My First HDTV

(Originally posted Saturday, June 08, 2013)

My downstairs TV has been dying for months so today I bought my first HDTV to replace it. I’m really happy so far. I remember back in the day HDTVs were supposed to be complicated to set up. This couldn’t possibly have been easier. The hardest part was that I ran an ethernet wire from the basement and put the heads on myself (it sent through a hole too small for a pre-made patch cable).

The Vizio E390i-A1:

$399 + tax at Costco. 120Hz, 1080p, 3 HDMI.

Even the Wii U just worked right when we turned it on the first time.

My hat’s off to these guys, they have done a great job with UI and OOBE.
