  • "Big screen" TV advice

    I'm not the "has to have the top of the line everything" kind of guy.

    What I want is some sort of large-screen viewing experience.

    What route should I go and what should I expect to pay?

    Thanks in advance for any tips.

    I'm no expert in this area but I like my Sony 65" I got last summer

    Its digital 'ready' (whatever that means) ...I will have still have to buy a converter...there is so little content yet...I figured I'd wait

    It was about $2400 as I recall...the flat screens are too expensive...I don't like TV quite THAT much

        How big is the screen?

          That's exactly what I mean. I want something nice but I don't get enough enjoyment out of the extras that others that are more refined might notice.

          I definitely am dying for PIP though. Ugh!

            We have a 55" Philips HDTV ready rear-projection, and I absolutely love it. Cost about $1800.

              I'm in the market too. I'm waiting for a 24 month no interest deal though. Mitsubishi had one a couple weeks ago but I was still working on the warden to allow me to go get one. I have the approval now.

              I'm leaning towards a 51" widescreen Sony. I have had a 32" Sony for years and never had a problem with it. HD receiver isn't mandatory at this point.

              I see RCAs and Panasonics in the $1100-$1300 range but have not heard good reviews on them. Anyone have any experience with any of these brands?

                That's what we had... that thing will seem small once you get used to the bigger one.
