Looking for a 16:9 TV. I'm not looking for HDTV right now, but I guess they're all HDTV. I use a VCR, LD player and my DVD player, all NTSC. Interlaced is fine for me right now, I just want a 16:9 picture close to the same size as my 32" 4:3 ntsc tv. Any suggestions?

I have to agree with hockeynut on this one. You will have to get a HDTV ready set for 16x9 format. The only 16x9 sets that are between 30" and 40" are the 34" Panasonic CT-34WX50 and the 38" RCA F38310. The RCA has a Directv HDTV decoder built-in. The Panasonic is HDTV ready and is closest to what it sounds like you want.

There is actually a few more 16x9's in the 30"-40" range:


30"

Samsung TSL3095WFH

Philips 30PW9815

Princeton ???????


34"

Toshiba CW34X92

Panasonic CT-34WX50 (previously mentioned)

Sampo SME-34WHD5

Philips 34PW9815

Sony ???????


38"

RCA F38310 (previously mentioned)

ProScan PS38000


40"

Toshiba 40H80


I am sure there are a few more I have missed, but this should give you a start.


When you say "same size" as your 32", I am not sure if you mean same size width, because you need to fit it in a cabinet, OR, if you mean "same size" as in you want the new 16x9 to give the same size picture as your 32" 4x3. If it is a width situation, the 30" 16x9s are your best option. If it is picture size, then either the 38" or 40" is the way to go.


Good Luck

If you want a 16x9 that will display a letterboxed 4x3 that is 32" you need a 40" 16x9. I recommend the Toshiba 40H80. Also with the 40H80 you can easily upgrade to HDTV later if you so desire.
