Size Isn't Everything (Apparently) - The Devil is in the Detail...


Over the weekend I went to stay with Ady and Carl down in Oxshott. They live in such a lovely part of the world and I'd resisted invitations once too often. So it was with some excitement I headed down there on Saturday. We had a great time playing games and just hanging out. It's always nice to catch up with the boys and they were perfect hosts.

Star of the weekend was however their new massive TV.

Naturally I was suitable impressed with their new 42" whopper. I'd perhaps been rather more modest when I bought mine and stuck to 32" (which had arrived on Friday). Ady and I had in fact been chatting about new TVs for some time and had both decided to go for one of these big LCD HD-ready jobbies. He'd plumped for a Sony whereas I'd gone for a Samsung (after doing some research with Ali and following his recommendation).

To be more exact overyourhead has joined the High Definition Age with not one but two new gadgets. To twit:
- Samsung LE32R41BDX 32" Greenwich II LCD TV HD Ready with Built in Digital Freeview
- Telewest TVDrive

And I have to say. They are both excellent. HD is indeed very impressive but I guess we'll have to wait to see when the new content actually starts getting broadcast. Sky may be up and running before Telewest I suspect.
