I asked this already, but I've thought it over and will repost with my new options and feelings (shown in "EDITs"). My current television is a Philips 27PT543S 27" TV that's at least 4 years old. I have decided that it's time to upgrade. The picture quality is pretty good, but it should be simple to beat. I have an O'Sullivan Entertainment Center, model 20366. The measurements are 37" (940mm) wide, 35 3/8" (900mm) tall, with basically as much space as I need front to back, as long as I'm not keeping it propped up with sticks. Sorry, I'm not sure of the weight limit. EDIT: I do understand that I may have to dump the center and get a stand + A/V shelf. Keep in mind this must be added to the price, and therefore will take me a longer amount of time to purchase this new television. My DVD player is a Sony DVP-NS775V. I'd like to go with a 36" 4:3. I'm not sire I'm ready to make the jump to widescreen yet (yeah, yeah, I know ). I would like something that supports 480p (is that possible in 4:3?). I also want a flat screen (duh). EDIT: I suppose I could go widescreen, but again, to get a fair size for SDTV, I'd have to ditch the center. Please help me out. And of course, I'm looking for best bang for the buck. My price range isn't really limited, but the higher the price, the longer I'm waiting (we're talking months-year, here). It doesn't need to be HDTV. It's going to be used for a lot of standard cable and video games. EDIT: Everyone has told me to go with HDTV anyway, but I've heard SDTV looks horrible on an HDTV. Either way, I CANNOT afford any sort of HDTV programming (except maybe an OTA HDTV antenna, of course, but no more monthly bills). I do need at least one component cable connection (2 if possible, but not required), one s-video cable, and at least 2 regular old red/yellow/white cable. Everything is hooked up through my receiver, so that's all it needs, really. EDIT: Another important piece of information is that I do live in an apartment. From wall to wall in the living room there's probably only 10 FT (if even). Then there's the couch and then there's the television, so it ends up being about five feet away from the television. One last thing (sorry for the length of this post)- My friend has a Panasonic 47" HDTV Monitor (PT47X54) (or one that has an identical look) and I think it looks pretty crappy. It makes my eyes water a little and when four people are sitting side by side on the floor playing a video game, the two on the ends get a pretty crappy picture (because of the low viewing angle).
