Which TV is in your living room?

Which TV is in your living room?




All that discussion last month about the Ilumina got me thinking — TV is still the #1 appliance in the living room. But how much has it changed in the last decade?

LCD TVs are becoming cheaper and more and more people are ditching the old, bulky ones in favor of them. We will all eventually move towards that direction.


 

Here’s a quick question to my readers here — which TV is in your living room?

I got my Samsung 32″ LCD TV over a year ago (it took me a lot of convincing too) and I don’t plan on upgrading it anytime soon. I think it fits the living room just fine (although if I move to a bigger house, I might consider a bigger one too).

    We don’t have a TV in the living room, only in the family room and the bedroom. We haven’t gotten around to switching to LCD, although with the price of these things nowadays, I am definitely thinking of getting one. Besides, my son got a PS3 for his birthday (from lolo and lola) and I think it deserves HDMI.

    We only have two tvs at home. One in the living room and the other in our bedroom. The one in the living room is ancient and needs several whacking before it gets itself right and you can see the picture. The other in the bedroom is an old, small, bulky one that seldom gets used. We’re always moving so we never really got the chance to get a new one. For now, we just rely on our laptops to get the latest news and see movies. Or, I guess we aren’t really just ‘TV’ persons.

    We bought a Samsung 32″ LCD early this year which bumped our 19″ CRT panasonic out of the sala and up into the bedroom. The old refurbished Japanese clunky model got booted out of the bedroom and was given to my sister-in-law in the province.

    ciao!

    42″ Sony Bravia in the living room and 32″ Sony Wegas in each room.. the benefit of the lcd, whether large or small, is that it saves space. I would like to see cheaper lcd models over time.. especially with the lack of space in most filipino homes for a large CRT. Most people get caught up in the 720/1080p. But in reality, whats the point if you don’t have a blue-ray player.. They only broadcast at 720p in the states on their HD channels so the 1080p that some (including myself) are paying for is rendered useless until many years down the road. I think the true benefit to the filipino consumer is the space it saves, not the picture quality, as the tv broadcast in the Philippines won’t reach 720p for a long while. So they should market here accordingly.

    42″ dynex, 1080p LCD HDTV

    a 21″ sony wega sits in the bedroom, while a 21″ panasonic entertains those in the sala. an LCD TV would be better, but the best option, I think, would be to get a widescreen LCD monitor: higher resolution and more functionality.

    We have a Samsung 37″ LCD TV in the living room. All four bedrooms each have CRT TVs.

    @Ed
    A good alternative to uber expensive BluRay players is the Popcorn Hour Media Streamer. It’s what I use to watch HD movies.

    We got mine last year, Its a Victor HDTV, i dunno the exact sku or product name, but, superb hdtv for me, works well with our magnavox blu-ray player.

    we have 2 CRT flat screen tv’s at home — a 29-incher in the living room and a 21-incher in my bedroom. no plans yet on buying an LCD ‘coz both of my tv’s are still in perfect working condition. besides, watching cable on a big-screen LCD is such an eyesore.

  16. Ed says:

    @lyle – actually i have popcorn hour back in the states! i forgot to bring it over with me.. haha i miss it!

    @paul – i agree.. philippine cable on a large lcd is pixelated and actually looks worse on an lcd than a newer crt (in my opinion) because the lcd stretches out the picture.

    does anyone here watch cable on their lcd with the picture setting to normal 4:3? or do you naturally just stretch it out to the “full” or “wide” or “wide zoom” setting to fill out your screen? if you are ever feeling self-conscious about yourself, just stretch out your tv picture to wide or full.. it makes the actors/actresses look “bigger” hehe

    we have no TV in our living room. all tv sets in all the bedrooms are all crt. i hate the crt in my parents’ room because it’s big and so bulky.
    someday when i get to have my own house, i would love to have lcd tv’s! =)
