Re: TV QUESTION
Plain old flat screen LCD TV off the shelf at Wal-Mart. Easily bought, easily replaced. Actually my TV is really a 12vDC and used a big fat power supply. It's still a cheap power user. My DVD player is also from Wal-Mart. again, easily bought, easily replaced.
Our theory on electronics is that they are obsolete and designed to fail about every 4 to 7 years. Our TV is dying. We bought it in the fall of 2006. It will die soon and we will replace with a new cheapie one. We will pick it out just like we did this one. We look for the best looking picture from among all the TV's on display. And then we find the cheapest one that looks good in the size we want. Our DVD player is 7 yo and still going strong.
