$1,000 For An LCD/Plasma TV Or $1,000 For A Retro B&W Model – You Decide

By Andrew Liszewski

Listen, I like retro hardware as much as the next guy who has a closet full of old-school gadgets and electronics, but I also have a pretty strict budget when it comes to adding to my collection. So while this reproduction of a 1960′s era Doney TV that was originally designed by Richard Sapper and Marco Zanuso might be oozing with retro charm, I just can’t see myself dropping over $1,000 on a set that will probably not even work once the digital switchover is complete here. (The site claims that Brionvega has equipped the TV with the newest technology, but I somehow doubt that includes a digital tuner.) But if you’d rather spend your money on a 14 inch B&W CRT than a 40+ inch plasma or LCD model, the Doney TV is available from Connox for about $1,072. (Though they’re ‘out of stock’ at the moment.)

    OK–I'm with you. Retro is cute and all but there's no way I'd pay that kind of money for a dinky little TV like that. Anyone who buys this has waaaay too much money!
