The problem I have, and the reason I never got rid of my CRT, is that the way my condo is set up the TV is sitting in a shelf set into the wall. The design was great back when these places were built and everyone had huge boxy TVs, it gave you a place to set it flush against the wall and lose no room from the depth. Now that it's 2012 and people no longer buy CRTs (for the most part) its just a big hole in the wall.
So thats my setup now. With the way things are set up we usually watch tv laying on the floor with our baby crawling around. In the past viewing angles were a huge issue with flat screens, move juts a little bit off center and things go dark. Is it still like that? My computer screen was bought for this reason, I didn't bother with a TN panel, I got an MVA that has pretty much unlimited viewing angles, I can stand on the side of it or lay on the ground, it all looks the same.
I have included the measurements of the TV nook in the picture. It's a little under two feet deep. I want to get something that would fill up a lot of the space in there, on the top I have a shelf with my gaming stuff, I could do the same thing and more with a flat screen instead of the 200+ pound beast I have in there now.
And again, viewing angles. I havent looked at any new TVs but I know the ones friends have bought years ago had the issues I was talking about, unless you look straight on they lose brightness and color, thats something I really dont want to happen, but I do have hope since computer monitors no longer have this issue.
So can anyone help me finally make the move from a CRT to a flat screen?
