Facebook just reminded me (facebook feature where they show you photos you posted in the past) of a picture i took with my cousins and brother playing XBOX in our old house. The TV on the wall was a Samsung 42" that we paid just over $2000 for using my cousins Best Buy discount.

That pic is from 10 years ago! When we moved i gave the TV to my brother and he still has it and it still looks and operates fine. Then i started thinking about all of the TV's i have installed over the years with very few being replaced.

How old is the oldest TV you own? What kind of TV is it?

We only have 1 TV in the house (people think we are weird because of that) and it's a 2008/2009 Mitsubishi 52" Diamond LCD. It has a great picture but I think my cost back then was about $2600!

Loewe Aconda 9383 in piano black. Power supply is shot. It belongs in the landfill. But I keep saying I will fix it. I think it was new about 11 years ago. Not that old really. I only have one other TV. Panasonic 55UT50 plasma.

50" Kuro. Sold it to a client just before Pioneer pulled out of video. Client kept it about a year, then upgraded to larger tv and told me to take the Kuro since I liked it so much.

I still have my first Plasma!
LG 50PX5D was around $3300 DLR cost at the time(many years ago).

It was shuffled to the shop a few years ago and still works but boy,is it ever HEAVY!!(not to mention a little homely!)

The other six in the house range from about 8 years old to current.
Every day is a good day.......some are just better than others!

Dang, I feel bad telling people I have 6. 16? Really? My two biggest progects only had 12 each. And those were 14,000 sq ft homes owned by people that could afford helicopters.

Fins I just did a house last year, that was 7,000sqft. One of the many things I had to do in this home, was a video distribution system for 25 TVs (that includes 1 out by a pool 300+ feet away). I've sold them 16 LG TVs so far of various sizes, more this coming year.
You got to step it up man :)


For me:
I have one the 1st HD 42" Fujitsu plasmas in daughter's bedroom. I think it is from 2005-2006, so about 10 years old. Humming along just fine and still looks pretty good considering.
My main TV is a Panasonic 58" plasma about 3.5 years old (don't remember the model, but the high-end one at the time). Looks great and I just finished re-calibrating it (delta errors are going up).
And there is an LG 32" (full 1080p model) in the boys room.

I have a few:

65" Panasonic PDP that's maybe 4 in the Family Room.

47" LG LCD in the Master Bedroom that's probably 8.

42" Panasonic PDP from 2005 in the Garage (cost me a $60.00 repair).

32" 2003 Zenith LCD that I picked up from LG when they did the annual Sam's Club show in Atlanta in the Master Bath.

32" Element, floor model from Wally World last year, in the Kitchen.


Beach house:

50" LG PDP from around 2008 in the Living Room.

47" LG LCD from around 2009 in the Sun Room.

42" Panasonic "hospitality" units in both bedrooms, I picked up from the Almo end of year blow out, 3 years ago ($175.00 each).




One of my clients had the honor of buying the first Pioneer PDP in the area. His cost was 19K, and I made 5K on the sale. Still working and looking pretty good as well.

Man, those were the days.. :-)
