    I have always loved SONY CRT TV's back in the day. My brother has two newer SONY sets and the picture looks like you are watching thru a very high quality closed circuit TV. Something is "too real" about the picture. I can't place my finger on it. I'm wondering if he has all the menu features turned on or something effect wise.

    Significantly reduced color fidelity.

    I am all for cutting edge technologies as long as they don't detract from other critical areas. Eagerly awaiting true 4k non-pixel shifting laser projectors to enter the realm of "affordable". And still waiting for VR to really take off without just gimmicky "you're in VR!" type of apps.

    He probably has sharpness jacked up and that awful "motion blur reducer" thing activated - that gives movies the "soap opera effect"...

    I see LG got a new 77" TV.
    My next one will be larger than my 55".
    A lot of blu rays/films come letterboxed tbat reduces the size of picture image on a larger screen. 100 inch maybe a wee bit ambitious. But, definitely a larger screen next purchase.

    I'm very doubtful of that. I would expect to see at least some prototypes of 8K.

    I had a 32" Sony XBR CRT, it had an amazing picture and was still working when I finally retired it after 10+ years of heavy use. It had decent sound too along with wireless headphones, PIP, and digital screen zoom/freeze. Was probably one of the best CRT TV's back in its day.

    I know a guy who has had a Plasma TV with heavy use for more than a decade, and the thing still plays like new. Same with my sister's Sony Plasma, the picture quality is fantastic. I thought plasma TVs weren't supposed to last very long.

    I've still got a 34" Sony CRT in my bedroom! Beautiful HD picture and great sound. Sony's last great tube tv, I'll keep her til she drops!;)

    No reason why plasma's shouldn't last long. Certain things are affected by long term use, such as a dropoff in brightness and saturation (compared to as new), but as this is a gradual degradation over years, most people won't notice it (or will crank up the brightness slightly to compensate). The other possible issue might be burn-in, but unless you're playing games 24/7, it's usually not much of an issue (especially if you run a screen-wipe every once in a while).

    Our Panny plasma is fantastic and no problems after 8 years. We are not heavy TV watchers, maybe 1 hour a day average.

    My last-generation Panasonic plasma is still going strong. I kinda wish it would go south as I'd like to go 4K, but it's nice not to have to spend the money.

    My Panasonic TC-P50G25 from 2010 is still kicking. Looks fantastic. When it dies, I'll go to the LG OLED65C7P or equivalent.

    My Panny is five years old apart from the remote sticking ( just BD buttons) all is tickity boo. Likewise I'll have to wait till mines die till I get the most affordable best which could be in a few years. Be interested in what's out there in the 2020's. Definitely a larger screen at least 75".
