My Journey To Consumer Hell

I’m about to embark on a maddening journey, one that I’ve not attempted for 6 long years. Ahead of me lies great heartache and many difficult choices. It’s a journey most men approach with great trepidation, as the effects of one wrong move can linger for many years.

As part of the great basement finishing project of 2006 (well underway), I find myself with an empty new media room. Yes I’m in the market for a home theater system, mostly just the TV portion of said system.

Could there be a more confusing time in which to attempt to make a major technology purchase?

Of course I wondered exactly the same thing 6 years ago when I skipped the pricey HDTV models hitting the market and went for a solid Phillips 60 inch rear projection big screen TV.

Somehow I suspect I will be even more angst filled this time around as the choices have multiplied in the interim…

He that liveth by the drive-by shooting...
