I have about $1500 to spend on a new TV, and this is what I'd like to do: Biggest screen with least amount of maintaince with HDTV capabilities (not necessarily right now, but I'd like to be able to easily port to it in the near future). In researching, it is my understanding that a plain old CRT is the most mature technology with the least amount of problems, but does that mean only a regular CRT. What about rear projection CRT? I can get a really large screen in my price range, but what I'm concerned with is the maintainance involved. What should I expect? Some sales man in one of the large chains said that the bulbs are $1000 apiece and need changing once a year. Is this true? Am I better off just buying a regular CRT TV? Help a real confused consumer...thanks.
