Martha Stewart Says She Likes Sony's New Flat Screen OLEDs

Do You Have a Flat Screen TV Yet?

I remember looking at my old tube TV and thinking what a sad, old, honkin' piece of old technology it was. Like Richard Simmons, I wanted to drop the unneeded bulk and upgrade to the skinny model: The Flat Screen. I eventually did it, with a 50-inch Sony that's all I dreamed it could be.

I'm not the only flat screen enthusiast — Martha Stewart, all-important doyenne of aesthetics, recently gave the new Sony OLEDs a rave review: "I like it." With an endorsement like that it's no wonder that flat screens are making a splash as decor, and let's face it, it's the shape of the future and we'll all have flatties eventually. Do you have yours yet?

want one but can't afford it at the moment. plus, i don't really like the way things look in hd/bluray so i wouldn't bother buying that when i do get one. everything looks so fake. like especially in movies the sets look like they are made from cardboard boxes. >.<

Hee, Brooklynbee, that is so cute! I have a cheap little 15" flat panel. Even a 15" CRT is so huge and heavy. I need all the space saving goodness I can get. Also, I figure the TV would be less expensive than the back problems I'll develop from moving a CRT (yeah, I do move a lot). My current abode faces a TV signal tower so I get fantastic reception just sticking a coil of copper wires into the TV.

my dad bought me my first tv (i've lived on my own for almost 8 years now and never had a tv) this past December. My tv is a 26" flat panel samsung and i use it for movies/tv on dvd and wii game playing! It was on a great sale for only $400 or so down from around $650 ish. I think it is so beautiful, so much better than many other brands i've seen. I liked it so much that i bought an external monitor from samsung that sort of "matches" it. :)

Why replace something that's still working well? Well at least that's my policy.

I bought mine on Craigslist and got it for a pretty good price — I think I paid $350 for a 36" tv. I use bunny ears to get HDTV broadcasts.

Yep, we have a Samsung DLP. Uptown_girl, I'm glad I'm not the only one who is bothered by people's poorly configured TVs. Why on earth would you spend thousands of dollars on a TV if you have the aspect ratio wrong or the contrast off? I'm going to the HD Expo in Chicago next week and I'm pretty excited about all the HD toys I'll see there.

Yep, two flat panels: one 20" LCD for the bedroom and one 37" plasma in the family room. (oh, and two 21" LCD monitors for our office systems). LOVE them. HD is not negotiable any more. I'm totally spoiled.

The only reason I have one is because my father is a tech geek too but he has more money to burn than I do. Giving me old gadgets means he has an excuse to upgrade his own.

Oh after reading the comments, I guess I mean flat panel.. not flat screen. I think.

I work in television, and see professional broadcast quality all day everyday. It's my job, I'm a video editor. Plus I see HD video pretty much every day too. So I couldn't stand going home to a crappy 20+ year old tv (it was in my parents bedroom when I was a child, that's how old). So my bf & I bought a flat screen, flat panel television in May, but I refused to pay the high price for cable when there wasn't ANYTHING on in the summer. So we suffered with an antenna until September when new shows premiered. We watched a lot of Netflix that summer! When I finally did sign up for cable I went all out and got HD. And I say everyday, HD is worth every penny. My friends make fun of me, because I mention things like the color being off on their tvs, or if they are watching a widescreen movie on a widescreen tv, but don't have it formatted correctly, it bugs me! I grab people's remotes when I am at their houses & fool with their tvs ALL THE TIME. I can't help it, it's part of my job!

We have a flat screen HDTV! Honestly, I was one of the naysayers that thought life was just fine with a tube TV. But that big screen HDTV really transforms the movie-watching/gaming experience. I have a hard time going back to watching anything on my little tube TV in my office.

I convinced my mom to buy a 42" plasma about 4 years ago when I was living at home, and got completely spoiled off of it, so when I moved into my own place, I got a 38" Philips LCD. I actually prefer the slightly 'smaller' size because it fits into the room much better. So, while it's still quite generous, it's not an overbearing presence.

Nope, just a tube.
