I have bought a 27" Sony Trinitron CRT TV for twenty dollars about a month ago. This TV is 13 years old. This TV has a excellent picture and sound quality. I play my Atari 2600 and NES on this TV. I also watch DVD's on this TV. I am 30 years old. I want to keep using this 27" Sony Trinitron CRT TV for classic video games until I die. Let's say in the next 1, 5, 10, 25, 50 years from now If my Sony Trinitron TV needs to be repaired or the picture tube needs to be rebuilt. Will there still be places in the world to repair or rebuild Sony Trinitron CRT TV's? I don't like new flat panel technologies to play my classic video game systems on. What is the life span of Sony Trinitron CRT TV's? In 50 years from now, will these TV's still be working? Or in the future, will Analog 4:3 Aspect Ratio CRT TV's come back into the production line for a very high expensive price for classic gaming use?
I hope I never have to make a switch from CRT TV's to modern flat panel TV's for classic gaming.
