    I am looking to buy a 27" TV with 16:9 mode for my parents. Besides the SONY models that have this feature are there any other brands/models (a bit cheaper than SONY) that would be suggested by this fine, well informed forum?

    Thanks in advance...

    I would go with the new Toshiba 27AF43. It is $399 at Bestbuy and has a 16:9 mode. It looked much better than the Sony, IMO.

    I saw a Samsung last weekend, Model # unknown, but I was very impressed and the price was very modest for a 16:9 aspect ratio HDTV-ready monitor. I have been thinking about for my bedroom and I beleive it was $799 at a high end shop where nothing is discounted. I am sure BB or CirCity has it, too.

    I was thinking that Samsung had a 27" tv that had this feature and that the remote control has a button on it to access it.
