When I bought our last TV a couple years ago, I was amazed how dumb TVs have for all practical purposes vanished from the market. One way was to pay well over $1,000. The other was to get a commercial monitor. But then those things are not necessarily designed for quality home viewing so the screen specs and viewing angles are not as good. It’s sad that Grandma Sally and Uncle John have no idea what’s going on when they buy a “smart” TV.
