This week we got rid of our last tube TV's. Of all the electronics I have had over the years these TV's were the oldest and most sentimental (OK not really that sad)
The 27" TV was the oldest. I bought it when I went to college. It was breakthrough because it had "Stereo" sound. It served me well over the years.
The second TV was my first purchase with my first college grad, real world paycheck. I spent around $800 for it and it was a BUNCH of money.
When we built our house 9 years ago we purchased one of the first flat panels. So it took a decade to get rid of the old technology.
Guess I now know.
