    We are going to need more info before we can help you.

    Are you looking for a CRT base TV? Or a rear projction (RPTV) TV? Do you want a flat screen? What will you be using the TV for? HD, DVD, cable, DTV? Does the room where the set is going to go have a lot of windows?

    I think after you answer some of these questions we might be able to help you.

    I'm partial to the Panasonic 53WX42, for the price. I couldn't find another TV that I liked that still fell under $2K. They are on dealer floors for between $1700-1800 right now (maybe less if you find the right dealer), and with a little (maybe a lot) of tweaking they look great.

    If you want to go smaller (or bigger) they make the same TV in 47" and 56" varieties.
