The death of an institution

I am saddened to report the passing of our television sometime during the late afternoon or early evening of February 23, 2011. It was a faithful TV, passed on to us by my brother's future-in-laws, and it was well-loved for its ability to transmit the news, Glee, and American Idol, along with copious amounts of Good Eats. It now refuses to respond to the power button being pressed, and was pronounced dead at approximately 10pm on the same evening.

In lieu of flowers, recommendations for new HDTVs can be freely given.

We have a works...I can tell the difference between HD and non-HD channels. However, the remote receiver tends not to recieve from angles one would not normall consider weird.

Robert W. Leonard said... is what we used. It was free shipping and a nice discount to boot. We've never had trouble with it so I'd say check out the deals. There is also a nice site called that will let you enter your zipcode to search for local coupons and such. I've found some great hardware deals on there.

Also recommend Samsung. We went to Best Buy because Doug wanted to see the TVs, and it turns out 72Hz is enough.
