Personally, I think Vizeo brand at Costco is great (except they don't have those brand in Costco.ca. grrr), but you want a well-known brand. lol
I'm sure if you look for a bit, you can find Sony 50-55 inch LCD projection TV for about 1000 dollars. They are widescreen and all of them 720p/1080i. They are of excellent quality.
of course, you're getting a projection tv so you don't get to hang it on a wall or something, but to me, that really doesn't matter.
Finally!.. our old Sony Trinitron TV broke, for good, so we can finally get a new TV.
Since I know very little about TV's, coudld anyone suggest a good, but not extremely expensive, widescreen TV? The only parameters I can think of would be:
1. Cannot be over 1400
2. Should be by a well-known brand
I also remember Tom mentioning that having an HDTV without HD cable stretches the picture. I'd like to have an HDTV, but we're not going above standard Comcast cable.
