New TV

Here’s a pic of my living room with an upgraded TV. While the last TV I got was large, it felt a little too small for this room. This new one fits much better and is easier on the eyes.

If you’re wondering where the old TV is, I gave it to my dad as a christmas gift. This new LED is huge, thin and makes bluray look pretty spectacular.


It looks pretty good on the stand… but I’m starting to wonder if I should mount it to the wall for the full effect. Thoughts?

  1. trust me on this: you raise it up too high your neck’s gonna destroy you after a while…otherwise, it looks great…size and brand of the TV? how’s your surround system? i’m looking into getting one, finally…

  2. @martin:disqus Heya, thanks man… I appreciate it! I’m finally starting to upgrade some stuff in the home. 🙂

     @1c549f9c981bff49f7628b6980f67f33:disqus It’s a 70″ LED Sharp Aquos. I had a 52″ before, and when you see them side by side, the new TV totally dwarfs it. There’s an 80″ LED Sharp Aquos that’s f’n bad ass, but was out of my price range. I managed to get this one through a holiday cyber-sale. I have an old plug and play sony 5.1 dvd player. It definitely has better sound than the stock TV, but isn’t true surround since I’m connecting it with basic RCA cables and not HDMI. I’m planning to get either an Onkyo or Yamaha receiver sometime this year, and then upgrade the speakers one by one.

    I recommend the 70″ LED if you have the space. If it’s out of your price range, there are certainly awesome deals for 60″ screens. I saw an open box 60″ LED Westinghouse at Best Buy for $850. The image was pretty good too.

    • word…in this apartment we got a 47″ 120Hz LG which is about 5″ larger than the recommended size according to distance lol once i have an actual house with a larger living room i’ll try to go larger…and if im super rich by then, im gonna get a TV the size my wall like barney in how i met your mother

        • @92ba3687b1f30c6a3cc9cba21a62a81d:disqus Yah! definitely send me a pic of your new entertainment setup. I really liked what you did with your room when you lived with me. It was sexy!
