6 Alternatives To Obsolete Appliances
It's time to give your home a smart upgrade!
When the time comes to update your humble abode, it's best to start with the appliances before anything else—after all, these are the things that help us breeze through our daily tasks of cooking and cleaning. If you're currently on the lookout for smart gadgets to replace old trusty favorites (Do you still use a transistor radio or tube TV?), we've listed down a few pieces that we think are worth the investment. Check them out below:
From tube TV to LED
Tube TVs are notorious for picture and color distortion—not to mention they are quite clunky-looking. The new QLED TV, on the other hand, reproduces 100 percent color volume on a curved screen, and the end result is a breathtakingly lifelike picture that you can almost reach out and touch.

From DVD player to Netflix
Instead of having to rummage through a million compact disc cases, invest in a subscription to keep all your favorite shows and movies in one spot (this saves on unnecessary clutter, too). The best part? You can rewatch them anytime you want!
From halogen spotlights to energy-efficient lights
Old-fashioned halogen spotlights may be pretty, but they consume so much energy, emit excessive heat, and occasionally "explode" when overheated. LED (Light-emitting Diode) lights are the way to go these days, and this LED spotlight has a focused bright beam for accent interior lighting, but has a very low energy consumption and lasts up to 15 years.

From dot matrix printer to laser printer
The latest printers have a cost-effective refillable ink system and most important—Wi-Fi connectivity. This one has a built-in scanner as well, so you can have a complete office system.
