    Sorry - i am wrong - its a 37inch and its HD - what more can anyone want ?
    Probably a up to date TV when you bought it. But CRTs were long lived, we were not sure how long these plasma or LCD TVs would last.
    I would think the majority of cheap TVs would be designed to fail after five years or so.
    A 37" TV is quite small these days, I will buy bigger on my next TV, I struggle to read and writing.

    So - redundancy in items......

    A boiler with a pilot light may work fine but use up money because the pilot light is on 24/7 - and yes, look at Energies Forum for examples.

    Stand-by is welcomed and really mostly not thought about but depending when your 'stand-by' item was manufactured - how much electricity is it using?  https://www.itv.com/news/2022-04-27/the-devices-you-should-turn-off-at-home-to-save-hundreds-of-pounds

    The above weblink is a bit scare mongering - if you have a recently bought device it may use very little on standby but honestly - do we buy latest device if the one we have is working fine?

    I can't remember how long we have had our TV, I do remember it was a struggle to get one which was small enough for me to accept it in our lounge! It is 'only' 37" so I dread having to replace it, we'll be keeping it until it dies ...
