Two years ago my husband and I decided that we needed to buy a new television. The television that we had was at least 12 years old. We decided that we would get a HDTV. We spent one whole Saturday going to many stores and looking at televisions. We finally decided on the Sanyo 30 inch Widescreen HDTV. The first thing that my husband said about this television was how heavy it was. You might need an extra set of hands to help you move it around. The television has a flat screen and is silver in color. It is a great color to have because it matches anything. There are five buttons on the bottom on the front of the television. They are the power on/off, volume up/down and channel up/down. The picture quailty on this television is very clear, especially when it is connected to a HD cable box. We have already decided that when we need to buy a new television for our bedroom and our kids bedroom it will more than likely be a Sanyo.
