Interesting. This is actually a Hitachi 51F510 51" rear projection TV.
You may be correct on that. However that's 13 years old and we're very
much ready to get back the insane room real estate that gargantuan
thing takes up ;). It really is huge, and our living room is not.

I feel the same way you do about "smart" TVs...don't even get me
started. None the less, I'm looking very seriously at the LG OLED55B6P
55-inch. Pretty awesome for sure.
