Is the OP intent on buying locally, or is he willing to buy online?
Lazza - what's the guide like on the Tivax? I just got the Zinwell last night, and there's a huge difference in PQ on my 32" set between it and the CM (I'm somewhat disappointed, actually - it's actually closer to the Pal's PQ than the Zenith's. The colors are sort of flat and faded, too). Anyway, the CM appears almost HD-like on some material. The ZAT doesn't even come close. I find it hard to believe that he won't see any difference in PQ on a 27" TV - so I disagree with you on that. Now, between the CM and the Tivax, the average person may not notice anything. Plus, the Zinwell has barely any sort of a guide at all (Now & Next, and absolutely no program info), so he might not care for that part, either.
Out of the CM, Zenith, Pal and Zinwell I've used so far, I much prefer the CM.
