Should you buy a new TV this EOFY sales time?
While the TVs featured above might provide a great bargain this end of financial year, it’s important to consider if you really need a new flashy TV, or if your current one works just fine. The rapidly changing technology environment does impact TV prices drastically, with outdated models getting cheaper by the dozen. The more advanced models still sit above the $5k mark but you can score a good deal if you shop around this financial year. But a great deal is only a great deal if you actually need what you’re buying!
