My mi tv 55" has stopped working now ( not turning on with remote and button) after escalating complaint with cc, the service guy said we have to replace motherboard, which costs around Rs 11000, after this i searched twitter for motherboard problem withi and there were thousands like me who were facing the same problem.
Who will spend 11k for motherboard and no guarantee of that new motherboard too.
My sony tv 32" which i purchased 8 years back is still working fine as it was 8 years ago.
But this crap mi tv stopped after just 3 years.
Never ever go for these companies mi, realme etc.
Go for sony, samsung atleast they run for long term

P.s- just 2 weeks on DD back i was praising my tv and now this grin

TVs have a longer life span stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye.
I have 10-12 year old samsung 32" LED HD tv at home which runs on dth, still works just as fine.
Sirf dhool ghus gya hai peeche se and remote change sweat_smile.


Mi gives lots of features at low prices, so obviously there will be interior internals.

3 years is pretty long! I had issues of screen getting black spots after 1 year on VU. I had extra warranty and survived the blow a bit, got refund after depreciation. My friend’s screen had spots within an year and MI replaced it and then it again had issues, so it replaced again. But he also got the extra warranty as well.

Recently I bought a cheap Sansui because it was cheap for 4K 55 inch, but I got the warranty as I know it won’t last for long.

wrong, i know people having issues with them as wel.. Extra warranty for 3-4 years is the only saving grace nowadays.

It’s not wrong, but debatable bro.
My roommate has 1st gen mi android tv. It still works fine(was switched off for 1 year in during covid sweat_smile)
Colleague has 4year old sony bravia android tv 55". He also hasn’t faced any issues yet.
I guess it depends on luck,

Not the new 1s .

CRTV used to run decades. I recently sold my 20 year old CROWN TV
Plasma TV easy 10+ years
Old Samsung LCDs easy 10 years

New 4K TVs and all, any thing more than 3-4 years are bonus.

You can buy 3 MI tvs in the cost of 1 samsung/sony, same goes for mobiles. Better to use it for 3-4 years and replace with a new tv with advanced features/technology instead of sticking with the same (expensive) one for 8-10 years.

Absolutely, electronic goods are totally luck based. I had a Meizu phone which worked fine for 3 years before water got flashed over it.. my mother liked it more than Mi or Poco phones.

This is also a very good approach.
Buying high end samsung/sony tv doesn’t warrants that it won’t fail.
You’ll end up as a huge expensive worthless glass if high end sony/samsung fails.

Now-a-days Main aim of all electronics companies is to manufacture a product which will surely fail after 3-5 years usage
Else
Who is gonna buy and bring revenue into their pockets

they want you to change mobile every 2-3years and when such manufacturers make TV and other smart electronics they make it with similar mentality. it’s a different story for Sony and Samsung they are professionals.

i remember having Sony tvs not going bad for 20+ years.

That’s the reason I don’t any electronic item made by China-based companies (those whose origin is China) – because they have shitty attitude towards build quality & customer care.

I prefer to pay more for Korean or Taiwanese or Japanese companies and have peace of mind.

3 years and 3 months so far for my VU TV, working well. Except that stupid remote which stopped working within a year.

I have a background in electronics and let me tell you that motherboards in modern appliances are the most expensive part contributing to at least 30% of it’s price. It’s literally like a foundation of a structure upon which everything is built. Be it inverter ac’s or laptops, problems in motherboard will put a dent in your wallet.

It’s expensive to repair because it’s treated as a trade secret by manufacturers so it depends upon enthusiasts and 3rd party engineers to decipher and troubleshoot any issues.
