Just make sure you order a hi-def cable or satillate system and use either d.v.i. or a h.d.m.i. cable, The basic hi-def package is awsome and worth every penny. I have the dish hi-def system with basic+ hi-def and VOOM + over the air network hi-def channels its very affordable and will give you a feast of hi-def programming.The only problem once you start watching your t.v. you will spend your life davings on your 5.1. sound system and snack bar good luck and please post any questions you may have stewart
I am currently looking at a replacement for my 27in samsung crt, I had a mitsubishi before that and loved it, It had a lot of features, I had the mitsubishi for 4 years and got it for free, I just needed to fix it and it worked well for 4yrs. It eventually died and I replaced it with a samsung 27in crt had it for a little over 2 1/2 years, It worked well but I don't think the picture quality was that great, the mitsubishi was better, in this tv I have to set volume to 27 in daytime to get good results and the old used to be 12 plenty loud, wanna use receiver only for games and movies, not waste power on standar cable. I am gonna prerelease the PS3 and want an HDTV, my set currently runs up to 720i, I want at least 1080i and HDMI, possibly 16:9 ration. Some good sound quality out of the box. Sticking to CRT because more quality and it's more affortable. I think LCD's technology was pushed not because of necessity but because of convenience and style.
I have been looking at the sony KD-36XS955 (36in) KD-34XBR970 (34in) and KD-34XBR960 (34 in a little older but more features). I would love an mitsubishi but I don't think they made hdtv tubes in a long while.
Please list the sets you recommendations.
