    I would like to buy a new widescreen TV. I am willing to spend between $2,000 - $3,000.

    I would like good visual quality and a good viewing angle.

    From what I understand, CRTs have a better viewing angle and picture quality over LCDs. Is this correct?

    Aside from the less volume that a LCD takes up, and the fact that you do not have to worry about images buring in the screen, what advantage are there to an LCD vs. a CRT?

    An LCD is a good alternate when you don't have the space for a CRT, other than that I believe a CRT is much better than an LCD.

    A CRT will have a much better picture, and is not subject to "dead pixels" which appear as pink dots on the screen like LCD's can have. It is true CRT's can get burn-in, but take care of your TV and don't play an image that shouldn't be on there all hours of the day. I always play 16:9 movies on my 4:3 screen and I have no burn-in after 3 years.

    Either way they are both good decision, LCD's aren't cheap, and don't offer quality as good as CRT's in my opinion but they aren't bad either.
