Displays and Projectors : Buying a high-definition TV is wasting money

Buying a high-definition TV is wasting money

There are crowds of people here who think that buying a high-definition TV is wasting money. The main reasons are:

- Why should you buy a new expensive TV if you have a good old CRT, which is reliable and can catch TV channels perfectly?

- Don't you know that watching a big-screen TV (by "big screen" they mean something larger than 30") is very harmful for your eyes?

- Don't you understand that LCDs can operate for a very short period of time after which the picture gets very dim and unclear?

Does anybody here on IMDb agree with these reasons?

Re: Buying a high-definition TV is wasting money

The first two are stupid.

1) The reason you buy an HDTV is for better picture. Your CRT may still work fine, but the resolution is still crappy.

2) So I guess going to the theater all your life has been a risk in eye health? Please... tvs do not harm your eyes, no matter how big they are.


The third one may have some merit, but life span of tvs isn't a big concern, IMO. Not only are they getting better in that department, but when we're talking about 10 year life spans of tvs... how often do you keep a tv for more than 10 years anyway?
It's not a waste of money if you got 10 years of use out of it.
