It would be too big for our lounge room I think.
But, the real reason I wouldn't buy one is that it is TOO DEAR!
How long would it last???? 5 years, 10 years?????

The prices come down after enough people buy them. We could buy our current TV now for less than a quarter of what we paid for it.

My flatscreen Samsung packed it in earlier this year after 8 years. I suppose it could have been fixed but I bought a new one for a quarter of the price of the old as Perri said - and this one is smart too! \:D/

The old one went to the tip with so much other electronic waste. Is this going to be our next world 'nuclear waste' type disposal problem?

I took a lot of old tech stuff to the tip this year, they had a special bin for E waste, no charge
Don't know what happens to it from there.
I put old tvs, pc's, monitors and printers in there. no one arrested me. :lol: :lol:
I feel i'm slipping behind in the race, my old LG is not smart but is full HD LED.
The Sony OLED keeps coming up my facebook feed, along with the 2018 harley davidson softail motorbike.
Can't decide which to choose. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I take my e-waste to the depot, too. I believe it's sent overseas to be stripped and precious metals removed.

I've read some disturbing stories about overseas recycling of electronic equipment. Methods used to retrieve precious metals are dubious to say the least.

Our son moved to Tassie because of his job, but said he enjoyed the cooler climate.

One thing about Tassie is it's rarely humid which I give thanks for and when it's very cold the days are clear and sunny. Suits me nicely :icon_biggrin:

I missed the whale today. That beach is just 5 mins from me.

Bought a Samsung smart TV a few months ago..... I resented at the time, the pushy salesman convincing my wife that it was streets ahead of the much cheaper Hisense that I wanted.
I'm so glad my wife won...... the Samsung is truly magnificent !
.....and the sound quality equally magnificent which is something lacking from cheaper TV's.
The Samsung cost almost twice as much as the cheap Hisense but absolutely worth it ! :twocents-mytwocents:

There are anecdotal reports of occasions where a wife has been right. This is the first direct evidence I've received of this phenomenon being confirmed.
