    I know it's been a while, but this video was not uploaded at 16:9 4K. The source file is 2:1 4096:2048. However, we had to do an edit at some point to remove a piece of content within the video and it's caused it to be reprocessed by the Youtube Editor at 16:9. We've reported the issue to our rep.

      Chinese reasoning: 3 HDMI ports costs the same as 1 HDMI port, but helps to sell more TVs.
      American reasoning. Sell the base model with 1 port and upsell the customer to a more expensive model with 3 ports.

        I hate electronics waste too.. I bartered some computer work for a 40" tv that had been in a fire. The TV worked fine but the connectors in the back were rusted from being hit with a fire extinguisher. All of the them worked as well. As far as my monitors go, one I bought in 08 the other one I got for free when one of my customers upgraded theirs. My crash-box computer monitor I used for testing parts,cloning hard drives, etc.. i got from a thrift store for 15 bucks.. They're all still running strong.

          It was on sale for $100.00 USD at my local WalMart, and was less expensive than any other monitor I could find that wasn't postage stamp sized. Using it as a cheep monitor at a friend's house, that I can leave there, and not have to pack home every time I come to town (100 miles).

                  I still have an Element 40 inch in my bedroom that was bought from Walmart. It's only 1080P 60hz like the onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn but I find the panel to be very decent and speakers to be very well made as well. The stand however on mine seems to have been the only thing element truly cheaped out on. I screwed it n properly and yet it wobbles as if it's going to just snap. It hasn't yet and survived a big move and has been used for at least 2 years (Got it in September 2017). I'd say review it. It ran me only 150 bucks and although not a high end TV speakers are very decent and display seemed to be decent to me. I have no issues with it. But, then again I really only use it to stream live TV when I go to sleep. So, I do not look at it much. But, it's not bad for the price. I have watched a full movie on it and it displayed that very well. Sharpness is very nice on it. At least from my own perspective. But, I would say everyone's needs are different and should go with whatever works for them. I would not buy the onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn tv though. That thing is a total fail. My element at the same price point is definitely better then it.

                            thats not an old people connector

                            thats an f-type coax connector, used for hdtv and cable
                            still used in hotels and some houses
                            I still use it to transfer A/V signals by modulator to a tv thats too far for the other cable

                                  So I have this tv. After about 3 months Hdmi 1 and 2 stopped working so I'm using the 3rd Hdmi. Today I now have no volume 😿 this tv sucks and we barely ever watched it because we have tv's in our bedrooms. So disappointed.

                                            Hmmmm, historically ive gone used but with how cheap TVs are getting, i was able to spring for a 4k LG for about $350. A lot more than 150 but a TV is typically something you'll use for a long time. I'm still using my used 1080p tv for my son's xbox

                                                                                    I just got a Samsung 55 inch NU6900 series for $379. While watching sometimes a vertical bar about 3-4 inches wide pops up for a split second. Can you tell me what you think is causing that? thanks

                                                                                        This is making me reflect on the Insignia set I bought for cheap. My Apple TV 4K seems to blip out sometimes and loses audio. I wonder if it’s the TV’s fault.

                                                                                        The audio isn’t bad on my TV, though.
