Actually, if they were to sell them at $25-$30 each, we should expect no less than this...

I have a 720p RCA POS wall mounted in my kitchen - for watching the news during dinner - paid $88 at Bad Boy on Boxing Day 2 years ago - if it dies after it's out of warranty - I got my money's worth.

I stand corrected - I read the Bolva specs - 90 day warranty - AVOID
Got the rca at a garage sale for $15. It's light as a feather. I thought it was a toy.

Instead of one 65" TV, I think it'd be way cooler to have 9 32" TVs.

Exactly this. Buying a 720p TV in 2019 at any price is like buying an old tube CRT TV at this point.

Dear lord... I had a higher pixel density on my monitor in 2000.
If you honestly can't tell the difference between a 4K monitor at the same size at 10 feet away and a 1080p monitor at 10 feet away then you
really need to see an optometrist.

The jump from 720p to 1080p is double the pixel count of 720p.
The jump form 1080p to 4K is four times the pixel count of 1080p

You pay more, you get more than better resolution. You also should get better backlighting, better color balance, and better blacks. These things you will notice before you notice the resolution on a TV, used as a broadcast TV. I have a Insignia 1080p 32 inch cheapy, and I get none of that. I notice the resolution when I hook it up to a computer, and relatively close to the screen, but watching broadcast TV, there is no difference. Other than the blurriness because of the poor quality of the 720p display, I would prefer 720p to 1080p, because the icons and task bar can be made to be bigger than 1080p. It is blockier, but it is not like I am using the TV as a monitor.

OTA tv is almost always broadcasting at 720p or 1080i. And, if you're watching a show from one of the Canadian tv station's websites, the video files only have a resolution of 720p most of the time. Until relatively recently, the CTV website only steamed videos at an even lower resolutions (I believe it was 540p). Having a 1080p or 4K resolution tv isn't going to do a thing for such activities.

My local No Frills has had TVs, sound bars, Samsung Tablets, sets of dishes, pots&pans, cast iron pots, small kitchen appliances, patio furniture, patio umbrellas and tons of other random non-grocery shit.
Some locations seems to sell out quickly, while others have this stuff languish for weeks until it gets discounted even more to clear it out.

Nope... Not going to buy it. Not risking my life for $88 no name TV. Then any hassle if it breaks/stops working.

Picked one up for a bedroom this morning. Talk about the opposite to the videos above. Went in a half hour after opening. None were out, so didn't know if they were gone or not. Workers had no idea about them. Finally took someone looking in receiving to see them there and brought one out for me. Definitely not a hot item lol.

Anyway, bird in the hand...I'll hold on to this until Black Friday. Wish I could fit bigger than 32" in that space!!

This varies greatly on what you're watching. When I watch sports, higher resolutions are immediately evident and preferable. When I watch most TV shows, I don't detect a noteworthy difference between 1080p and 4K. Similarly, 720p to 1080p is not a showstopper - though that change seems more drastic.

Ron.
As I had written in another thread (RE: laptops being 768p); that even some cheap cell phones are 1080p or better. It is simply disappointing and unacceptable that most laptops are still equipped with 768p. This should go with TVs. IMHO, the minimum should be FHD 1080p. We should all stop buying anything less than 1080p to send the signal to manufacturers / retailers.
