those Plasma would last years But aren't those Voltage guzzlers x years!
they say LED's are 70% less power hungry than those plasma's, so doing the math I think  even if you change LED TV's every 5~7yrs it's still a better option & you get the latest innovations.

Spot On! It is a Voltage Sucker  ;D

Luck of the draw

Its just a matter of luck sometimes, anyway, here's a nice story,
a couple weeks back, one of my 75" panel went supernova, its that one white light on the left side of the screen.
TV is about 5 years old, and yes, I bought the 5 years extended warranty, expiry is on June 2020

So I flied the claim to Best Buy, saying panel has a dead bulb probably or whatever you call it,
so they sent in a tech guy to confirm the problem, first protocol is of course, order the panel for replacement.
But after 2 weeks, tech guy called me up and informed na wala na daw stock na panel for this model.

Gave me a number to call, which is the department that handles exchanges.
Best Buy was supposed to do an exchange, but decided that it would be too much of a hassle for both of us,
they ended up sending me $3400 credit and told me that I can keep the TV,...

Sweet,..! My kids wouldn't mind having a 75" TV on their study room even with that blimp,
it only shows on bright scenes, but they wouldn't notice it, that's for sure,
amazing warranty service from the shops here,..!

Am ordering an 85Q70R or 85Q70T QLED as replacement for that one,...

My very first flat panel, a Samsung UA-32D5000, purchased back in 2011 from Sight & Sounds is still working fine. My parents are using it now as their bedroom set.

My LG 55" UH6500 4K UHD Smart TV, which was gifted by my brother just in 2017, conked out with an apparent panel problem last May 2019.

very similar story to mine

my first flat screen, a sanyo lcd-32k30 bought for ph18,000 as a class b from their warehouse sale around 2010 or 2011 has not made any visit to a repair shop. i still like how the cable hd channels look on this hd-ready only unit .

then my lg 43uh6500 first had back light discolorations on it's 21st month which was repaired under warranty. but by its 27th month 2 horizontal lines appeared which divided and delayed the images below each line...panel gone. so it seems lg's uh6500 series has a trend with its panel.

to me it looks like flat panels made pre-2015 are more reliable. i still recall sony 32in lcds during mid-2000s era costing upwards of ph50,000 but the significant price drops the past few years have made it easy now to replace one that goes bust in 2-3 yrs. its disappointing but i guess its the trade off to keep the innovations coming.

the 43uh6500 cost me 23,500 but wifey would not allow me to buy lg again, i'm still not sold on samsung, sony still cost 25-30% more, sharp/pana/toshiba don't have as much choices. so i'm taking the chance with tcl 55a8us at just 19,995 to replace the lg.

as a footnote...my sharp 21in x-bass crt (w/ separate powered sub-woofer) from 1997 is still alive and kicking despite several repairs over the past 2 decades (mostly during the last decade actually ) hehehe

9 yr old Panasonic FHD LCD - still going strong. never been repaired, still very good PQ (given this is a high end model). never felt the need to upgrade yet.

The current state of reliability of new TVs is making me think about getting one of those laser ultra short throw projectors instead of a flat panel.

Would they last longer, I wonder...

Wala yata problema sa mga earlier years na TVs notwithstanding what (decent) brand. Common ang anecdotal proof na matagal na ang TV nila na nabili nung 720p at 1080p pa ang affordable resolutions.
Yung relatively new production TVs ang mas mataas probability na magka problema ng mas maaga.
Na parang sadya din. Note the short 1 yr. warranty of Samsung.

My Pana 42PV80 is going 12 years this Dec. It lasted even longer than other TVs I bought over the years.

Deep blacks and realistic colors still giving me goosebumps when watching or playing.

Paired with an HK160 HT amp bought only weeks apart. Only the speakers that I used have changed.

Is it applicable that an electronic devices like tv's have a higher life span the more you use it? Like 5 hours average per day.

If not for the table under it w/ a vase, this TV would have called it quits. Luckily the table catch the left side, w/out it the whole thing would be crashing to the floor. The vase rolled off & broke. Nobody is using the room & during the ECQ just wanted to hang out in that room so the AC would also made to run & not being idle for a long time but to my surprise the TV was hanging already. Its really our weather I think too much heat & humidity crumbles the plastic materials & makes the rubbers so sticky. So sad until now I have to find time to look for a new bracket
