Something New for Someone Old

Sunday, January 10, 2010

As you get older you start losing more and more things. It starts with your sight, goes to your memory and then ends with your hearing. Although this TV doesn't give you back all of these things it does enhance what you have left of them.

As you lose your sight it gets harder and harder to see your remotes. The buttons are small and there are just so many. The TV Ears TV comes with a remote that has only six buttons (Power, Volume up, Volume down, channel up, channel down and mute). It also has a slide down panel that reveals a traditional number keypad to get to a channel faster. TV Ears takes great pride in their remote and they have every right to.

Usually the farther you sit from your TV the harder it is for you to hear... but not with this TV. As long as you are in range you will have no problems hearing from anywhere you're sitting. This set comes standard with a comfortable set of wireless headphones. This move was was made to cut down on volume blasting when switching from channel to channel.

The best feature, in my opinion, is what the creators included for those that fall asleep while watching TV. After 4 hours the set will automatically turn off so as not to waste any money on your electric bill and not surprise you when you wake up in the morning. The TV's timer resets whenever you press a button on your remote so it won't turn off while you're actually watching TV.

The price is steep at $1,199 but all that money doesn't just go into the set. To maintain their senior friendliness the company offers White Glove Services. They deliver the TV, hook it up, program the remote for all of your external devices, and they initiate one on one instruction for the owner. If the price hasn't turned you away and the features interest you the set will be available to consumers in March. You can find more information about this set HERE

This TV is something I could see myself getting. I say this because it annoys me so bad when I fall asleep with the TV on. January 11, 2010 at 8:43 PM  

Yep, have to agree with Pamela. This TV is something I could get very used to!
