We should say goodbye to old tv or shall we say the CRT televisions, not only they have higher radiation but at the same time it will cost us too much electricity.  Though we cannot deny that new tv models nowadays are not that cheap but yet it can give us good output, better sounds, less radiation and less electricity consumption.
