    Tweeter has one of these now-discontinued sets left and is selling it for $800. It is a 32" high def-ready set (4x3) and I have put a refundable deposit of 10% down on it. Wanted opinions from HTF before making my final decision. Does anyone own one of these? In combo with a Sony DVP-NS975 progressive scan player with HDMI output, would this be a good interim home theater display unit until I can afford a front projector/screen, etc.?

    It's an excellent 4/3 HD ready set. If the size and aspect ratio don't bother you, you won't be going wrong by any means. For a few hundred more larger widescreen crt based rptvs in the neighborhood of 42-48" are readily available if you're not hung up on lcd or dlp, newer tech with worse pics and higher prices.

    I've seen a Toshiba 46" RPTV on sale for $997 recently at H.H. Gregg, so there are 16x9 sets with larger screensizes available for only a little more if you want to spend that much.
