    Just got back from a trot around the road with Alfie and been nosing in the windows of those that don't draw their curtains. :eek:
    All but one seemed to have a cinema screen on their walls. The other had a large free standing flat screen.

    Mines about 20 years old and looks a bit like this

    11 mths.

    I have a techy-geek hubby who likes tv's. :rolleyes:

    If he hadn't moved in, I'd still have my old 28" mega-sized tube thing that weighed a ton and took up half the room. :)

    Our main one is about 4 years old . 32' Sony. The kids tv's were new last christmas, both little flat screen tv's with dvd built in.

    Those older tv's weigh a ton compared to todays versions Rona.

    i've had mine for four years. my parents donated it to me when i moved into my flat - they'd had it for a good 10 years or so before that! so it's ancient, but i refuse to change it until it stops working! :p

    OH tricked me... Our old TV died about 3 years ago and we went to look at flatsceens ..
    WE picked out one which I thought was more than big enough but the salesman was taking ages and I was getting hot and dizzy in the shop so I stepped outside while OH dealt with the purchase...

    As I stood outside waiting for him I noticed people coming out of te shop laughing and nudging each other looking at me... Then I saw OH emerge with what looked like a door in a box :yikes:

    HE had decided we needed the cinama sized screen :angry:

    Every woman who comes to the house remarks thats its too big ..every bloke says 'wow, bril ,bet the porn/sport/ is great on that'

    The one in our sitting room is a 37" jobby and the other in the Kitchen extension is a 29".

    They're about a couple of years old now - only because the last two decided to go kaput together! :rolleyes:

    Ours is quite new about 3-4 months old but that's because hubby said our old TV was on its way out plus he wanted a 55" 3D smart TV :rolleyes:. Our old one lasted us 5 years. :)
