Current television – 5-year old Sony 24in widescreen (not flat-screen) Sources – Thomson DTI 2300 DTV box (with TUTV Card ), Denon 2200 DVD (Prog. Scan ready) For the last few months, I've been investigating purchase of an LCD tv. My initial impression is how rapidly they've improved over the last twelve months, but looking at them in the big retailers ‘warehouses' doesn't help to form an opinion. Currently I'm looking at the little reviewed Hitachi 28LD5200 as it's the size I'm looking for and is available at a good price on the Internet at present having been awarded 4 out of 5 stars by most reviewers when it was priced at 2K. My question is, although most reviews of LCDs rave over colour, clarity etc., very rarely do they directly compare to a comparable CRT. When they do, it's often unfavourably for the LCD, often saying the LCD is good but not yet up there with CRT for picture quality. If I'm going to justify spending around a grand on a new TV, she-who-must-be-obeyed has to be convinced it was money well spent. Is it the right time to buy, or should I really wait. I know technology is always changing and if you buy anything now it's outdated within months if not weeks, but is LCD really ready to take on the CRTs of this world?
