    Is it better to get a flat screen or a normal screen? I was at Best Buy and saw better picture quality on the flat screen than the normal screen. Can you help? Thanks.

    Flat screens have less reflection so are well suited to environments where light control is difficult and reflection can be a problem.

    I don't believe flat screen TV's have any inherent advantage in terms of actual picture quality, resolution, etc. Some of the regular screen TV's have less noticable screen curvature than others.

    Beyond that, it's a matter of personal preference. You can get a larger regular screen TV for the same price as a smaller flat screen one, which where cost is a factor, is an important part of the decision process.

    I have read that there is more inherent geometric distortion in flat screen TVs. Even so, I own two and am pleased with the picture on both.
