    DirectTV supposedly has a butt-load of college games in HDTV now. Now I just need to get an HDTV set...

    GE also makes jet engines for commerical airliners...
     
  5. way to cheap for a good HDTV.
    dont get an CRT tv of any type, save for something good.
    dont get plasma either, burn ins and life expectancy and problems.
    i have a friend who just bought a 50" sony LCD projection, what an awesome picture.

    I'm not so sure about that...the best HD picture quality I've seen by far was on a 31" Sony Trinatron HDTV. It flat out kicked ass. Both plasma and LCD pictures seem a tad fuzzy or blurry...not near as sharp as a good CRT. Then again, CRTs are heavy as shit and are a pain to move out to the garage for football gatherings...
     
  7. well thats the TOP of the line CRT and a great TV no doubt.
    If LCD pictures seem fuzzy, there either wasnt a good signal or the picture was set up incorrectly.

    Sharp, the number 1 manufacturer of TVs in the world, will be closing their last CRT production line next year. They expect to never sell another CRT TV after 2005.

    This is according to a factory rep that I do a ton of business with. I believe it.

    As far as CRT goes, I recommend the Sony 34xbr910 (although '910' may be an older model if the new one has already come out). That's 34" on a 16:9 set, and has a jaw dropping picture with anything in 720p or 1080i.

    If you want something bigger, Samsung makes an incredible line of DLP sets. One of the many advantages to DLP is that there's no burn-in, meaning you can also use it as a computer monitor, play console games on it, etc. I've got the HLN567W, but the HLP models are out now, and are an upgrade on an already terrific line.

    I spent a ton of time researching everything when I bought both of those sets nearly a couple years ago, but one of the best places I found is another vBulletin board at http://www.avsforum.com.

    DaytonBuck I've always liked them

    If I have an HD ready TV, what do I need to watch TV in HD?

    Depends on how you pull in your channels. If it's Directv, you need an HD receiver like the Sony HD-300. If it's cable, whatever HD receiver they offer. For local HD channels, often an antenna that goes up in your attic, you can find those at Radio Shack believe it or not.
