Purchasing a tv over the weekend

12 posts in this topic

:bingo: So, finally ... it's been kinda long over-due ... wanted to pick up a tv set that'll last me a good 5 years at least, or doesn't get completely outdated anytime soon.

HELP - I need to know if this tv will have the provision for me to connect my laptop to it, so I can watch anime on it :teethglint:, or browse the internet :glasses:, etc. watch hentai in HD :nosebleed:, etc. etc.

I'm going over to Best Buy tomorrow most probably :sparkle:. Thanks in advance!

Also, what're the cables that I'd need to connect the laptop to the tv called? Eppy, we connected the laptop to the tv in the hotel room at Otakon, will it work on this Sony?


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

Just because I'm busy mowing the lawn and hoping I'll find some spare change, doesn't mean I can't hear you." - Link

It should allow you to hook the compy up to it, almost all HDTV's allow you to. Hell my new HDTV allows me to (though I have no real reason to). Just bought a 26" Flat Screen, such a beautiful TV.

Thanks senpai, and Strider~kun ^_^

Does brand matter at all? I realize how marginally expensive the Sony is versus others. Your thoughts?

No matter what you get make sure you get a warranty and some kind of insurance just in case it brakes or doesn't work right.

I have a Sanyo but as goku pointed out get a warranty on it just in case anything happens. A lot of people I know seem to favor the Vizio brand, I wanted one as my roommate has one and it's got an awesome picture but my Sanyo puts out a damn nice picture itself so I have no complaints but yea I know Phillips is up there as one of the top recommended brands.

vizio is good for price, but generally doesn't compare picture-wize to any of the other brands. samsung is the best brand out there right now as far as TVs go, but even Sharp has a nice picture.

Nope, didn't. I landed up feeling guilty of spending all that cash on myself ... I was hoping for my tax refund to cover the expense. Instead, I got my tax refund, and sent it back home to clear off a debt or two, and for part paying for my uncle's bypass/ open heart surgery.

I'm hoping to see a flat screen dumped on the street, on trash day X'D.

EDIT: Zomg - nice deal off TigerDirect gives you 200$s off on a 40 inch bringing the price down to $800.00, and 500$s off on a 46 inch bringing the price down to $1000.00 - both Sony 1080dp HDs.
