Flatscreen TV in HD----Does everyone have one?

We have not yet had the urge to buy one. The TV's we have now we have had for yrs and are fine. When someone comes over I feel somewhat like I'm out of date cause we haven't gotten one.

  • Nope. My DH and I did buy one last year with part of our tax return however it got stolen before we'd even had time to use the wall mount. Guaranteed next time we get one it will come out of the box and be attatched to the wall with a couple of hours! What's worse than that tho is that my boys were asleep on the couch in the living room (where the TV was) while the people stole it!

  • I have never bought a tv, though I own 2. My first one I brought over from my childhood home when I got married. The second one I found out by the dumpster at our old apt lol. Both work excellent. When they die out I will get a flt screen probably, but it won't be a huge one or overly expensive. I don't believe in keeping up with the Joneses and I certainly don't believe in throwing something out that still has good use. P.S. I also found 2 computer printers that were perfectly fine out by the dumpster and several furniture pieces and various items. It amazes me what people will throw out!

  • We don't have a flat screen period. We keep trying to save for one, but it seems like something else seems to happen and taking care of those needs are more important than a TV.

  • We have 2 as well. A couple of years ago on Black Friday there were some really good deals and my DH has always wanted one. Since we have a video game room for the kids we got one for that room and the family room. We still have an old style TV as well upstairs in the living room. Funny thing is my DD has been sick so her and I have been watching the old TV because going down stairs is hard for her.

  • Nope. We had a regular tv that was getting old and not working the best, and my parents got a new flatscreen HD tv and we bought their old one (almost identical to our old one, just 2" bigger and 13 years newer). We only have bunny ears & the converter anyway, no need for a HD tv and don't have a place to put a flat screen either.

  • We have a big one in thye living room. My husband just had to have one. It's really nice and has a beautiful, but I myself would have rather spent the money on other things.
