I have finally decided to replace my 12 year old B&O with a widescreen model. That cropping has finally forced my hand! Being a bit of a style ponce the TV has to be nice looking, but most importantly has to have a great picture. Initially I was drawn to an LCD (I still might be), something like the Loewe Spheros looks very nice I have to say. Nice black surround. Then again I have also been looking at the Aconda 9381 HD (I presume this is different than the 9381 ZW, although I am unsure as to why). Space isn't an issue for me, I won't be hanging anything on any walls, the TV will occupy a corner of the room, has adequate space behind it. If I got an LCD, it would become "dead space". I am leaning 50:50 at the moment LCD vs CRT. However, on picture quality (and price) I am thinking "Why pay more for an inferior picture?". I am sure there are others out there with the same issue. LCD's look nice but ultimately it is about picture quality. Isn't it?
