Getting my parents a new tv. Best Buy worked up a bid with all the add-ons and shit. The $1400 TV is now $2400. I don't need the brackets or an ugly particle board stand, they have plenty of real furniture. I don't need a Blu Ray player since they haven't watched a DVD in years. I am getting the Bose speaker system which is like $500 Not having them set it up because the cable co. will do it for $24 when the new HD box comes in instead of 199. I know I don't need to get Rocketfish (Best Buy brand) HDMI cables for $30 because I can get them for $4. All the packaging claims dont mean shit, hdmi is hdmi (unless it's hdmi premium or something.) Am I correct in my decisions and where should I get the cables? Have I missed anything? Oh yea, I need a surge protector. (where should I get that/ which one.) I know alot of you care/know alot about TVs and the like so I welcome all suggestions. I didn't mention the tv because I think that's decided already and there will too many oppinions on that. Oh, and No HAL in this thread.
