"Inflation takes a beating" when you buy GE according to a magazine ad for this model.  While GE could rightly claim to offer many more square inches of viewing area for about the same price when compared to their sets of two years prior, the crummy series-strung chassis in this and similar GE sets of 1951 was remarkably little changed from those found in their early compact sets.
