It seems to me that technology is moving at such a rapid pace at the moment, that people like myself are being caught out with tvs that will be redundant in just 2 years or so. Personally I'd advise anyone thinking of buying a big screen tv to put their money away and sit tight for a while. Stick with your current crt set. It probably gives you a better PQ over lcd/plamsa anyway. A few months back I bought what was a new model lcd, (Toshiba's 26" 46WL). A week after buying the set it was announced that the same model of tv was to have hdmi added. Now this annoyed me, but what really annoyed me was that when it arrived a 32" model could now be bought for the same price as my 26". In the space of a couple of months, and assuming mine was a new model. How can this be. Does Toshiba not care about pissing off it's customers. Imagine if Man U replaced their shirt 2 months into a season. There'd be a huge outcry. Now to top it all off, I find out that due to the lack of hdmi I will be unable to receive Sky's hi-def service. Anyway, rant over. So I suggest people avoid buying a large screen tv until these specs have been reached: 1920 by 1080p minimum spec. 3/4 HDMI (HDCP) inputs for Blu-Ray/Sky/Console (PS3/XBox Next/Revolution) 42" less than £2,000. Well, I won't be buying a new set till the above has been met. Though for people who are loaded, the last one probably doesn't matter.
