Was delivered to my doorstep today. This is her picture. These are her measurements and features.

Errrr, yeah it's a TV

I'm really, really excited about my shiny new toy! And also highly caffeinated, could be a connection there.
Also purchased the Samsung BD-C6800 3D blue-ray player, but unfortunately I don't have any 3D content to try out yet. Might pick-up a copy of Avatar tomorrow and try out those glasses. That should be an....interesting spectacle

Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

Haha, cool. I hope you enjoy it. New toys are always fun.


The mind is a strange and wonderful thing. I'm not sure that it will ever be able to figure itself out, everything else, maybe. From the atom to the universe, everything, except itself.

Ok, if we're going to talk about shiny new toys...

My latest shiny new toy is a Dell U2711 monitor, I got it two weeks ago. It's incredible; 27 inch screen with a nice high resolution (2560 x 1440) and very good color reproduction (Dell calibrates this screen in the factory, so you can be sure the colors are accurate).

Enjoy your new TV Jelle!

Ah, you know I got this really bad attitude that managers, economists and materialistic women hate. The less I work, the happier I am. And the less money I spend, the less I have to work. I got a ten year old TV, and it suits me fine. Of course others may organize their life in the different manner, without my complaints.

I guess
Yesterday I "wasted" my evening playing around with the TV's and the blu-ray player's features.
I like the Internet@TV option, but it's very limited. Just the available apps, of which the Youtube app is the most interesting.
The 720p content looks amazing on a 46" screen! I'll ever watch Youtube on my tiny 17" TFT monitor again
Still, I'm going to look for a decent NMT, or maybe assamble an HTPC.
Regardless, I also need decent NAS device with a few TBs of storage capacity to store audio / video / image content.
There goes my vacation budget for 2011....
