Do you remember when Sony Corporation came up with the slogan and embellished their TV’s with: It’s a Sony…? Yeah, those were the days, in the 80’s I believe. I guess, that strategy worked because they had that campaign for quite awhile.
Why am I writing about this, you’re probably wondering. Just to let you know, I’m not getting paid, people. My husband is a Sony lover. I wish I can post a picture of his 18 year old Sony 27″ TV(those black colored ones) but I don’t have a pic of it. That dear old TV of Frank died a year ago. It just simply went black one night as I was watching. Frank wanted to get a new one when we moved 3 years ago, but I firmly said no. I wanted to keep the old piece, it was still working. The deal was, he’ll replace it when it dies. So when it turned black that fateful night all he could say was: “there’s a God!”, meaning God finally answered his wish.
As fast as lightning, we head out to get a replacement. We bought and take it home just that one trip to the appliance store. Of course, it’s still a Sony. We love Sony TV’s, in fact all the TV’s in our place are Sony. It’s a very reliable brand and testament to this was that old TV which lasted 18 years.
Now, Frank is happy with his “buddy”. It’s a 32″ Sony Bravia XBR LCD HDTV.
It has a cable card slot, which is cool and tons of dizzying features that I won’t even bother to learn how to use ’em. I’m not a telly girl, remember? It’s very light weight as compared to TV’s with the huge back(those CRT’s). Oh and by the way, Sony no longer manufactures plasma TV’s. I don’t know the reason why, but it must be because of that “screen burn-out” that plasmas are known for after a few years of use. That screen burn-out looks awful I must say, because I saw one in person in a restaurant. It looks like brown spots on the screen. And no, it wasn’t a Sony TV, it was an LG.
