We bought this 52 inch television in 2007 for $4,500. Since then, prices have decreased drastically. (That’s Rylan standing there.)
Because of the lower prices, David has been looking at TVs at Costco and has been asking me which one I would want in our family room: An 80 inch TV or a 70 inch 3-D TV.
Me: “Neither! What’s wrong with the 52 inch we have now? An 80 inch would be vulgar and grotesque — like those monstrosities (hotels) in Las Vegas. Bigger does not mean better.”
He: “OK. Well, what about a 70 inch? It would not be much bigger than the one we have, because it does not have a frame. And it would be so cool to have 3-D.”
Me: “I don’t understand what the appeal is. I saw a 3-D movie at the theater and was not impressed. In fact, it made me dizzy — even though I was looking at the screen directly in the middle. In our family room, people would be looking at the TV screen from an angle, not straight on. That would really make us dizzy. Let’s wait til the technology improves and we can watch 3-D from any angle without a problem.”
The debate continues…
