I have three kids and like to make videos of special events and to record parts of there lives. I had an older panisonic camcorder that just records on tape. I wanted one with the viewfinder that folds out. Mind you me and my wife were just going to "look". I ended up buying a $900.00 camcorder that burns DVDs as you record. I also bought a big screen TV for me and my wife and a smaller TV with a DVD and VHS player in it for my kids.
My intentions were to only spend money on lunch, but I blew about ten grand. I didn't have to buy lunch though because the salesman was so stoked he bought us lunch.
I'm not ever going back to an electronics strore.  :crazy2:

Anybody else have a plasma screen and if so how do you like it?  I have heard rumors they don't last long.

I usually spend little money, but now that i'm getting older I figure fuck it.
I have always wanted a big screen so said fuck it. I like sports and movies so I use it frequently.

Which one did you get?

The earlier models/generation had some problems with a high percentage of pixels burning out, but they have improves some.  Almost every plasma screen I have seen, has at least 1 burned out pixel.

They are rated ususally 25,000-30,000 hours.  They will usually degrade as they age, the gas wears out inside of them.

But it is a great picture if you got a good one.

Do you plan on getting HDTV for it?  I just got HDTV for my rear projection Mitsubishi.  I have it tuned perfectly with Ovia, and the saleman I bought it from, (Who knew more about audio/visual equipment than anyone I have ever met) came to the house and atually gave it a some adjustment by fine tuning the projectors manually.
The picture in a high quality rear projection is better than most but the very high end plasma tv's. 

But the difference in between most of them is invisible to the casual observer, and you just can't fucking beat the coolness of a plasma.

Congratulations! :thumbup:

Oh, I meant to expand more on the HDTV.

You really have to get it if you want your money's worth out of the TV.  I was worried that I wouldn't be impressed with it, or not use it, and be mad that I wasted my money.

But I watch it often.  I LOVE Discovery HD theater.  I can sit and watch it for hours in awe of the programs they have on. :laugh:

Definitly going to check out HDTV. :thumbup:
This thing is worlds apart from our old tv.
