Materialism: The "What have you bought?" Thread

Recommended Posts

I've got that tv, if it's the 40" one. Your eye's take a good raping unless you sit at least 4 metres away from it though. Worth the pain though.

Yesterday I bought a Saab Automatic 2.0 Turbo 95 on a 2005 plate with 12k milage for £10995. Drives like a dream.

 

You bought a Vauxhall :D

 

Unless you really meant a reconditioned Saab ninetyfive?

We've got a 40" Samsung plasma in the stores at work doing nothing because the bloke who project managed the new Video Conference equipment install "happened" to order on screen too many.....

 

I'm waiting for it to suddenly 'disappear' then ask him what happened to it...... in earshot of his boss of course :lol:

Have a look at the back of it and see if its a Q97 Series. plus when you get it back home change the default setting as the out of the box settings are poor.

i,m getting the extra Samsung tallboy speakers x4 for mine next month as well,cost 250 wich isnt a bad price.

I'm all for plasmas and lcds on stands in a corner of the room. If you mount them on the chimney breast you completely change the focus of the room and have to move the chairs, coffee table, etc accordingly.

 

Having all your seating pointing generally in the direction of the 'tv corner' seems more cosy than the cinema-style sofa-against-the-back-wall set-up a wall mounted set encourages.

Totally wrong.

 

The 21st century living room should (nay, must) reject the dated notion of a tv in the corner. Surround sound insists on being set up in a square, not a diamond.

I couldn't give a shit, mine's staying in the corner. I've got a Victorian terraced house and that's where the Victorians put their tellies.

Good choice, all the best people have Panasonic tellys. Their customer care is top notch too, I had a problem that my Profile Editor in the settings menu stopped working. Emailed them, they said it was a known issue and sent me a software update that went in the pcmcia slot.

 

Also got the car serviced and mot'd today and bought this:
