    I have come to the conclusion that my 28inc CRT television just isn't big enough so i'm looking into larger screens. I'm a student so my budget is tight.. so thats LCD and Plasma out the window but I did come across this.

    http://www.qed-uk.com/q?i=11_gA81Zfqb6&vp=6&bg=173&bp=q2s&bi=0

    I was really excited when I cam across this at about 9 this morning, but have been doing some reading through the day and now feeling a little down. Issues regarding screen burn, large maintenence bills has got me wondering is it worth it.

    Also I have read reviews about the picture being abit dull? is that beacuse people have been watching too much plasma and top end projectors that a CRT RPTV isn't up to those standards? Also a question that would it be safe to be moved around, ie next year when I move into my own flat/house share, would the travel damage it in anyway?

    any insight would be more then welcome, Thanks

    Hi Will18

    I had one of these & soon returned it due to poor picture quality. loads of artifacts when watching footbal & any fast paced movies. Also suffered from red & blue blurring on edges of screen. :thumbsdow

    I've now taken plunge to buy the Sagem HD45

    Thanks for your reply, giving me second thoughts and third and forth about getting this. Just a question how did you have it connected up? Via component, scart, rgb? Thanks in advance
