ok first off, i need to say - i'm on a budget. I'd love to spend somewhere in the $1500-$2000 range. This probably means mail order/refurbished but that's fine. But i am DESPERATE for a 16:9 tube with progressive capabilities, and somewhere in the 34"-40-" area (can't be too big or heavy). The only set that comes close to meeting my criteria is the RCA 38" 16:9 - Best Buy has it for $2500, could try and wait for a sale, but i'd rather not buy from them (had a horrendous experience when i bought a Toshiba TW40X80 - one reason i'm staying away from projection). Even though it's not even a flat screen, it has by far the best looking picture i've seen so far with 16:9 direct view (i guess i'm only comparing it to the 34" panasonics and toshibas) are there any great deals out there i'm not aware of? any smaller or more obscure 16:9 sets? I might even go for a large 4:3 set that has progressive/16:9 squeeze capabilities, since i still play a lot of video games. For the right price i might prefer this option, but it would have to be big and probbaly not within my price range. so any recommendations/comments on the actual tv's and good reliable places to order from would be greatly appreciated! thanks - please help!!!
