    Hi all,

    My friend is in the process of buying a bachelor pad and wants bigger/better TV.

    He wants the set to have: 100hz, be HD ready and ideally 36", but will consider 32"

    Anything spring to mind?

    Thanks,
    Martin

    Unfortunately I think many of us in the UK are looking for the same thing...

    Which as far as I know, doesn't exist in the UK I'm afraid :(

    I can't help thinking that it never will, either, with the widespread pushing of LCD and Plasma, I can't see any of the big TV manufacturers putting a fully HD-Ready CRT on the market now.

    So your friend will have to look to these new technologies if he really wants a fully HD-Ready set.

    With demand for CRTs down around 30% year on year, you're right. It is unlikely that anyone will bother, unless someone spots a niche market.
