Try buying an analog (non-HD) TV and trying to get 15 years out of it
in the US. It'll make a fine monitor for a cable box or a DVD player
or a VCR, but it won't work as a TV after 2009.
Would that not be "obsolete" well before 15 years?
To me, certainly. But then I regard any analog TV as obsolete already, even
if it is still in production.
And I don't know anybody trying to put a hard drive in an analog TV. It
really serves no useful purpose.
