I’m a tech-savvy guy, and tend to talk a lot about the latest and greatest products. While I try to keep my own collection of gadgets up-to-date, there’s just no way to stay on top of everything. I keep telling myself that one of these days I’m going to take the plunge and buy and HDTV. Unfortunately, when I finally do splurge on the TV of my dreams, there are plenty of upgrades I’ll need to do it justice. One such device is my Xbox 360. I picked mine up before they started putting in standard HDMI ports. Thankfully there’s an adapter out there that’ll easily upgrade my box.
While it seems like a great idea, it shares the same issue as the wireless adapter for the 360: it’s too expensive. Sure, call me frugal, but since the newer 360’s come with the HDMI port standard, you’re almost as well off trading in your old one and spending your money buying a whole new console. If you don’t want to go through that much trouble, you can pick the adapter up for $90.
