It isn't that they break, they become outdated. I bought a 65" Olevia in 2008 for 2300, it was hot stuff in '08 but not so much now. The tech on my E60 is so far advanced over the 08 it's like watching a cave drawing compared to the E60. My other TV is an '07 47" Toshiba that I paid 1700 for and was damn glad to get it. Both of those old TVs work great and I can't wait to get them out of my house.
I expect in four years I'll be getting an 80" 4k for a couple of grand, they get old before they break. The days of keeping a CRT for 15 years are behind us.
