9 in 2009 - Get a New TV!


I just brought a new TV. It's been a long time coming and believe me I have loved my dear lil old 13" TV for many years. But the time has come and I went a little crazy going wit a 40" flatscreen. I don't understand all the features and need to figure out how to tone down those reds but it's nice to read subtitles in wide screen again! I went with a Toshiba 40" 1080p LCD HDTV (40RV525U). And, as a bonus this completes one of my New Year's Resolutions on my 9 in 2009.

The box for the new one took up almost all my floor space in my kitchen:

Assembly was easy but lifting that sucker to place on a shoulder high surface was not!
Check out the comparison pics!

Your own theater! That is one sexy screen. You deserve it. And, all the movies you watch are now soooo excited to show off for you, I just know it.

This post totally rocks! We're thinking of getting the same size TV. I love that you went from tiny box to your own home movie theatre.
