Whew.. camped BestBuy on Black Friday. MMy lil story.
Ill edit more later... bottom line, saw something I WANTED and I camped since 1030pm EST on Thurs... Line started at 4am Fri to get tickets etc.
What was I camping for?
THAT. What I didnt know is the gem I bought was better then I thought!
I bought it on Black Friday only sale for 130$ (normal is 300$)
Just hooked it up and wow.. new monitor for me. ^^ (I was using a 14 in LCD flat screen) Now I am 15 Inch on desktop..
What surprised me is that it HAS component video in! I was like OMG... I was exepecting S vid, AV and VGA... It was advertised as a 480p TV/Monitor.. was like ok.. thats good for "me"
Turns out I think this sucker is a 420p/i, 720p/i and 1080i according to the box. Im like whoa...
I have NEVER had a High Def TV before... am I in for a surprise? Orig I was going to hook up my 360 with a VGA cable.. Im wondering if I should still do that or just go the component video cables... thoughts?
Also having a slight issue.. Font on my PC now looks kinda.. not blurry.. but kinda a strain on my eyes now.. kinda blends in.. not sure.. anything you all know off hand I can change?
Side items I bought was a 60 GB USB 2.0 5400 RPM external HD, Its very slim... slimmer then a DVD case and abit smaller too in length. 50$
1 GB SD memory card for 15$ (Which will be used for the Wii as I dont know later what they will add that may require alot.. I mean Wii is bundling 1 GB and 2 GB as 1st party accessories for some reason..)
Whats funny is.. I got a voucher ticket for this TV... but everyone was going for the 32 inch western one lol. So they had so many of these sitting around and to me its a gold mine... cause never had ANYTHING "component" and for me.. I just love TV and Monitor all in same spot.. I mean my game consoles are hooked up to my TV card on my desktop.. so for me this was better..
Im just happy.. tired tho.. I have to leave my house at 11am (730am now) to be at work at 12pm and work till 11pm tonight EST... so dont expect me on forums when I get home... Im gonna be dead.
Anyways.. just wanted to say YEAAAAAA...(Btw.. at 1030pm last night... I was already the 110-120th person in line.. so tells you how soon they started camping for the Best Buy sales itself, not PS3 or Wii waiters, just TV, laptop and desktop ppl waiting really, parking lot was full.. glad I had a spot hehe)
Anyways, if anyone has ideas about the font issue looking odd and strain.. help me out some. =)
