    Having mentioned to my local Sony shop that I would prefer CRT as CRT I keep hearing is the better screen still, just heard that again from my digital signal distributor !…the shop says go LCD, think to the future, it will be high definition, yes and allegedly at £100 for Sky. Telewest have no info at all on this, unable to say what cost will be, when it will be etc, though I don’t intend paying more than at present for the basic package, so no doubt I probably wont receive it unless it’s a total change for all packages.
    Freeview however will give High Definition broadcasts of BBC1 ITV etc etc, and I watch those just as much so I shall be able to use High Def for some viewing.
    The problems LCD had with fast moving subjects is much improved now with the new Bravia range from Sony the shop says, how fast is CRT…well it is instant, but the difference is not visible now.
    You need a widescreen LCD Bravia they still say, then I hear from someone that LCD cannot give the contrast that CRT gives, black is not black. In daylight room its less contrasty.
    So would a purchase of a CRT 32inch widescreen be a bad move then for a TV considering the next few yrs and beyond or just as suitable. Will it be able to portray high def transmissions.
    I then hear there is a new less deep tube type coming December time, so obviously there is a need for tube still, else why bother. Will this be able to take up on High Definition where current CRT cannot ?

    CRT or LCD, looks like CRT but shops have few if any.

    Space & style is enough reason for me - CRT's look like dinosaurs nowadays....
