The biggest expense for LCD TVs for a long time were the panels. Once large enough panels could be reliably and cheaply manufactured the price point of 43”-55” TVs plummeted.

Also, even the cheapest TV now is often “good enough” for many people. Especially when you use a Roku stick, Amazon Fire TV or Apple TV with it.

The other TV is from 2011 and works well enough but doesn't have the Roku stuff.
I'd have to spend more (at least for a stick) to begin to get up to date.
ANd I get that, too, but we're at the point now that a 1080 TV is still going to look great in 10 years. Not suggesting you spend $1,000 on a TV. My main living room TV was a $299 TCL 4K TV. Looks and works great. But my $700 720p Panasonic plasma TV bought when TV's were still sold ... with anything less then 1080p (lol) still looks perfect in our bedroom. I am pretty sure someone will inherit that TV somedays. The cheapest TV in our house that has now been put in the spare room because the picture has asome wierd burin in dark issue on part of the screen (not noticeable all the time) was a, not even kidding, $220 Westinghouse. LOL The only TV I've ever had fail like that.
