We have a big loss in our family.

Our late CRT. Cats sold seperately.

Our late CRT. Cats sold seperately.

All you see now is a single scan line. The television our family purchased right before we moved to America and working trouble-free for 18 years has finally hit by faulty steering coils (yes, I just looked it up). Back in 1991, we purchased this 32 inch Trinitron for around $1000. For the same amount of money today, you can get a Bravia 40 inch widescreen LCD.

So it’s time to find a new TV. With my eye for quality product and our family’s overall cheapness, hopefully we will get a good deal on a 52 inch 1080p device.

Update:
Women and minorities hardest hit. One, the Chinese tradition of eating dinner while watching TV has been temporarily disrupted. We grabbed an old 24 inch set from the basement and use that. Considering this American Idol season, my mom isn’t going to put up with a tiny TV in the living.

    We have the 29″ model, also bought in 1991 (or was it 1990?) Also the stand, just like you have.
    It still delivers a perfect picture but the sound is so-so – easily overcome. We have had really good service from this magnificant TV, but it is now back in its original box and ready for a new home as we have upgraded to a widescreen LCD TV as all the channels we now watch are digital. Pity we can't economically send it to you – if no-one in Denmark claims for free it within two weeks it will go to the pre-loved TVs last resting place.

    Thanks, but we too upgraded to something bigger and more 1080p. Though I doubt this new flatscreen will last as long as the Sony, I'm quite okay watching hi-def right now.

  • Mike

    Yes, so are we – so far anyway! Although the picture is absolutely no better than the Sony.
    When I offered the Sony on a local website for free collection by anyone interested it was gone inside a half hour! So I've done my bit for the environment today. Kept it off a scrap yard in West Africa for a few years yet. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. Cheers. Mike

    Yup. My grandpa Bought A sony triniron back in 1999, a 32 inch, I heard yesterday it went out with a dead picture tube last x-mas. Trinitrons are still the best.

    Hi! I live in Tunisia and we had the exact same télévision set that lasted longer than yours! My parents bought it in 1992 from Muscat (Oman) and it took it last breath last month! 24 years of loyal services! Before we take it to the trash my sister insisted on keeping the remote control as a souvenir (yep!) and my dad thougt that the giant loudspeakers could be usefull so he took them off! Of course I loughed at them (A LOT!!) but now a month later I’m googling “TV Sony trinitron 1990″ so I guess I miss that TV too!!
