I actually ordered this for my Uunt who has has a hard time seeing little letters. I connected for her and she loves it. We were disappointed that it does not have a light on the screen. She as to pick it up so she can see the numbers/names. It is great for the price. It took about 3wks to get it and it has never taken this long to get an order from Overstock.Read More

I had hoped that a big display would make it easier to see. NOPE! You must get the right angle etc. to see the display properly. Most important, it is NOT backlit! Nice idea though. I found it hard to read in poor light.Read More
item is not back-lit which makes it useless at nightRead More
I expected a backlit display. Not so. Just black letters on grey background. But that's okay, cause it's big enough for me to see from a seat across the (admittedly small) room. But it worked great with the phone I got and will do the job just fine.Read More

1080p-HDTVs vs 1080i-HDTVs
High-definition televisions provide a higher resolution image than standard-definition televisions. Typically, HDTVs are available in three types: 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. The 720p and 1080i resolution TVs are quickly being replaced with 1080p as the industry standard, but there are still a lot of them on the market. Here are some comparison points for both 1080i and 1080p televisions to help you decide which will work best for you. What the numbers mean. In both 1080p and 1080i HDTVs, "1080" refers to the number of lines that make up an image on the screen. Each line is made up of tiny colored dots called pixels. The greater the number of lines, the better the resolution or clarity of the image. A 1080p HDTV displays 1,080 lines of pixels, whereas a regular television uses only 480 lines. Both versions of 1080i and 1080p HDTVs are superior to the 720p HDTV and to SDTV. What the letters mean. The difference between 1080i and 1080p HDTV resolution is seen in the way the lines appear on the screen. The "i" in 1080i or 720i stands for interlaced, meaning the odd-numbered lines appear on the screen followed by the even-numbered lines. The HDTV "interlaces" the lines together to produce an image. This happens faster than your eyes can detect, so you only see the full image. The "p" in 1080p or 720p stands for progressive scan, which means that lines appear sequentially on the screen. For this reason, the latter is said to have a sharper, cleaner image. Cost differences. When the technology was first released, a 1080p HDTV was significantly more expensive than 1080i HDTVs. The price of all HDTVs has dropped dramatically in recent years, however. You'll find great deals on both 1080i and 1080p HDTVs, so the price difference is negligible in most cases. Programming availability. Although 1080p picture clarity might be higher than 1080i, the resolution of the video source being used also matters. Most HDTV broadcasts go no higher than 1080i. Most video games are currently made in 720p, but a few are available in 1080p. Blu-ray players do support 1080p, and more Blu-ray discs are being made to take advantage of this capability. Some on-demand cable and satellite providers offer programming in high definition as well. The 1080p resolution and image quality are quickly being adopted by manufacturers and content providers, so look for more content for HDTVs that take full advantage of this technology.

Best Wall Ideas for Baby's Room
With the arrival of your new baby drawing closer, you'll want to do everything you can to prepare, including furnishing and decorating the baby nursery. A baby nursery that is filled with all the right touches will give your infant a bright and beautiful place to start life. The wall decor can set the mood for the entire room, so start with art and decorations that are fun, interesting, unique and special. Wall art appliques. Removable wall decor appliques and decals offer some of the best ideas for a baby's room. Printed plastic and vinyl wall decals come in a variety of colors and designs. Opt for a themed collection of wall art images and create your own mural, which you can easily rearrange or remove as your child grows and you want to change the room. There are also decals that display words or phrases, such as well-known lines from nursery rhymes, prayers or beloved children's books. These look especially precious when posted on the wall above a baby's crib or cradle and can set the theme for the whole room. Framed art. As in any room, framed art can be the best way to add interest and beauty to nursery walls. Art is always personal, so choose a piece or grouping that speaks to you and your family. A lovely print of a mother and child or a toddler with a stuffed toy might move you, or you may prefer something whimsical and bright. If you have not yet settled on a theme or color for your baby's room, the perfect piece of framed art could be your best inspiration. Quilts. You have probably contemplated in great detail, if not already selected, the bedding for your baby's room. What you might not have considered is using a pretty quilt to decorate the wall. Quilts make lovely wall hangings and, with elaborate patterns and multicolor pieces, they let you tie together several colors in the room. Find a large quilt that harmonizes with your nursery decor or arrange several smaller ones in a delightful wall grouping. Letters. It has long been popular to decorate a nursery with letters. Spell out your little one's name with lovely, polished silver letters hanging from ribbons above the crib or use bright, colorful letters to showcase the alphabet or your little one's initials. You can add letters to your child's nursery in a variety of ways, from hand-painting them right onto the wall to utilizing lovely lettered wallpaper.
