I was doing my part for the economy, by buying a new TV from Amazon.com for myself. TV's have gotten really cheap, compared to just a few years ago: a 19" Vizio LED LCD 720P, made primarily for bedrooms and kitchens only costs $128. I paid $250 for a 15" TV about 4 or 5 years ago, and the picture is not very good at all, compared to the CRT TV it replaced. Anyways, when I went to check out, it showed a $50 gift card credit, with the explanation that if I signed up for an Amazon Rewards Visa card, I would get an instant $50 gift card. That made my $128 TV cost only $78. It took less than 5 minutes from start to finish. For $50, I will go to a little extra trouble to pay an extra bill this month. I use my 'little' TV quite a lot, and I have never been very pleased with the one I have been using. Reviews of the Vizio have been very good, especially given it's price point, which used to be $150, last summer. With the Cyber Monday discount, and the $50 gift card, I got it for almost exactly HALF that price. Hard to beat. For over 20 years, my 'big' (main) TV was a 20" Mitsubishi CRT stereo TV. I remember how excited I was to hook an amplifier up to two old floor standing stereo speakers. I'm still using the same amplifier and speakers today. I built the enclosures for the 12" three way speakers back in 1972, when I was still in college, and had almost no money at all. They still sound good to me. When it was really hot in the summer, I got in the habit of watching my small TV much more, because my 32" Vizio with the stereo amplifier, put out a really noticible amount of heat. I'm really looking froward to a bigger, brighter TV set.
