PAOC W-UNIONTOWN, PA., TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER I, IM7 Sharp Shopping Is The Time Ripe For A Color Television? In the good old days when the neighbor with a boob tube entertained a constant stream of TV-less friends, color was a gVeam in some designer's eye. Some middle oldies even remember a neighbor who used a special tinted film over the tube front to turn the 100 per cent black-and-white programming into "color." Times have changed, television sets have changed and so has television programming. Except for an occasional movie in black-and-white, almost all day and night-time shows this fall and winter will be telecast in color. However, a high percentage of set owners won't enjoy the refinements in cdlorcasting developed in the last few years. According to industry spokesmen there still is reluctance to invest $350 or more for color television. A sampling of potential color television buyers indicates why. A frequent comment is that "I've seen color shows on sets in a store and in a friend's home and I haven't seen good color yet." Another is "I'm waiting for the prices to come down." Noting the general mood of a high percentage of consumers, the Television Manufacturers of America Co. put some basic answers to consumer questions in a booklet. For example, does a color set last as long as a black-and-white? Based on accelerated life tests, average life is about the same as a black-and-white set-eight years, the TMAC reports. Other comments Include.: Will the prices come down or go up for color television sets? Industry surveys indicate the price of color television will remain at its present level for at least a year or two. Why are color sets more expensive? Components used in a color set cost approximately four times that of a black-and-white set. The average color set uses 25 tubes in its chassis compared to about 15 in a black-and-white. Direct labor to assemble a color set is about three times that of a black-and-white. Sires and portability of the sets alsn enter into a decision you purchase. Are portable color sets lower in price than larger screen consoles or combinations? According to the industry, no. Picture tubes for small screen portables are usually as high, if not higher, than the picture tubes used in larger screen consoles. The chassis price, on both is essentially the same. This changes, though, if you want cabinetry to include a record turntable and amplifier. This increases .the cost by about 25 per cent over a straight console television. An interesting point that many don't consider at the time of purchase is the resale value. Dealers and financing institutions polled by the TMAC on this say a color set two years old has a fair market value of 50 per cent of the wholesale price as compared to about 25 per cent of a black-and-white Ann Fartuch To Raymond The Cathedral of St. Catharine of Siena, Allentown was the set ting Saturday, Sept. 2 for the wedding of Ann Fartuch and Raymond W.
