Personally I can't say about comparison to the Sony's. I've had my F38310 since January of 2002 and never regretted it for a minute.
I recently purchased one privately/locally with stand for my son for $400. Considering the built in ATSC tuner, it was is a great bargain.
The one caveat you will need to take into consideration is shipping costs. I'm sure that by the time you factor in those costs (and insurance?) and purchasing 'sight unseen', it's risky. And... could be quite expensive. You could probably buy a new HDTV with more "features/functionality". (although not as large direct view CRT).
