LOL! When I read the title I thought maybe you meant that you dropped it and you were trapped behind it and were pleading for help. I was about to call 911 for you!
And yes, I agree with the poster above: definitely check out the Panasonic vt60. More budget friendly is the st60, which is nearly as phenomenal. But I hear there are some lag issues with the st60, so be aware of that if you are a gamer.
You're never going to get the pq that your CRT had. But the panny plasmas come closest, in my opinion.
Honestly, if you don't have your tv hooked up to a sound system, what you are going to miss most in panel TV's is the sound quality that your Sony had.
P.S. If you want a 30" xs955 and can figure out how to get it to NY, you can check out mine in the classifieds.
I just took my VT60 out of the box and started watching it. Is that ok?
