I decided to take advantage of the after xmas sales and pick up a new TV. My old TV was hanging in just great but it was close to 6 years old and getting a bit long in the tooth. I’ve been waiting for LED-LCD tech to hit the market and become affordable. I kind of figured when I got my new work laptop with a shiny LED screen it was time to check back into the TV market.
Over the holidays I scoured the interwebs and hit a lot of brick and mortar stores trying to find the perfect combination of features vs price. I found it in the 46″ Samsung Series 6300 LED TV. This thing has everything I was looking for and some that I wasn’t looking for. I knew I wanted full HD with a lot of HDMI ports. Here are some quick stats on the new TV:
- LED-LCD screen (Picture quality is simply amazing!)
- Full HD 1080p at 120Hz
- This sucker is only 1.17″ deep!!
- 4 HDMI ports, 2 USB ports
It also has a builtin media player so you can hook up a usb key with a bunch of mp3’s and the TV will sort them and you can use the remote to play them. In messing around I figured I’d hook my phone up and see if the TV would pick it up..Sure enough since I have music and a couple of movies on my phone the TV asked me if I wanted to listen to music or watch a movie…Pretty damn cool if I do say so.
My old TV was a Samsung and I was thoroughly pleased with it so when I found this TV I knew it was going to kick ass…I just didn’t realize how much. Overall I’m very impressed. Hopefully it will last me 6 or 7 more years!
