    I was thinking about buying a new 27" TV for my bedroom setup. Right now I have a toshiba with the standard tube. However, Best Buy (gotta get it there, sweet employee discount) has started carrying the flat screen version of the 27" Toshiba TV. Besides the awesome picture flat screens put out, what are some other benefits? Flat screens come out to about 100$-200$ more so I want to be sure I making a good decision before putting out the extra money. Thanx in advance

    Mike, depending on what outputs/features your current Toshiba has, I really don't see too much advantage to upgrading to another 27 inch even if it is a flat screen. It really depends on what features your current set has (e.g. component inputs, surround sound stereo, etc etc.) compared to what the new 27 inch Toshiba flat tube offers.
    The basic advantages to a flat tube are reduced glare problems and some people like the side speaker set up that most flat tubes have.
    hope this helps,
