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

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.)

  1. 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!

  3. I'll go down to the local tip and get on for free! Then sell it for $1000 and buy two plasmas.
