Think back at the weight/mass of those large CRTs... Terrible, BIL gave me a 32" I think it was, Sony, all we had to do was move it.. Almost buckled my knees as we came in the door, then the fun of placing it in the cabinet.. I gave it away as we went to the 46", on the condition they did all the moving.. Over 200# I think, glad it's gone...

I'm still OK for distance, using Doc Edell's for reading fine print.. But we know it's less than it was.. I almost scrimped, got a smaller TV for my office, turns out the 40" is perfect... World of difference from the old 21" crt.. Both Samsung, but the old crt was just too fuzzy to read game scores!

GO NINERS!!

The Mits topped out at about 450 lbs. The only TV I’ve had that had a switch to align it with the Earth’s magnetic field. Sold it to our accountant who brought her DH and two other husky young firefighters. Even they puffed getting it down three flights.

Odd thing how I got excited when with the first hi-def set how clear the lettering screen shots was. Still get a thrill from it. I remember the first VHS player I owned and how fuzzy type was. I wasn’t impressed. Now, in glorious 1080p, I am impressed. Put it under the heading of small things impress small minds.

What’s a Niner? One less than a Tenner or slightly better than an Eighter?
