I have been watching the prices of the various offerings for HD TV's drop over the past couple of years but not to the point where I would consider or could even afford one. I'm sure the cost factor is the one thing that is preventing most people from purchasing one. That being said, with the 2007 deadline quickly approaching I need to make a decision on some form of HD TV. I doubt my budget would be able to afford any of the high-end HD TV's in the next couple of years even if the prices drop by half. I've had a HT for a couple of years now and the TV component is the only missing piece. I have noticed that a few manufacturers are offering CRT-based HD TV's in the 30-34 inch range and I was wondering how good they are and if they would be suitable for true HD viewing. I don't mind the smaller form factor (30-34")...basically I'm looking for the higher PQ to suit my DVD player and satellite feed (I could afford a HD satellite feed). Thanks.
