Its coming up to my 21st birthday and my last year of uni.. I really quite fancy buying a big tv for my bedroom Now clearly a plasma would be ideal but i dont think i can justify blowing £2k on a tv and anything under that price i wouldnt really touch (ala grundig) Having a look round 36" CRT's seem very very bloated and heavy and not even that cheap, however many of the Rear projection sets seem to be getting sold off for under a grand now. Seen sony 42" for £700 Samsungs around £600 and even are rather slick DLP lg for £1500 (although think this is also noisey as well as expensive) If i was to get one of these it would have to be 16:9 but most of these seem to be 100hz. Whenever i see 100hz crt sets the picture looks processed smeared and crap - can 100hz mode be turned off? Also would it be a bad idea to order one of these from one of the online dealers (who have excellent deals) as im concerned about recieving one with a bad geometry etc. I'd be using the set primarily to watch ntsc region 1 dvds but also a fair amount of tivo, - any advice as to which sets and buy would be appreciated.
