    Has anyone heard anything about this new slender CRT from Samsung? I've heard it's HD compatible but haven't found anything on the net...

    There was a rather heated discussion on "News item: Slimline CRT TVs?" from 20/01/05 in this section of the Forum.

    Is this the same thing?

    That tv looks awesome.

    Bet it'll cost a bit though.

    Makes big CRT stealable again, too

    Check out the latest Home Cinema Choice magazine. There's something in there about this TV. From what I've read it has a component connection to accept 1080i, but states it won't be true HD because of it's limited native resolution. Also there's no HDMI connection which it's US counterpart has.

    I would love to be able to get a good quality 32 inch HDTV crt set similiar to the Samsung which is available in the USA, unfortunatly i dont think anyone will release one in the UK. I'am loathe to buy a vastly overpriced LCD (or Plasma etc) which as a worse PQ than the widescreen crt i have now, even though i want to get Skys new High Def service when available.

    true. they got some bum reviews from what home cinema mag (like who cares ? :rotfl: ) but that was because it was so revealing on low def pal tv and sky that it couldn't make up for their poor quality which to be fair is what CRT TV`s have been trying for 10 years now introducing DRC, Pixel Plus /II, Acuity, DNM, Crystal clear, 100hz, 75hz, progressive scan etc... the list is endless in fact JVC have been making high quality direct view set for ages but they dont have the smooth motion chipsets of the larger companies and the 4x line doublers and proccesing.. i think the lastest 32" and 36" JVC Hi-Def CTR`s are way over looked and there now going for seriously low cash and do a genuine workable HD picture.

    jus my opinion :rolleyes:

    I saw the Samsung in Germany last month. Picture quality looked a bit iffy to to me, especially in the corners of the screen.

    I think if you want flat, buy an LCD, and if you want the best PQ (from standard def) then buy a full size CRT from a brand that has a strong reputation for it.

    And as for HD, a good LCD running on decent HD material (BluRay for example) looks even better than CRT, IMO.

    Hmmm it would appear that the Euro version of this TV isn't compatible with 720p.

    I'm hoping I'm wrong though.

    I also cannot find the any mention of resolution - then again I cold be blind or stupid (or indeed both) :D
