Electronics aren't that expensive, most people should be able to afford a HD TV

Not even talking about homless, of cause, but how do you think, a Student who doesn´t get money from his Parents could afford a HD TV, for 3-400 Euros?

You can get a 19-25 incher at walmart for like 200 with a minimum wage job it would take a few months but it's doable.

Old tvs are bigger,more reliable and more appropriate for gaming.I have a hard time affording stuff so its good that its cheaper too.These tvs do better than most modern ones.Just because its new doesn't mean its worth it,macs for example.

Not really, most new games make it hard to read the wording unless you are playing in HD. Case and point, MoH's words are too small and blurry unless you're running HD.

New TV's are better at every aspect to be honest, they're even better for your eyes.

Can't agree with cocksucking OP though, calling poor people cheap *******.

Also another reason I don't want an HD anything My roommate has went though like 4 HD computer monitors in the time I've know him and my monitor that I got back in like 2003 still works perfectly fine just like the day I got it. Why the **** would I wanna buy something that is going to break that fast if I have something that works perfectly fine. I just don't see the point.

I've had my HD monitor for quite some years now and it still works perfectly fine except for that one dead pixel in the corner. To be honest I think your roommate just isn't careful enough with electronics and he just blames it on the manufacturer.

Also, the reason I got this HD screen was because my old monitor (A big one) randomly blew while using it. Literally, I was just browsing the internet and then *BANG*, the screen went black and smoke came out of it. Of course it didn't work anymore so there goes your theory about old stuff being better.

I have never once seen an old monitor of tv do anything like that yet I've seen probably thousands of HD things that weren't even a year old die and not just from my roommate but the amount of things that get returned to Walmart where one of my roommates works and best buy where I worked for a while every single day people bring in HD stuff that has just stopped working for like no reason and the **** isn't even old.

I'm pretty sure that also happened 20~ years ago when the big monitors and TV's were actually still being sold. Not many people will bother getting their 20 year old TV repaired now.

First I didn't say anything about the size people would bring back all sizes of **** that didn't work.
Second, I worked there like a year ago
Third, HD wasn't around 20 years ago.

So what exactly are you talking about??

"I've seen probably thousands of HD things that weren't even a year old die"
It's fair to assume you're claiming new technology is crap and it breaks faster than old technology.

It's actually pretty simple:
The same thing happened with those big TV's about 20 years ago when HD/Flatscreen TV's weren't invented yet. You just weren't there to see it so you automatically assume it didn't happen.

I didn't assume anything and I never once said they were crap and if/when my monitor ever brake I'll most likely get and HD one unless I can get a new old type of monitor . I personally just don't care for HD stuff the only thing I like that much about it is it wouldn't take up as much space.

Also, a lot of old technology dose last longer than new stuff anyone that was born like 15 years a go can see that but, don't mean the new stuff is bad.

As that might be true my TV gets turned on like once every few months most of the time to check the weather if the internet it down. To me I don't see the point in getting a new TV would just be a wast of money.

I have a 1976 Quasar Solid-State sitting in my closet, fully functional if a bit beat up, and a 2010 Toshiba flat-panel thing sitting in my basement with a dead mainboard.

If Toshiba somehow became the last electronics manufacturer on the planet I would live like a caveman. I ******* hate that company I wish I could set fire to their corporate headquarters. I bought a satellite a70 for my college laptop and that ****** would overheat and shut down every 20 minutes...do you know what it's like to write papers in 20 minute bursts. I complained and they basically told to bad sucks to be you.   
   
TL;DR I'm extremely butt-hurt over Toshiba.

The old Satellites were fantastic. I've got an obsolete one, with a Pentium III @ 900MHz in it. The thing is a TANK.
A newer Satellite that fell into my hands got so hot the GPU's solder points melted themselves and the thing died.

well the one I'm talking about was made around the end of 2005 with a pentium 4, and honestly I don't care if they make the best product in the world. In my opinion if you don't stand behind your product then your company isn't worth ****. Btw it wasn't like this was a problem that came up this was how the computer was delivered to me right out of the box.

