After many year of great use and enjoyment. Our old style big screen has finally stopped longer working. We have been comparing prices and quality of LCD Tv’s. We are really in favor of the samsung lcd We really like the picture and Quality of the samsung. And if we are going to spend that much money. We want to get what we like. After all we ll be looking at it for years to come. James is also wanting to upgrade our surround sound. That all him I know nothing about that part.
