… I do have one more holiday-worthy deal to put out there.
Amazon has this 32″ Toshiba LCD HDTV at its lowest price ever, right now—just $199. Yes, it’s only 720p, rather than 1080p, but the human eye can’t discern the difference past about six feet away from the screen, and if you’re sitting closer than six feet, stop it, didn’t your mother tell you you’d ruin your eyes that way?
Those of you who’ve been around here for a while know my feeling on televisions: Buy a smaller TV, or a lesser resolution, in a better brand (rather than going no-name brand on something bigger/better). For my money, this is a perfect intersection of trusted brand, decent size, good specs, and great price.
And just like that, two days from now our last old tube television will be leaving the house. I suspect there will be much rejoicing by the teenagers.
