Black Friday Tip

Since Black Friday is staring us right in the face (next Friday) and if you miss that, there are all kinds of sales screaming buy this or buy that this time of year, I decided to share a real positive buy I made last year that I have enjoyed immensely and still think about it every time I sit down at my computer.

Let me establish a fact here and now, I am a computer junkie and spend most of my waking hours running my computer online, or at least thinking about it. It is a MAJOR part of my life and since I am retired, I have lots of time to spend doing it.

My setup has had dual monitors for many years and I love that enhancement, but last year one of the monitors I had started showing signs of it's age and it bothered me, so I started shopping around. My old one was a 19 inch model, so with two of them I had a fair amount of screen space to spread things out.

Then I started wondering if one of the new modern TV sets could replace that monitor and give me even more space. I got all kinds of mixed reviews when I searched online, but my spirit of adventure took over and I bought an LG 32 inch TV with 1080P resolution to see if it would work. I figured if it didn't satisfy me, I could always put it in the bathroom so I don't miss anything I was watching when I need to go.

My computer is an older Pentium Dual Core with Windows XP (it still works for me) and of course didn't have an HDMI output. The TV I got on a bargain sale didn't have a PC input either, so I got on Amazon and bought an Etekcity VGA to HDMI converter box for $30 and now a year later I am still thrilled enough with the results to write this.

Just to give you an idea how thrilled I am, when my other monitor goes out I will buy another 32 inch TV to have so much screen space I won't know what to do with it all!!!

Seriously, this was the best Black Friday score I have made yet and I love having all those icons on my screens, so when people stop by and see my computer their jaw drops. It really is impressive and using it is a joy.

Happy Holidays!
