The Luddite Geek joins the HD crowd

In many ways I feel like I’m a Luddite geek.  I’m well aware of the cutting edge of technology trends, and can explain them to my non-geek family and friends.  But I am very seldom living at that cutting edge any more.  I have little interest in the latest and coolest toys, I want them to be stable and proven before I jump on the bandwagon.

HD TV is there… we’ve replaced our reasonably good CRT TV with a middling size and price LCD.  All I can say is “WOW!!”.  Watching a DVD I know pretty well, it was amazing to see detail I hadn’t noticed before.  The sharpness and clarity needs to be seen to be believed, and there is even sometimes a bit of a 3D effect, if the shot has been focused in such a way as to keep the background blurred.

I’m looking forward to seeing how sporting events look.
