    My mother's TV has died. She needs no high-end or even mid-end equipment. I am suggesting a low end 27" for around CAD$600 (under US$400).
    I'm thinking maybe the Toshiba 27A41 or something similar. It's got a digital comb filter and a universal remote. It's even got both S-video and component inputs.
    Maybe I'll ship my old DVD player to her too.

    Hmmm... It seems these things are cheaper than I thought.
    So:
    NOT 27A30,
    but 27A40, 27A41, and 27A50 seem OK, although she'd never use the PIP of the latter.

    I'd recommend the 27A41 for $299 right now.

    Would this Toshiba be good for a starter home theater project? I'm a college student living in a single apartment, so money is not growing on trees. However, I think I have made my current Mitsubishi 27" last longer than it was meant to. My current tv buzzes constantly; getting louder the brighter the image on the screen.
    I read also that Samsung makes a good tv too. I want to stay between 27"-32" and it must have S-Video in. My dvd player is the Sony DVD7700 btw. Oh, I would like to keep my total cost below $700, if the 32" is included in the search.
    Your advice would be welcome. Thanks.

    I think if you scan through the postings here from the past month or so, you'll find a few threads discussing decent 27-32 inch tvs for a reasonable price. Here is a good thread to start with:
