To be fair, my previous vizeo 55" flat panel I replaced still works well enough for daily use.

And I bought it at a secondhand store for $120 several years ago after it had already been well loved.

I'm getting rid of it because

A) 4k is so much better than 1080p in terms of screen real-estate (and now that I have one - wow, clarity!)

B) The TV remote has been getting kind of dodgy because I drop it/step on it/say mean things to it

C) The picture on the TV occasionally ghosts especially if you have just switched inputs, requiring a power cycle to get back to normal

D) once in a blue moon, if you're playing a video game (and only seems to be with video games) the sound will cut out and maybe stay broken for half an hour, even if you turn if off and on again. Then it comes back

But the model is almost 20 years old by now so it is what it is.

I'd consider that pretty reliable. I'm giving it to a friend (he has yet to come get it) because he wanted a TV, and I don't want to wait until it dies so I don't have to be the one to take it to the dump. Laugh | :laugh: Same reason I sell off used cars before they stop running - it's easier than getting them wrecked.
