Daily Blog – John E. Johnson, Jr. – March 28, 2008: HOW ABOUT A BIG ONE?

The news says that due to the economy, HDTV manufacturers believe consumers will scale back on their TV purchases and not get that 50″ plasma, but the smaller ones instead. So, they are going to increase production of 30″ and smaller flat panel HDTVs.

I don’t think so.

50″, 60″, 62″ . . . that is what has been marketed to us now for several years. They have been building us up to buy a BIG HDTV!

So, now they think that just because gas is headed to $4 a gallon, we are going to cut back on something we do at least 2 hours every evening? Cut back on the size of our new HDTV?

My first HDTV was a 30 incher, and it cost me $2,800. It was 720p.

Now that I can buy a 60″ for $2,295 . . .

Let’s put it this way. 30″ TVs are for the bathroom.
