The way that a lot of tv's are so cheaply made now a lot of failures are occurring very early. My thoughts on this is that the Manufacturers would rather see prices of $1000 or less and have someone have to replace every couple years. A lot of them probably don't mind their products going south so early, because they know no one is going back to a smaller tv.

I imagine I will have my CRT RPTV for years to come. They're still easy to have services also.
