    :bigcry:

    Was watching and heard a very loud pop and the screen went black. It was literally as loud as a firecracker and I almost shit my couch.

    The old girl lasted 6 and a half years so I guess it lived a good life but it sucks that you can't get plasmas anymore.

    The closest things are OLEDs so I went out and got this. Its not 4k but 4k OLEDs are stupid expensive and there's nothing out for 4k anyway. Looks great and at least it won't heat my whole house like the plasma did.

    Too bad your place didn't catch on fire during the incident, trapping you inside.

    Shit, if you don't wanna fix it you can sell the boards on eBay for some good coin.

    Congratulations! That's a super nice TV. I learned about OLED because I watched the video. I'm going to read more about it tonight.

    IMO. There's no reason to own 4k unless you need to sit close to the screen. From this point forward, increasing the definition is a projection systems concern.
