I'm asking because it seems like people here get rid of TV's like they do computers. Every year or every other year replacing them for the next latest model. That's a lot more trouble than just getting a new computer. I come from a world where it's commonplace to keep a TV at least 10 years without even entertaining the idea of something new.
Well a site like this is primarily for hardcore A/V enthusiasts who always want the best gear as their main hobby is calibrating and tinkering with their gear to make sure they're getting the best possible picture and sound.
Obviously, that's very different from the average joe, or those of us here who just use the site to make more informed purchases when we upgrade TVs every 5+ years etc. Not everyone is into A/V enough to shell out the money for top of the line equipment, much less to upgrade frequently. But sites like this are still useful for someone like me who wanted to come and read up and figure out what the best TV I could get for my budget was, get some info on tweaking settings on the one I went with etc. So the site is by no means only for A/V diehards. But things like upgrading often etc. are going to be way more common than the average on a site like this due to the nature of the community.
