I watch a lot of stuff on television and also watch a lot of movies on DVD. I don’t know a lot about the newer televisions, but I did know that I eventually wanted one, especially after my mother and step-father got an LCD television a few years ago and I had the chance to watch things on it.
I started looking at the televisions more in the spring of this year. Even though I didn’t know - and still don’t know - a lot about the televisions, I knew that I wanted to get a 1080p one if I was going to spend the money on one. I kept looking and I ended up getting a Vizio 32 inch LCD television. I didn’t need a new television, but since I had the extra money at the time, I decided to splurge. I also decided to get a Blu-ray player, something else I didn’t really need, but I had been wanting.
I’ve had the new television and Blu-ray player for several months and I’m very happy with them. Everything looks wonderful on the television. I’m still amazed at times how good things look. I do watch DVDs with the Blu-ray player, but I have started getting some Blu-rays. Some older DVDs that I’ve watched look better played on the Blu-ray player. I have picked up a few movies on Blu-ray that I already had on DVD, and so far, I’ve been happy with the ones I’ve doubled dipped on. North by Northwest is absolutely amazing on Blu-ray. That is a must own Blu-ray for fans of the movie.
I do think getting a high definition television and Blu-ray player is well worth it for people who love movies.
