    Hi

    Looking to get a 28 inch CRT. Anyone know/have an opinion as to what's the best out there - price not a factor.

    Many thanks.

    In your opinion maybe. But when I saw the B&O, I found it to be ugly, impractical and the picture too soft for my liking. :thumbsdow

    my dear fella your very welcome to say so,its what makes this a forum.
    i may suggest you have another look for everyday purposes.
    but why did you say it was impractical?
    design wise,its a personal thing

    Looks like I'm not the only one recommending Sony's 28DX200. Which? just tested 25 widescreen TVs and awarded DX200 its 'Best On Test' accolade. Admitedly, there was another 28" TV which ran it close but guess what? ...It was another Sony! :D

    I think one reason that Which? like the Sony 28DX200 is because of the EPG. For some reason they seem to rate this as highly important. Personally I don't find the EPG on the Sony that great.

    Firstly, there is no day advance and you can only advance one programme at a time.

    Secondly, Which? liked the facility to setup to record via the EPG but don't mention that this is only useful if the programme is transmitted exactly as originally scheduled. The EPG does not appear to be updated if the programme times change, resulting in missing starts or, more commonly, ends to recordings. Even good old analogue has PDC.
