hello. i am in the market for a television to fit my studio apartment. i am considering 20-27" tv's from circuit city (i work there and get a decent price). i did a search, but couldn't come up with many experiences with 20" sets. i was looking at the pan 20" tau, though the other sizes seem to have geometry issues. at the same price, i can pick up the 20" fv300 wega or a pan ct27d11. all have s-video, but the latter two have component. i don't like the cabinet of the new wega in comparison to the old one, but i can live with it. i don't have to have a great tv, just something that i'll be happy with. i will need to connect a dvd player (via component or s), possibly a directivo (s), and vcr (composite). sounds like i should veer towards the d11 or fv300. though they are not that much different in size, i would maybe like the 20" as opposed to 27" for space issues. any comments? thanks in advance.

If you can afford it, pop for the 27". 20" is nice for a small bedroom, but you'll be wishing for something a little bigger.

A good traditional tube would be the Phillips PHL 27PS55S; $299. I've heard nothing but good things about it.

For a flat tube, get a Sony Wega KV27FS13. The 16:9 vertical compression is worth it.

i'll look into the philips, thanks. too bad the store doesn't have toshiba, i've got one at another apartment that i really like. anyways, looks like its coming down to the pan d11 and phillips. i might take a look at the jvc, too, actually. i'll hold off on spending a lot more until i graduate, so no wega for me.
