Help. I need a cheap, as a console, 16:9 TV for a project I'm putting together for a friend. I am a CRT FP person, in my normal life, I don't like to look at screens smaller than 9 ft diag but this is different. Cost is important, I want cheap, 1080i would be great.


I'm sorry to ask this question, you guys are all avid buyers of the big TVs I know but where else could I turn? Those guys in the bulb forum would start a debate about why TI and JVC will never produce small TVs but if they did they'd show rainbows or have no cntrast... Can't handle that right now....

Do you know what size your friend is looking for?

What, did you post this on the wrong forum, who's an avid buyer of the big TV? If I can't sit 3 feet away from it, I don't want it! But that's only because I'm poor. Anyways, your cheapest 16:9 sets are probably going to be the Samsung's or Philips'. I believe Sammy makes a 26" that's like...$600-700 maybe, and also a couple 30"ers that vary in price, but mostly run around $850-950. The best, widely available, B&M deal I'm aware of though is Costco selling Philips' 30PW850H for... lets just say pretty cheap (can't give specifics, AVS Police will throw me in jail). Wish I could come up with more, but I gota be up at seven in the am. They got me working fifty hour weeks over here ya know?

Juan: Less than 30" in size.

Orta: I can't fnid the TV on Costco's website. Maybe it's an intstore only special. Don't work so hard!

Look at the Samsungs, there 16:9 TV's start at 26 inches and are probably the most affordable.
