I know that there have been MANY THREADS on this topic and I'm sure this won't be the last. So here goes... I'm in the process of replacing my 6 year old 27" Sony Trinitron(which has been GREAT) with a new set. My current entertainment center is only capable of holding a 27" set, so I'm set on the size. Now... My two choices at the moment are, Sony 27" Flat-Screen TV with 2-Tuner PIP $550 or Zenith 27" HDTV Monitor $599 Both seem like good sets for the price. I watch about 80-90% dvds while my girlfriend watches 80% digital cable. If I do go with the HDTV I will get HD and that isn't a problem/issue. I just want to get the best set for the price. Since I won't get another set until I upgrade in a few years, I want it to last. I want the best possible picture for the price. I also have a progressive scan dvd player(Toshiba SD-3800) Thanks in advance for ANY thoughts and sorry about the long post! I plan on getting one of these by weeks end.
