And lastly TVs are getting newer tech in them every generation and trying to sell one second hand is like selling a receiver. You won't get sh*t for it - projectors are usually not too bad in that regard. In the future there will hopefully be paper thin 120" OLED screens that that you just roll out on your wall like a projector screen. The trick will be to make it sound transparent lol
This is the true promise of OLED in my mind: a flexible display rolled into a tube which I can easily transport and then unroll onto my wall. It sounds a little science fiction and maybe it is but the theory is sound with what product demos LG has shown in the past. The issue with flatscreens is they become fairly unwieldly in the largest sizes. While a lot of my friends tease me for what they perceive as the great effort of mounting a projector to a ceiling joist and hanging a lightweight screen on a wall I assure them it was far easier than carrying an 80"+ flat screen through my house and then mounting that to a wall. In fact: you could do the projector install all by yourself-- something you can't say for a flatscreen any large than maybe 50" in size.
What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...
