This is us, when they are dying. Got 2 new ones (4K) 60 in the last year. One old one was 10 years and the other 9. Don't watch them that much. I could careless about having the latest electronic when the old one works just fine. And I am not fixing them either.

I had a cell phone for 9 years, When I went for the Iphone 6s, the salesmen said I have never seen one of these. ha

Well, I had a 24" Sony and when it quit, never got a new one. That was 12 years ago.

My main TV is a 46 inch Toshiba that still works perfectly after 7 years, so there is no reason to replace it. I see people jumping on these 4k TVs even though there is very little 4k programming offered right now. So no reason to pay a premium for that technology.

I have a 46" Sony that is still working great. Sure it's a dumb TV, but I bought a Roku stick and now I don't need to spend money on a new TV when this one works great. Unless some REALLY great technology comes up that I HAVE to have, I will watch this one until it dies.

I have a 43" Samsung flat screen that's 10 years old. Works great, and no plans to replace it unless it blows up.

I think I am on TV #6. I am in my 60's. For my main TV in the LR I think it is #3. The only time I got rid of a TV that was still working was when I moved across the country.

I just got rid of my black and white Hitachi 12 inch. I hadn't used it since the digital conversion. My other TV is breaking and I need to replace it, like yesterday. It's a 16 year old Sony. Not very big either. It's going to die any day now. I don't know how to use the new digital ones. It will be a learning curve.

42" Samsung flat screen that is 4 years old.

Prior to that, I had the old CRT TV from 1997 to 2013. Was still working when I finally joined the 21st century and upgraded to the Samsung.

It's still around. Certainly not at the level it once was.
