Buying a RCA like mine, might last you 3o years. My father bought a tube TV in 1954
he got rid of it in 1985, it was the black and white down the cellar. Do the math how long did my fathers Admiral last with a 4 kid family?
The F38310 is a tube set that comes out as a 16 X 9, just like my fathers tube set came out as 4:3. They are no different either you get a good one or a lemon just like a $30,000 car.
I will take a tube over a rear projection as the guns have to be replaced, much more the TV tubes ever have to. Your D-ILA or L.C.D. have a running time the type of lamp will burn and burn out needing replacement. I hope this helps.
