Best 36-42'' HDTV under $2k?

by philsmith / March 21, 2006 11:09 PM PST

Unless someone can convince me to wait, I'm ready to take the plunge and upgrade to HDTV.

Still reading up on options, features, etc. but currently I am leaning towards plasma rather than DLP or LCD.

Still don't understand all the jargon but the World Cup is approaching and I want to get my system sorted out so that I can watch it all in HD.

FYI--I currently have DirecTV and run all my video through my stereo.

Just wanted to see what folks who have more knowledge of the product lines would recommend.

Thanks for your recommendations.

A good reliable tube 36" Sony, awsome picture quality for about $700 or less only problem they are heavy and have a deep cabinit but should give you great service. Also you must upgrade your Dish to a hi-def system and make sure you feed your t.v. with a h.d.m.i. or d.v.i. cable then run your audio straight to your amp Yopur old amp probbably wont have d.v.i. or h.d.m.i. switching Direct t.v. will charge you about $10.00 extra for the hi-def package and its well worth it good luck stewart

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
