Televisions Have Come A Long Way

Apr 26, 2008
I know my mom and dad recollect when they got their first television back when they were young. I grew up with television, so I don't truly know what it's like to not have one, but I can say I know what it's like to get a brand new HD TV. Just why did I bother with getting a new television? Didn't my old one work just fine? Well, I thought it did, until I bought my new large screen HD TV.

The picture is so much brighter and sharper; you would be amazed if you haven't ever seen one. The difference between my old set and my HD set is virtually like daylight and night. It's just that pleasing. But, I only bought one set. Why?

Well, the principal reason is that at the present, I could only afford one. They're still on the rather expensive side (even tho' prices are steadily descending), so there's really no sense in purchasing one for the entire house if I only catch TV in one room of it, right? Believe me, though, if I had the cash, I'd buy one for every room in my house that has a television.

Aside from TV's, additional products have arise onto the market that supports the new HD technology, like video recorders. These can be pretty costly, but if you're the family holiday record keeper like I am, getting one of these is a outstanding investment. Think about all the old videos that you made with a VHS recorder so long ago. They were grainy and you wish you'd been able to record at a higher quality. Getting an HD camcorder will make sure you get the best quality available to the average individual.

To play the HD DVDs you make recordings on, tho', you'll have to have an high definition DVD player. The DVD player you have now will not likely play high definition DVDs (though you may have already purchased one, so check your DVD player's manual). Many game consoles support playing HD DVDs, but Playstation 3 does not. The Sony console will play the HD format's rival format, Blu-Ray, but is not compatible with HD.

Speaking of game consoles, video games are now coming out in high definition, as well. If you're a gamer, you might want to invest in one of the consoles that has high definition games.

Try not to go overboard with the HD equipment, tho'. Make sure you're going to get the most out of your money and you're truly going to use all these new things you're purchasing or else it's just lost money. Good luck finding the equipment that's right for you!
