    My neighbor got a new HDTV....
    Bought at CC yesterday, installed by me yesterday.
    Philips 60" Widescreen CRT RPTV, not open box, not refurbished.

    I gave it 2 big thumbs up and a twist... [​IMG]


    So if your feeling screen size deprived and don't want to spend a fortune. I give this one a green light, bar'n any service issues in the coming months with it.

    I was pretty surprised when he showed me the reciept.

    They loaded it on his truck, but if I hadn't asked him if he needed some help, I'm not sure how he would of gotten it into his house. I just happened to see him come home with it in the back of his pickup.

    It seemed really good on PQ to me. We only played around with DVD's and some SD Digital cable.

    Yeah, this was in their Sunday circular, so it should be available everywhere.

    I saw this ad in their flyer and have also been thinking about it. I plan to go look at it tomorrow, but have been trying to do some research on it and haven't found a whole lot. So do you guys think this is a good TV? Does is hold up with the 57" Sonys and Hitachis? I've read some things about how the PQ wasn't that great and that it has a 3 line filter not a 3D filter?? I don't know just don't want to buy a bad TV!

    Brandon,
    IMHO the 2 answers to your question is NO and NO. If you shop around you can get a better set(ie Hitachi, Mits, Sony) for a few hundred more(likely around $1700). You get what you pay for.

    The PQ holds up very well....

    Do not feed the Philips composite video though, they do have the weekest 3 line comb filter out there.

    But on Svideo and above, they do extremely well.
    You should always get the best you can afford though.

    I use a Philips.. It is way awesome.

    In most any real shoot out in the trade rags. They come out really well on Picture Quality matched up against any others. A couple of pro reviews for you.
