You want a Sony 34XBR960. The widest widescreen HD CRT Sony ever made (34" 16:9 ratio). Easy enough to find on eBay or Craigslist for $250-$700. Has HDTV tuner.
Or the Sony 36XS955, which is their 36" 4:3 ratio, if you prefer that. Both are the biggest ever built that have the SuperFinePitch screens & HDTV tuners.
But both are 200-250lbs, so bring 2 or 3 big friends to lift them. CRTs so same no-lag CRT performance.
The 40" Sony 40XBR800 is a 4:3 behemoth at 305lbs (displays 16:9 ratio as letterboxed at equivalent of 36.7 inches, but unlike the 2 above, it doesn't have a digital TV tuner (does have a DVI input for an external tuner/box), and doesn't have the SuperFinePitch screen.
Plasma, LCD (LED LCD), and DLP-type technologies still do not compete for lack of lag.
