OK, there's nothing
fun that spending someone else's money. Well, maybe except for winning
the Powerball, so you never have to worry about money again. We don't
have any winning lottery tickets, but we do
have a high-profile blogger looking for an HDTV
. Are you up to the challenge?Last week
, I mentioned that Robert Scoble
and his wife Maryam
are thinking about an HDTV purchase. I took a stab at their budget, but
I was way high at $7,500. Robert indicated to me that he'd be willing
to spend around three-grand. (Hey, maybe they're getting that wood
stove too. It gets cold in Washington State!)
So the "budget committee" has spoken: $3,000 is the rough limit and Robert is thinking 50-inch DLP. If you had that budget to work with, what would you get and why?
A smaller sized 1080p display? A mid-sized 720p DLP, LCD or PDP? How
about a monster-sized RPTV? C'mon: let's spend Robert and Maryam's
money and make sure they get the best HDTV set out there!
