    I am looking to replace a 27" set that died on me. I have just over a thousand dollars for a new set. I am aiming for a 36" and was looking for recommendations. I have looked at the Jvc, Toshiba, and Panasonic. No real models jumping out at me and was just looking for some feedback.

    Well, you got a good price range there. JVC, Toshiba, and Panasonic are all solid brands. But, for a tube TV I'd suggest checking out the JVC. I have a JVC 27", which I do want to upgrade to an HDTV one day soon (I hope), but it has a fantastic image quality. When you tweak it right, it's just stunning sometimes with DVD. So I suggest looking at some JVC 36" televisions. Also, since you are in Tampa, I'd take a vacation toward South Florida one day and check out this electronics store called Brandsmart USA, they usually have great deals. But, that's a bit far fetched, since it's a 4 hour drive. Well, good luck and take care.

    I did look at the Jvc-D series model 36d502, 501, and 302. I did like what I saw, but was just trying to check some other opinions before I drop the money.

    The only problem I see with the 40H80 is that it isn't directview. The tv will be in a family room next to glass sliding doors that are slightly tinted, but I would guess not enough to help, and I usually have people that sit on the side.

    I just thought about something, before you drop the cash for a new TV, you might want to head over to www.audioreview.com and check the reviews on some of the model televisions you want...you may also check out www.epinions.com . I thought this might help you. Take care and Good Luck.

    Great TV
    Paid $550 + 100 Shipping
    For a little more, you could get the 36 inch

    I just got the JVC 36D302 (one of the new silver models) this weekend and let me say that I am thouroughly impressed with everything about this tv. IMHO I think it looks better than the Wegas that cost many hundreds more. Bought it through GoodGuys.com for $899 with no tax and free shipping.
