My rant about electronic sales (long)

Postby deluxe_247 » Sun Jan 23, 2005 11:55 pm

i have 2 tvs right now, 32" and 36" sony wegas. im almost positive that the 32" isnt hdtv ready..but im not sure about the 36". i got it about 4 years ago, so i have my doubts, but it did run me 1500. either way, im thinking about going plasma, but need to do my research before making that kind of investment.

well he did have it coming. I don't go out of my way to be an ass.

As for Seawolf's question I see where you're going with it and if you're patient enough to wait I'd suggest to do so. HDTV broadcast is still very limited. And if you're a tivo junkie like I am there just isn't enough tivo/hd integrated machines to keep prices down.

Couple years? I'd be sceptical. But now that the Chairman of the FCC is stepping down, broadcasting companies may get some reprieve for a bit

I don't know what the hell "wega" is, but it sounds cool, kind of like "mega", and I know I want one. :-b

The SONY wega TVs are sweet I bought a 27" one not too long ago. It was less than $400 and has an awesome picture and good sound. I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes those. To be honest though just walk into any TV store and for non-flat panel TVs they are the best out there.


aww, that was absolutely priceless.

No really, I'm not having a bad day.

great story aww, and true to life. I really can't blame the guy for not wanting to lose that much on his commision, but still... once the guy was proven wrong, he should have price matched.

Personally, I'm not big on CC (and now that I think about it, I dislike Circuit City too... :-b ) or Good Guys, and especially CompUSA. Whenever I make a big electronics purchase, its usually at Best Buy.
