It is not necessarily clear in the description if these are the older model 7777s or the newer version. They may just be incorrectly using the old picture like some other vendors did for a while. The...

Well when you go in the stores, all they are pushing these days are those overpriced Ultra HD 4K LEDs. But I honestly think that regular HD cable and OTA antenna TV looks best on the basic 720p...
