I don't have enough experience with them to go that far, but they certainly caught my eye, particularly the smaller tubes like the CT-30WX54, and CT-30WC14, and even a few of their new smaller HD-capable 4x3s. If you haven't looked at many D/V tubes lately, these are worth a quick detour to CC, Walmart or Sam's Club? to check out IMO, to see how far the technology has come. (Take a couple anamorphic DVDs if you can.) Whether or not they'd be a good purchase/investment though, I can't say yet. The picture certainly had an amazing sense of depth, clarity and density though, even in the atrocious lighting at CC and Walmart.
