Remembering The Good Old Analog Television

By: Jim Williams

I know my mom and dad remember when they got their first television back when they were young. I grew up with television, so I don't really 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 clearer; you would be astonished if you haven't ever seen one. The difference between my old set and my HD set is almost like day and night. It's just that good. But, I only purchased one set. Why?

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

Aside from televisions, additional products have arise onto the marketplace that supports the new HD technology, like video recorders. These can be pretty expensive, but if you're the household 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 greatest calibre obtainable to the average person.

To play the HD DVDs you create recordings on, tho', you'll have to have an high definition DVD player. The DVD player you have now will not likely play HD DVDs (although you may have already bought one, so check your DVD player's manual). Some 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 agreeable with HD.

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

Try not to go overboard with the HD equipment, though. Make certain you're going to get the most out of your money and you're really going to use all these new things you're buying or else it's just wasted money. Good fortune finding the equipment that's opportune for you!
