My daughter, Tiffany called me on the cellphone while we were standing at the television section of the Best Buy store. Art and I have been seesawing back and forth trying to decide which TV to buy. Art is reluctant to get cable so it was important that we get a TV with a good tuner to catch those elusive television signals from somewhere up in the air.
"Hi, Tif, we're at the Best Buy looking at the Sonys. Don Quixote's has a sale on the 32" and Best Buy will match the price. We decided not to get it at Don Quixote because they have no return policy if the tuner is not good. Best Buy has a 30 day return policy."
"Mom," my daughter says with a sigh, "I know you're not going to buy a TV. You and Dad won't buy anything until you've researched it to death and looked at every single set on the island. Then you'll wait for a sale..."
I suppose our daughter knows us very well but we talked to a very knowledgeable Best Buy associate who told us all about picture brightness, tuner, etc. and we decided to take the plunge.
We haven't set it up yet. I'll let you know if we're able to get more than 3 stations. At the very worst, I may end up doing more reading instead.
When I called Tif a few minutes later to tell her we'd bought the TV, she laughingly said, "Mom, you didn't buy the TV just to prove me wrong did you?"
Now then....if it does work OK... do we buy a blue ray or a DVD player? One had a wireless capability. One had Netflix connectivity. Arrrrghhhhh!
