How are items from past BF working?


Recommended Posts

Bought my first high-definition TV from Best Buy (Mission Viejo, Calif.) as a Black Friday special in 2005 - actually got it the Sunday following, if that counts. It was a Westinghouse 32-inch, 720p LCD panel: in those days, a stone-cold steal at $850. :P


Glad to say it's still working, though it's no longer mine. In May I used my stimulus check to upgrade to a 42-inch Panasonic plasma (love those blacker blacks!). Now that TV of Christmas past is... my nephew's gargantuan computer monitor. :)




(iPod Nano this BF? Zune? Compact digital camera? Kodak HD pocket camcorder? None of the above? Suggestions welcome...)

Fantastic. I bought these items in 2006 and still work great too:yup:

the target Olevia from last BF has started cutting out randomly in the last few weeks :( maybe ours is going while everyone elses is still okay cause we pretty much leave it on 24/7 ?? I don't know maybe we just got a bad one... from the beginning it was a PITA with the cheapo upconvert DVD player we got from Walmart, thought it was the DVD player but FIL has the same one and it works great.

Iron from BF '06 Wal-Mart is still going strong, I think it was $6.

I have the same iron, still works great and we actually use it quite a bit......mostly for those iron beads and not cloths, but it still get's used.


Other BF things

2 Walmart laptops from years ago still working great.

2 21" or 22" wide screen lcd monitors from Best Buy are still going.

Random tv's through the house, all still working.

$4 sandwich maker from Walmart gets used almost daily still. Same with the waffle maker.


I'm sure there's more, I just can't remember all the BF things I've bought, and I'm sure some of them were given as gifts.
