Re: ValueElectronics HDTV Shoot-out Evaluation Event

Remember the days when you went to the local five and dime (drug store for all you youngsters) or the local hardware store to shop for just about everything you needed?

I remember walking in and being surrounded by shelves filled with all sorts of goods that were proudly displayed

I remember my dad and I being greeted almost instantly and him being addressed as Mr Grant even if they were a new employee (and in perfect English)

I remember how the person behind the counter would come out to shake your hand and ask you if you needed help finding something

I remember that when my dad asked a question he got a concise, straight answer and usually a bit of an education to boot

I remember when they would try and sell you the right tool for the job and not any more expensive than it needed to be

I remember when the manager would often let us take something home to make sure it was what we needed without even paying for it

I remember when trust, loyalty and service really meant something in this country and to the stores and people of home town usa

I remember


Do you remember? It may not be easy in this day and age of hurry up and give me the lowest price possible and best service but I as a customer give you nothing in return
We have become victims of our own demands and have vanquished that age old corner store into the stone age and in its place are big, cold boxes with impersonal service and
care less attitude if your a customer or not.

Well if you care to take yourself back to a time when the customer and store owners were equal and treated with the utmost respect, I suggest you talk with Robert and Wendy at Value Electronics
My travels were taking me to Long Island this week and I knew I could not pass up the chance to go and visit with these two special people. Its was almost 75 miles out of my way but it might as well
been 200 because they are deserving of our appreciation the way they give it back to us. You may find a cheaper price somewhere else but nowhere else will you get so much more than just the purchase you made. You get a friendship, an honest business owner driven by passion for av and not money, and most of all, an educator who helps others enjoy the most of their time spent watching a movie, auditioning a fine pair of speakers or whatever makes av your passion

The corner store for av is here at Value Electronics, do you remember?

Thank you Aleic and all members who have made me feel at home so quickly. And to all the new members who joined HTS to continue to be my friend and get the insider information I happily share with you all.

Much thanks, I will serve you all to the best of my ability.

Hope to see you all in person at the shoot-out and those who can't make it in person please don't miss the moderated live webcast. This is an event no one should miss.

Re: ValueElectronics HDTV Shoot-out Evaluation Event

I know this had been posted somewhere else but I thought it was important to those who are just coming to know you how much character and quality your store and you personally possess. It will serve us all who are here with a common bond.

cheers

Re: ValueElectronics HDTV Shoot-out Evaluation Event

I look forward to his event each year, and last year I was lucky enough to receive an invitation to attend. There is no better way to compare the flagship displays than having them lined up next to one another, properly calibrated and evaluated.

Kudos to Robert for the time and expense that he outlays to put on the event.

Re: ValueElectronics HDTV Shoot-out Evaluation Event

John, Jon and cajieboy, thank you so very much for your kind words.

To enhance this year's event we did the following upgrades:

1. We paid a ton of cash to get a direct feed to the Internet, this connection is so very fat that we'll be broadcasting the shoot-out in HD and we can have as many users viewing and chatting with our team of moderators as needed.

2. I purchased the top premium dedicated www.livestream.com/hdtvshoot channel, with no commercials or limitations of any kind. If you go to www.livestream.com/hdtvshootout you will see our first day's 2010 shoot-out. You can see the second night's 2010 event on our

Re: ValueElectronics HDTV Shoot-out Evaluation Event

Joel's presentation was fascinating.

"We are currently seeing the worst out-of-the-box calibration in 15 years."

How does one know the nomenclature for the proper aspect ratio? Is there a standard based on the different manufactures?
