50-100k hours how long is that ?
So you could be waiting a long time to upgrade from tv system failure.

8760 hours in a year. So if it's running 24/7 that could still take awhile. :p

We have a 10 year old Vizio in the exercise room, still running fine. Anything competently built these days should last a long time. Even if it dies today it'll be peanuts to replace since TV'S have gotten so cheap.

I had a three year old LCD die with lines in the display. It had 30 days left on the warranty and was then upgraded to a 4K. Both the original purchase and the upgrade were over $2k. That TV died in November 90 days over the three year warranty was up, due to circuit board failure. It was just replaced with a 4K UHD model for $700. I really wanted to upgrade the size, but it was a significant jump to almost $2k for another three year run. A close friend’s TV died in three years too, so based on my experience 3 years.

I have a 10 year old Olevia 42" (they've been out of business 7-8 yrs). Use it 4-5-6 hours a day, (I'm retired with lots of free time!) Starting to get wide bands slightly darker than the rest of screen. I have a hardware media player with which I have a 'slide show' of the basic black, white, red, etc etc colors for adjusting various 'picture' settings. This is where I can actually see the bands, tv/movies, I cannot distinguish. Havent found one that I like the image quality as much as mine. Sound died years ago, so its just a monitor, (use AV rec), CC stopped long ago, but cable box has its own CC settings, & subtitles on movies,

My Sammy 52" LCD is pushing 13 years, my Sammy 26" is pushing 15 years.

Let me put that into perspective.....I bought that 26" Samsung LCD used for $600! My coworker had it maybe a year and he paid $1200 for it!

Prices have dropped.

my 7 year old Samsung died a couple weeks back. Best Buy guy said 7-10 years is all you should expect. Throw away society .........

Math, meet Noob. Noob, meet math...

100,000 hrs (lifespan of tv) ÷ 24 hrs (1 day) = 4167 days (rounded up).

4167 days ÷ 365 days (1 year) = 11.4 years.

There ya go. Hope I did that right... lol. :p

My old Vizio from Costco which I picked up in 2010 is still going strong. It got passed along to my youngest daughter & her hubby when my wife giftedit to them without my consent. I replaced it with a 4K Samsung. :)

Maybe that was her thinking in the first place, getting a 4K.:D

Maybe our esteemed group is taking this question from the wrong point of view.
Perhaps you really WANT to upgrade and just need an excuse like the TV is wearing out.
In that case, its my advice and caution that you upgrade ASAP. That old TV is probably dousing you with enough radiation to cause early forms of dimentia. Get over to your favorite outlet and get something new and trim and with all those snazzy stickers calling out features you never heard of before all over it.
Its a health issue after all.

Our Samsung is about 4 years old, and I can see the colors fading,and blooming of the whites now. I think it is going to need to be replaced this year.

My Samsung LED is 11yrs old and is just now having issues (vertical lines, traces are delaminating most likely). Went to buy the replacement QLED and they were sold out :(
