O.K. .... first off.... I am a lucky lucky man! I am married for all of a month now and am being urged into a bigger TV for the house. "OK, OK, if I gotta." LOL! Anyway, here's the deal. Now that we are married and we moved all my stuff from my Apt. to her house I am in the process of putting my "home theater" back together. (Basic stuff, 5.1 surround Sony equipment, Toshiba DVD, Mitsubishi VCR etc..) The dilemna? I didn't have cable TV before, she does. I have 1 jack in the back on my old 27" RCA TV and when I route the cable thru the VCR and DVD player I get interference on the TV. When I explained this to my wife, she said "So, we need a TV with more hookups right?". Right. So, with the idea that I'll buy a nicer 32" TV we measured out the old entertainment center I have (which we've been discussing replacing in the spring anyway) and went out to a few shops last night and found NONE of the 32" TV's out there will fit my center. OK.... so now she suggests, "Maybe we should buy a new center AND TV." OK... if I gotta. So we wind up in a Home Theater store last night looking at a beautiful entertainment center holding a 42" TV. The price on the center was right, they wanted $999 (on sale from like 1299), but it didn't include the TV stand if you wanted to but a 32" TV in it (this is a 4 piece set of furniture). They will throw in the stand for $400 instead of $500. So... I'm looking at like $1300 for the center. However.. if you add a 32" TV for like $500 to $600... I'm around $2000 (roughly). Her thought (thanks to me and the sales guy). If we buy a big screen TV (up to 42") to fit w/out the TV stand and find one from $800 to $1000 it would make more sense than paying for a TV stand w/ a smaller TV. Following this?? I am! So here's my question. What can I do in the budget of about $800 to $1000 in buying a 32" to a 42" TV that is of quality. Will I sacrifice quality in cheaper but bigger TV or is it worth it? Should I spent the money on a 32" TV and the stand? Help me out here guys! I am looking for a good quality TV that will be worth spend what little budget I have for this! Thank you for any help! Let me know if I need to give more details! Bill Did I mention I love my wife???
