TCL televisions. 55″ the most common.
I’ve heard good things about the TCL brand. I only know one person who has one though. Maybe that says more about me being a TV snob than knowing the value of a dollar?
I grew up with a dad who was a media enthusiast. We had several televisions in the house. Lots of record players and a Sony reel-to-reel tape recorder that I was told never to use. Bad daughter that I was, I did use the tape recorder. I inherited all the reels (which, as you might imagine being 1960s vintage, are brittle.) I have the reel-to-reel player too. Just haven’t gotten around to seeing if the tapes can be remastered or saved. Anyone know?
I think my first big girl TV was a Sony, then the default best brand. Expensive for a Vineyard worker bee earning very little money. At one point I bought several Sharp TVs when they came out with a flat screen. They were stupid expensive to the point I wondered why I bought them. I pawned off the giant tube tv the Sharp replaced on an unsuspecting soul. It weighed a ton. I still have one of those Sharp TVs, probably 15+ years old now but it keeps on ticking. No sense in replacing it.
The default brand for us now is Samsung. The price is right. The quality decent enough for me. Once the new family room is built it will get a big flat screen. Probably in the 50″+ range. Not there yet to start choosing the brand.
Happy September 1! Rainy in my neck of the woods. Good day for bill paying and reading and not much else.
