Why don't you convert yourself to a HDTV and up your money...... in 2 years that $300 will go down the drain.

You don't need to get an HD set to get a good picture and a digital tuner.

Both Sony and Samsung offer digital SD sets at 27". Both are $399, the lowest prices available.

Sony KD-27FS170 #399 Samsung TX-S2783 $399

I recommend the Sony.

Ya! Me thinks for just under $200, the 3 months full coverage that it comes with is good. I probably could get an extended warranty if i wanted to spend the extra money. I dont see any reason for that expenditure, as this set looks great and the warranty would prabably be almost as much as the cost of the set.
Remember this is the philips 27 inch flat tube tv 27PT9015D/37B with free delivery, sdtv, with both tuners for under $200. GL in your search HTH

Thats a waste of money. Who the hell spends more than $300 on a SD CRT. You can get a cheap used HD which is way better than that on ebay or craigslist.

$300 is way too much. You can pick up an Orion TVD2710 27" SDTV CRT right now at Wal-Mart for $150. It works pretty much like a Toshiba (also made by Orion) but in a different brand. And I have one right now.
