My Crash Course In High Definition Television!

By: Jim Williams

My hubby's birthday is coming up soon and I know he has been eyeing a new tv. HDTVs have been out for a little while now so I am sure that is what I will need to buy. I don't know much about HD stuff but I do know the picture is suppose to be extraordinary.

Last month I was over at my friend's house and was admiring the screen on her HDTV. I can understand why everyone is going nuts over them. The HD picture truly is awesome. I went ahead and asked her how much she paid for hers and I nearly fell over.

Of course, hers is the biggest one they make and has everything you can think of. I am not certain if we would ever use half the features she has on hers. So I started searching the Net to find out more about this thing called HD and HDTV.

I found out I didn't need to buy a large tv to get the same benefits. The smaller ones will provide us with the same type of image just at a smaller degree. The smaller ones were much more inexpensive and were still a major upgrade from our old 20".

I also read that I could get HD service from my satellite company and receive many of the HD channels available now. I was starting to get overexcited about my mate's birthday present. I decided to go out to Ultimate Electronics to see what they had available.

I spoke to the floor manager who told me everything I wanted to know about the televisions. I decided to go with a 42" Sony HDTV. I thought it was the perfect size and cost too. I called for delivery for his birthday so he will be surprised and have a new toy to play with on his day.

I didn't really know much about the new technology out for televisions until now. I am so cheerful I took the time to look into it. I think we will spend many weekend nights on the seat watching movies because now we have the theater experience in our own residence.

Really, if you think about it, in the long run we will be saving money because we won't have to go out to the film theatre and pay for those overpriced movie tickets, candy and soda. See, I knew this present would serve more of a meaning than just being a television my husband wanted for his birthday.
