    I heard that fry's (or some place like it) was selling the Panasonic 47wx42 widescreen for 999.. More than your budget, but it is a steal..

    Some things to avoid:

    1. Only one regular video input and only one S-video input and only one "video" or A/V setting on the remote. You can only connect one thing to that TV.

    2. Stuck in 16:9 mode for certain inputs notably progressive scan if you are considering that.

    3. Noticeable delay before channel changes when you press the buttons on the remote.

    Also something highly desirable, a real 16:9 (squeeze) mode on a 4:3 TV.

    Sorry, I have no makes and models in mind to suggest.
