I DON’T NEED A NEW TV

Posting this to remind convince myself that i don’t need a new TV and that my 2020 85″ Sony X90H is still good enough even in 2024.

I’ll just get a discounted 83″ LG C4 or G4 from B&H like in January 2025, a year from now. Yeah.

Because there’s lots of other smaller things that i could get with the money i save NOT buying a new 83″ LG C3 (or 98″ TCL C755) TV right now.

Like a Steam Deck OLED.

Even though i already own a Steam Deck.

Or a Meta Quest 3.

Which, i actually already own (a 128GB Quest 3), but i want a 512GB one because i keep running out of storage on the 128GB model. Should have just gotten the 512 in the first place. I managed to somehow get by with 128 on the Quest 2 and Quest 1 but it’s not happening with the Quest 3 (Don’t get a 128GB Quest 3). I’ll hand down that 128GB Quest 3 to my dad.

Or i could get a new phone.

I’m still rocking a beat up 512GB Samsung Galaxy Note 9 from 2017, i think it’s actually time to upgrade that thing.

Or a whole bunch of other stupid little things i need want.

Oh plus i’m also still waiting to get invoiced by Cook and Becker for the sold out, limited edition of 30, Hand Signed Deluxe Yoshitaka Amano The Last of Us print that i managed to snag out of sheer luck.

Don’t tell my wife how much THAT cost.

I definitely don’t need a new TV right now.

  1. If I had to pick one thing out of that list, I’d buy the OLED Deck. But that’s coming from someone whose eyes are aching at the thought of trying to watch 83″ at once.

    Here’s an issue I run into… I buy things for my “man cave” that are awesome, but I spend all my time in the living room with my wife and pets. So that’s probably why I’d lean toward a handheld. I’d get more use out of it. Plus, that Deck OLED looks baller as hell. I’d have bought one if the screen was bigger. I’m enjoying my Legion Go quite a bit for the bigger screen and not having to dick around with Linux.

  4. If you buy an 83″ TV and a year later it’s got a dead pixel are you just fucked?

  5. yeah i’d be fucked.

    that’s one of the downsides of getting an OLED. fear of burn in and dead pixels over time.

    i’ve see a few display units in stores where there’s dead pixels.

    didn’t have or get any on the 65″ C1 that i used to own but i only had it for about 3 months before i sold it off.

    i had a dead pixel in my meta quest 2 and it bugged me like hell. i sold it after i got my quest 3.

  6. The algorithm says if I liked this post, I will also enjoy “Television show titles that might as well be nicknames for the penis” from July 31, 2002.

    The last two on the list were “The O’Reilly Factor” and “ALF.”
