Tim> After 17 years, my venerable 27" Panasonic tube TV finally died.
Heh... my 32" JVC tube is still going strong... though relegated to
the basement now...
Tim> Now... what to replace it with?
What devices do you have hooked up to your TV? I assume blueRay or
DVD, but anything else?
Personally, I'd probably skip or not use any of the smart TVs since
they seem to get hacked or broken after a few short years, esp when
the vendor turns off the website supporting them. Or stops updating
the Netflix plugin, etc.
I've got a Sony 42" LCD from 2007 which is working great. Hooked upto
a Tivo and DVD player. So for me, getting more inputs would be a big
thing, so then I could try running a ChromeCast or someth other type
of system on a stick. Basically, keep the TV as dumb as possible, so
that the sucker doesn't screw you over.
