    Go for CRT, they last longer.

    If you have a seating arrangement that is close up or not straight on, you will want the CRT.

    The Tosh is a reasonable deal, go for it, you'll never look back! The stand is not essential unless you have nowhere else to place your VCR or sat box. Try negotiating for a better price under threat of taking your business elsewhere.

    Why does it have to be the Tosiba look around there are many RP 41 inch + 4:3 and 16:9 for as little as £1000.

    or If you want to go mad £2000 will get you the 56 inch w/s tosiba if you look hard enough.

    Yes CRT can give a better picture but nowhere near the inpact.

    When do you watch most of your TV or how dark is your viewing room RP dont like light but reward you if you can reduce it.

    That 40 inch Tosiba you like is £ 1199.97 inc VAT<br />at <a href="http://www.empiredirect.co.uk/" target="_blank">http://www.empiredirect.co.uk/</a>

    The Toshiba has a non-reflective screen and can be viewed in full daylight! It's picture is stunning and arguably better than a regular CRT tv.

    The 46WHO8B is the same chassis as the 40WHO8B and is one of the best available. Believe me this tv DOES have impact, and how! - and can be viewed in daylight! This CRT tv cannot be beaten, (yet) for picture quality by Plasma, LCD or DLP. It has an excellent convergence control and is very user friendly. Go for it!

    Delta - have you played VCDs on the set?

    I am interested in the 46 and will use a DVD player connected using the component in video. Will I be disappointed with the reproduction of VCDs? I know it is verging on sacreligious to use such low quality media on such a system, but I spend a lot of time in the far east where VCDs are well established along side DVD - and we have a lot of them.

    Hold on everyone is mentioning the Tosh RPTVs' what about the others out thier hmmmm?

    Thier is 54inch and 44inch models from Thomson, if u look around both are under 2 grand.

    Then what about the NEW panasonic 42 inch RPTV it looks quite nice.

    I sorry but although a CRT tv will give a better image, a bigger screen will just blow u away, the bigger the screen the easier it is on the eyes.

    But like ther person said if ure living room is small and ure gonna be sitting only a metre and a half from the screen the get a 36inch CRT, if ure sitting 2 metre or more go for he biggest and best set that suits u i.e a RPTV