I looked up the A70, and it's physical design is indicative of the ****** era. I would guess that your A70's internal fan was defective, based on what you said. There's a certain point in time where laptops just magically started being terrible. I avoid Acer like the plague after looking inside one of their 2007-ish laptops. I swear, the hinges were built with the express purpose of breaking.

I don't like the modern Toshiba company. The old Toshiba company though, the company that made my Satellite Pro 4600, they have my respect. It came out between 1999 and 2001, and it was planned out so well that were I to upgrade the RAM and the hard drive, I would be able to use it as a computer today. The thing came stock with a DVD-ROM drive. NOBODY had a DVD-ROM drive in frigging 2001. It's got every port that ever existed in 2001 except Firewire. And it's not afraid to crank up the fan when it gets hot, something modern laptops are typically scared-to-death of doing.

How so? For taking a chance that could have resulted in a free television? It wouldn't be the first fully-functional television I've brought home.

"******* future" was aimed at the fact that a television from 2010 died before it was two years old, while one from 1976 is still running just fine.

Of the twenty-plus televisions and monitors I've brought home, almost all of the CRT's have worked just fine, while all of the LCD's have been dead. The CRT's that didn't work just needed a stupid little fix, like removing a screw that had fallen through a vent and was shorting two contacts, or blasting the water out of it and letting it dry.

My point was that modern electronics can't hold a candle to the reliability of older devices.

It should have been all you needed.

1: Old TV still works.
2: New TV doesn't.
3: ******* future.

If you'd used your brain instead of sitting there and getting mad, you would have been able to put those together. ****, the post I originally replied to literally states it.

not every old tv works today and not every new tv breaks in less than 2 years...

just because you got one that was already broken doesn't mean every one of them will break.

i have 3 "old" ones and 2 of the 3 are broken and the one that isn't, is from 99 and makes buzzing noises (it would be already broken if i kept using it).

i also have 2 "new" ones, one is a Panasonic Full HD LCD that is already 3-4 years old and has no problem at all (daily used). other one is less than a year old LG Cinema 3D TV so we'll see about this one.

Concerning televisions, anything after 1995 I don't include, as it was after then that **** started getting ******.

I never said that every old TV works today, nor did I say that every new TV will break after two years, only that the likelihood of an elder TV outlasting the newer one is higher than otherwise, based on the fact that the CRT's I find in the street were thrown out because they lasted so long they became obsolete and the owner didn't know what to do with them, while the LCD's are there because they are dead.

The same story goes for most computers or other miscellaneous electronics I bring home. Laptops in particular. Of the six that have come into my possession, the oldest three work perfectly. The newer ones? Circa 2005 - 2007? Well, two melted themselves and the third effectively fell apart. The surviving three (the youngest being from the late Pentium 4 era) are so old that they are borderline incompatible with today's world. The oldest doesn't even have an RJ-45 port.

LCD monitors? Three of the new ones had stuck pixels out of the box. The fourth's power button has become one with the Auto Config button. The one I dragged out of a middle school took an elbow to the face, and the only trace of that is a slight bruise.

The 1959 Magnavox Micromatic phonograph in my basement? It sat under two feet of water for at least 24 hours during a flood. Works like nothing ever happened.

Consoles? Look at the Xbox 360. 'Nuff said.

I'm speaking from experience when I say that older electronics have a distinct tendency to survive their successors. They do die, that is inevitable. They're just harder to kill.

This is kind of how planned obsolescence of goods works. Companies intentionally make your product to break at a certain time and intend for you to buy a new one.

This is the market system(which I believe is obsolete).

Uh for the most part, no. Especially not for tech. Technology only becomes obsolete because things improve so rapidly. Intel, for example, produces a new processor roughly every year. The tech you used 5 years ago is nothing compared to what is available today.

There ARE some things that are prepared for obsolescence, but more often than not things just break down and get old. You can't expect a car to run forever.

I suppose the biggest support to your claim would be the disposable razor. Those are quite clearly sold as something that will wear down.
