We got a really great deal on a 26" LCD flat TV with built in DVD so we went ahead and bought it. The one we got is a "less desirable" (so cheaper) one because the colors are a little washed out because of the contrast or something like that (though at home it doesn't look washed out... just next to other ones at the store). The thing is that's what I need because of my eyes and the dimness of my vision. Too much contrast and too dark colors and I have trouble distinguishing what I am seeing even with my glasses on. So for once my bad eyes are a good thing lol

We're probably getting FiOS TV, too.

Well, they've been watching stuff downloaded from iTunes so they already have seen a lot of what is on. They are all excited by the size of the screen lol The eMac that they've been watching on has a 15" screen. They can't figure out why we can only watch DVDs on it so far though. They don't get that we have to order FiOS TV and then wait for it to be installed. When we went out last night to look at TVs Ani asked if when we got home if we bought a TV if she could watch Animal Planet lol

LOL! Good for you. My HD wants one of those huge projection tv monstrosities! Thankfully he has to save up for it first and his new camera has him so obsessed right now I think it will be at least another year before the tv discussion comes up again. We have an almost 10 year old 20" tv right now.

Tomorrow morning. Jamie will hang the TV on the wall sometime today so it will be all ready.

Yay!!! I think you'll love it! They have so many interesting channels and we actually watch more of those and learn stuff rather than the other junk!
