I'm mostly the opposite. All of my eink ereaders have lasted well, but I think the majority of my devices die before I want to upgrade (TV, phone, tablet, headphones, computer, ...)

Same here. Well, my fridge and washing machine died. But I usually upgrade my ereaders, phones and computers every few years, and my latest TV is still going strong after 7 years (I rarely use it, so no need to upgrade there). As to headsets, don't own or use any.

It's been quite awhile since I've purchased a non-Amazon e-reader, and they don't release new models as frequently as they used to. I'm glad I got the latest Paperwhite; overall, it's the best ereader I've ever had. Mostly it lacks a couple of software features that I'd like to have (author grouping, TTS). But it might now be to the point where I won't buy another Kindle for years.

I am thinking about getting Pocketbook Era when it is available (TTS).

Our TV is probably a 10 year old model (42" LG plasma panel dumb TV, 720p). I'm interested in upgrading to another, slightly larger 4K dumb panel, but there aren't many choices, and they are all LED and not OLED. This looks interesting and quite affordable:

But how quality stacks up against other UHD / LED panels available in smart TVs is not clear.
