You will all love it. We have the 55" one at the lakehouse. Love it, love it, love it.
Get the ESPN app - when you turn it on, it shows the scores of the games, you choose the type (MLB, NFL, NCAA). It sits in the upper left and updates automatically.
Get pandora for Christmas music.
Our washer died Monday. We are limited for depth space here, so the selection was very limited. But I got a toploader for a decent price. It was delivered yesterday.
Wednesday, the TV in the livingroom died. Finally. It was a 400lb (seriously) tube TV, Sony made them to last forever. I measured to get the largest possible TV. And we used BestBuy because a guy at my husband's office has a brother who is a store manager - discount! This is what we got. Samsung 46" Class LED 1080p 240Hz Smart 3D HDTV UN46ES8000FXZA - Best Buy
We are going to take 2 pair of the 3D glasses to the lake for the other TV. This one does voice commands, has built-in wireless internet, and has motion recognition. I am sad to say it also has a builtin camera so you can Skype - I do not look good on TV. It was delivered 4 hours ago, so we are still setting it up as we wrap presents.
Next on the list, a Samsung Blueray player. These TVs automatically recognize the player being tuened on and switch settings. Love it!
After you register the TV and hook it up to the internet, it will automatically do firmware updates. Customer service is awesome.
