Just got my Sony 75-940D a few months back and it was a HUGE investment for me. I expect (hope) it to last at least 10 years for me. It doesn't and never will do DV but that's OK, I'll never be moving up just to get DV.. So seeing as my TV cost right around 20X what the Sammy BD cost, yea whatever might happen to it, I consider it a throw away. I can only guess what TV tech might be offering in 2027 but I suspect if the combo of my Sammy BD and Sony TV are still running, they'll still be offering the same awesome playback they are today.
