Family,

Our New Old-School TV

Yes, we finally purchased our first T.V. at the Lombardi household. Our previous television was a hand-me-down from my parents. It was a Mitsubishi 28inch tube television from the 80’s—-that’s over 20 years of use! Occasionally it would show strange colors and then minutes later return to normal. It was about time that T.V. was retired.

Our new T.V. is actually used; a 5-year old Sony tube television. I know what you are thinking—-a tube television! Why would I go out and buy another tube television?! Well, firstly, it was cheap; and secondly, it is one of the best and last tube televisions every made by Sony—-34 inches of HDTV capable of high resolution 1080i with an HDMI input. I found it for $300 through Craigslist from a man who originally paid $2,200; and perhaps we’ll get a good 15 years of use out of it! wink

The color is incredibly rich and vibrant and unlike LCD’s the viewing angle is a true 180 degrees; you can sit on any side of the room and see the screen clearly without any image wash. The darks are pitch black and the brights seem to be bursting out of the screen; a video of ships on the dark sea, with the stern light seeming to explode with light on the screen—-truly incredible. Come on over and watch some old technology with us!
