    I have one question, I have heard that if i play video games on this TV it might burn-in, Is this true?

    CRTs are subject to burn-in, as are plasma when used with any of these kinds of material. Stock tickers, games, and constant use of closed captioning.

    So, yes, it is true. I would suggest that you save up another $175, and get the Ilo 26 inch widescreen LCD, that rated well by Consumer Reports.

    Will cost you $675 delivered from Walmart

    Or, if you really want a 27 inch, and a better known brand, the Westinghouse LTV-27W2 is a good choice, however it will run you $713 delivered from a popular, but not necesarily authorized source.
