There's some nice TV features these days. I try to keep our main tv for 10 yrs or so. Maybe a new, higher HD format will be out in the next 3 yrs or so.

I would love to get a bit bigger TV. Maybe 80-ish inches. Bit too pricey for now though. One day.

Have you seen the 4K resolution TV's. They do look nice but there is almost nothing that is made for them yet. Heck, at least half the things I watch aren't even in 1080. It's gonna be a long time before anyone is broadcasting in 4K. And the price on those TV's is REALLY high. For now its a gadget for people with lots of money that have to have the latest and greatest.

I'm with you. I never buy the latest televisions. Their just too expensive. Maybe in few years. I'd like a bigger screen for sure. Probably 60+". Samsung makes nice tvs for the money.

I picked up a 70" Vizio LED from Walmart a few months back. It has Wifi and an ethernet port. Has the Netflix, Youtube and all those web apps. Works pretty good. I opted for the lower Hz, I think 120. If I get another one, I would go with the more expensive higher Hz to get the better picture. I simply did not because of the price.

The 10/22 for the money is one of the best 22's out there. They have more accessories than any other 22lr. I just missed a sale at Cabelas, seems they had an ammo can of 2,100 rounds for a good price. 22Lr is still one of the hard ammunition to get these days. I have a decent supply but still shop for ammo every day.

10/22's rule!

I bought mine down at Stuff 'n Things back in the early 90's. It was the best $100 that I have ever spend on a new rifle.. Very Happy 

I don't know how many thousands of rounds that I have put through that rifle. I never get bored of shooting it..

Taylor, Ruger's new BX-25 mags rock. Try them out..

The way people are hoarding .22LR, you'd think it was made of precious metals.. lol

Yeah, if you see .22LR ammo on the shelf, that's the time to buy it.

The only ammo that I ever had a problem with is Remington's Golden Bullet. That stuff is garbage.

Stick with brands like Federal, American Eagle, Winchester, or CCI. Wink

A while back I was looking at internet modems and surprise! The Chinese manufacture many internet modems. You have to wonder if they have the ability to discreetly pull info from our home computers.

2 weeks ago at Walmart, they had a new in box, sharp aquos 70" LED TV showing a $999 price tag, with an instant 20% off (it was on the clearance table). For $800, I was thinking that it was a great deal. I thought about it and went back the next day and it was gone. It wasn't meant to be. I would prefer my next TV to be at least an 80" one, so I'm always looking for a good deal on one.

Once you get that big why not do a projector instead of a tv? I know they're more expensive but if you already wasting that much on a tv why not make it really nice. Now if I was a millionaire it might be different but a tv just isnt important to me.

That's my question where do you put an 80" TV. I need to move into a barn or something.

I think a TV just gives a much better picture than a projector. Maybe there are better projectors out there than what I've seen, but for me, I'll stick to the TV.

I have plenty of wall space available in my rec room. When I finally get around to getting a TV that big, I'll dedicate the space down there for a home theatre. My current 55" is on the wall in the living room and I couldn't go much bigger there (without a major battle with the missus).

The last year or so some no-name Korean computer high resolution monitors have been appearing on the market. They're built by second tier Korean manufacturers (like Auria), but they're using Samsung and LG 2560x1440 screens. Incredible color, brightness, and resolution at less than half the price.

It is the: HDTV Calibration Wizard by the Monster Cable people. Costs around $30.00.

Use it and, in about fifteen minutes your TV will be properly tuned, something impossible to eyeball.

Or give someone with something similar $300.00 to do the same job.

Many say the Monster Cable folks are snake oil salesmen and checking online the HDTV Calibration Wizard gets much of the same reviews. They say don't waste your money however cheap it is.

Anybsuggestions on wall mounts for tvs? I need two but I need one to angke down slightly and the other to swivel out. But looking at some of these mounts makes me nervous having an expensive tv hanging from it.

If it is impossible to eyeball, why would one tune it to begin with, if you can't see the difference?
