So my parents old Samsung TV petered out last night. I heard a strange noise and went in the living room, and the thing was smoking. Ugh. So we went off to Best Buy, Circuit City, Sams Club, and Wal-Mart today. They are not looking for super high end, but decent quality. They will be watching mostly broadcast TV, from regular (not digital) cable. Digital is a possibility in the future though. We looked at everything from $350 all the way up to $600. Their taste is somewhere in the middle, and my Dad wants to spend as little as possible. I think I may be able to convince him to go somewhere around $350, maybe $400. What do you recommend in this price range? We are interested in Flat-Screen CRTs only. I did see a 30-in wide screen today at Sams Club. It was like $398. Made by Akai. I have seen some old audio equipment that they made a long time ago. A reel-to-reel if I remember correctly. Anyone heard about this unit? It seemed a little cheaply made to me. Also, it had a 2 line digi-comb filter, instead of a 3 line. How big of a difference is this?
