I voted CRT. Tried & true technology.. Still gives you the best PQ, richest colors & deepest blacks.. Also the least expensive & isn't going through the growing pains of the newer technologies..

I currently own a 26inch Samsung CRT.. I use it for Broadcast TV/DVDS/Games.. I'm going to upgrade to a CRT RP TV soon.. & will be a early adaptor to the new SED technology as I feel it will truly be the next best thing..

The #1 spot for gaming headphones/headsets/Mic mods/DH 5.1/links & more.

Don't have an HD set yet, but do have a DTV tuner so that I can "glimpse" at what's out there OTA... (I do like the wide screen programming, though)

I did take it to my parents, who have a Sony 4x3 HD tube set (but no tuner) - the NFL looked super in HD!

So, I'm trying to decide what to get...

Those are surprising numbers. Many of us are still tube loyalists, while the other 5,000 lb gorilla is DLP!

My sincere thanks to everyone who makes AVSforum such an awesome resource.

I'm not surprised at all
Digital is almost there, but still not quite as gorgeous as a CRT display.
Just ask Art! Double Stacked Sony G90s

I use a RCA HD65W140 which is rear projection. I have a few shadows on the screen from what looks like burn in. I do not recommend Rear Projection. RCA has an extended warranty on this set and this is the second 65" RCA because the previous one became unrepairable. RCA bought it back after about 18 months and a dozen repair occurences. The new one is better but sometimes I get a better picture on a 10 year old 35" Toshiba in our game room with a HD10-250 DVR/ receiver. The next one will be front projection, DLP or possibly another technology that doesn't suffer burn in problems. HD is still too wide open on which technology is best for the money.

Sorry Beardad but I must disagree.

A properly setup CRT RPTV will do just fine. Choosing to avoid static images is also a good thought, but not necessary. I've got a Sony 51" CRT RPTV with over 4 years of steady use and I see no burn in.

Best HD display for the MONEY? Hands down, CRT FP if you have a place to put it.

I've had the RCA 38" 16x9 tube tv for three years now and I still think it's the best picture I've seen - plasma or otherwise. It's in my gallery. Love it. :-) Heavy s.o.b. though.

Good morning, Dave...
