Samsung PN42A450P Review

By on Jan 15, 2010 | 0 comments

I had purchased my first HDTV a little more than a year ago, and I had decided that I would actually write a review on this TV.  I had purchased the Samsung PN42A50P (42″ Plasma), and currently have my TV connection (Verizon FIOS) connected via HDMI as well as my upconverting DVD Player.  I had got a decent deal on this TV ($799.99) in July of 2008 at Best Buy in Pittsburgh.  While looking for TVs I was leaning towards and LCD, however for my budget I set aside and picture size I felt this was a good purchase. This model is only a 720p display, and I know there are debates on what size you will notice the difference between 720 and 1080, however I could not tell comparing TVs in this size range. The main difference between this TV in Plasma and that of an LCD is the number of pixels. Just taking into consideration the set’s resolution 1024×768 you would think that it has a 4:3...

I was looking through the application store in iTunes and came across Midomi. It has been out for a while now and has gotten some great reviews, so I figured I would give it a try. Basically, this program lets you hum, sing, type, or listen to audio. Based off of that recorded sample it will tell you the song. There have been many times when I have heard a song I really liked but had absolutely no idea what it was. With this application I am now easily able to “grab” a portion of a song and get the title. I have hummed a few songs and it figured it out fairly fast. Some attempts at humming brought up multiple possible songs, but the one I hummed was definitely there. As for the grab feature, every song I have played on my computer here at work has been found and was correct. [rating:5] This app may not have many uses, but it is definitely worth the download.
