When buying a new TV, look for new tech that will last a very long time like that found in Sony’s latest selection of televisions. Most people don’t purchase televisions frequently. We want the few that we do buy, to last a long time. As such, it’s best to choose from a list of the largest most up to date televisions available within your price range. The TV we are giving away in this contest, a Sony BRAVIA XR X95K 75″ 4K UHD HDR Mini-LED Smart Google TV, is likely going to be at the top of that list for many people.
How long should a new TV last
My living room television is very old. I bought it about twenty years ago. I found a good deal at that time on a very thin, forty inch, which at the time seemed huge, 1080p resolution Sony TV and have loved the image quality and performance ever since. In fact, the image seems just as good as it was when I bought it. I paid as much as I could afford on a TV at the time and feel like I got excellent value for my money.
I think that is the real barometer for how long a TV should last. I bought a 4k TV for my mother-in-law about 6 years ago and it stopped working after about 3.5 years. And it was could not be repaired! Obviously that set was a disappointment. It wasn’t a Sony, but I did replace her broken set with a Sony. The best part about this story was that I bought four-year Geek Squad protection, and it returned the full value of the set that broke, which I applied to the new Sony TV.
How to choose the best TV for your needs
Earlier this week, a friend asked for my help selecting a new TV for his home. I brought up the Best Buy online selection of televisions and explained the key factors he should consider, asking a few important questions. We narrowed down his options to a list of about a half-dozen candidates. Importantly, we started with brand: he said that he has always bought Sony and is most familiar with that brand. Apple users tend to stick with apple, Microsoft fans tend to stick with windows tech, Samsung fans stick with Samsung (admittedly I fall into this category for phone tech!) and Sony fans stick with Sony.
The second consideration I brought up with him was TV size. He explained that he measured the space on his wall where the TV will be mounted and didn’t think he had ceiling height for anything bigger than about 75 inches. The considerations we brought up then were between 72 and 78 inches: I suggested he get the biggest set he can accommodate for maximum enjoyment as long as he owns the TV.
Lastly, we talked about the newest technology and screen resolution. I explained that the newest tech is Mini-LED which is credited with producing an image that rivals an OLED screen. I explained how the image is created and the pros and cons of Mini-LED vs OLED. Read this detailed article to learn for yourself. I explained that either choice will be amazing for his home. Which one would you choose if you were him?
The newest tech is the Sony Mini-LED and you have a chance to win one just like those I was suggesting for my friend in this contest. We sent this TV for an honest review. So read that review then return here to enter the contest.

I have an open room so the Anti-reflective screen and wide 178-degree would be great.
and airplay as well.
I’d replace my 2008 kdr 46 ..ya its a sony and its lasted this long but. Its time to upgrade. But 14yrs is a crazy long time for a Tv to last Sony is a Sony..I’ll stick with Sony as the writer did.
This would be amazing to have such a large tv for a family room and have company/ family over!
Our family does a lot of gaming together, so resolution and size are #1 for us. Our TV is also our home theatre as we love Movie night in our house, so again resolution and size are important. Sony is the brand of TV we currently have, we are loyal to the brand because of quality and longevity. The fact that the mini LED is so comparable to the OLED is quite impressive!!
the Resolution and the refresh rate are most important to me for a clear picture.
