While doing a little Christmas shopping, I happened across a great item for everyone in the family: an 85-inch, 3-D, Ultra HD television. Price tag: $39,997.99 But that's marked down from an original price of nearly $45,000.
The item is listed on Amazon.com and features such ammenities as voice control, internet streaming content and micro-dimming (whatever that is). As a bonus, the AA batteries for the Smart Touch remote are included. Score!
But what makes this particular item so special are the comments from those who ordered the TV. All seem to be enraptured with their purchase, even if they have other problems to deal with as a result. Here are some samples:
"My wife and I bought this after selling our daughter Amanda into white slavery. We actually got a refurbished. It's missing the remote, but oh well-- for $10K off, I can afford a universal, right? The picture is amazing. I've never seen the world with such clarity. Amanda, if you're reading this, hang in there, honey! We'll see you in a year."
"When comparing TVs here, I saw Amazon also sells an 84" Toshiba model for just $13K. But I got this one instead, and haven't regretted the purchase, because as a rather insecure male, it's well worth the extra $27K to have that extra inch."
"I love this TV!!! I work at Burger King during the day but picked up a job moonlighting at 7-11 to help pay for it. I have been robbed 8 times and was stabbed 3 of those times but it’s so worth it."
"I was on the fence but with the energy savings on this bad boy it practically pays for itself in 1200 years."
With endorsements like these, I simply have to get one. Hey, at least it's cheaper than a Christmas tree, right?
