    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?

    Pound for pound a good crt will easily outperform any plasma or lcd .As you say space is not an issue so until the reliability and picture improves a crt is the way to go.The best looking tvs at the moment in my opinion are the panasonic pd range,although they HAD some issues with picture noise .I know because i had one.Gutted i had to change ,it was a gorgeous looking machine.
