New functionality is still a selling point, but the manufacturers now have a trickle-through of 'exciting new' functions which...aren't.
We've had so much over the years, and much of it never had content. How much truly HD content is there out there today? (and why is it that my old CRT TV could disply a higher resolution from the computer than my new and very expensive (thank God for the extended warranty that brought it for me!) "HD" TV?) Screen resolutions seemed to do a huge drop not long before "HD" came out.
Couple of years back "3D" was the big thing.. And the content for it would come, just buy the TV's...
Now, well I am wondering if 4k is already dead and buried, certainly haven't seen anyone advertising it here for many months.
So.. Should I buy new&shiny every year or so like some of my friends do, in the hopes that the promised content will finally show up [briefly looks away to watch airborne pigs], or should I wait until there is some content that is soooo good that I just can't bear watching it on some less-than-new TV?
Given the quality of so much TV today, you really do have to push the envelope with the content for me to buy new. I don't care what the picture quality is like, if a show isn't worth watching for the overall content, I'm not wasting my money.
