Hi all - I'm moving my current 32" Sony Trinitron into the basement, and using the opportunity to upgrade my primary TV. I've been trying to keep up with the latest issues and concerns (as well as deals) but I must admit I've become a bit overwhelmed. What I want to do is buy the BEST TV I can for about that price. I had thought I'd go to a 36"... but it is not a necessity. I'm ok if I need to stay at 32" to get the best quality. I don't want to buy something that, in two years, I'm going to regret not having spent a little more on to get something else, you know? We also have an issue with the cabinet out TV is on, in that its width is just 35 1/2. I know a lot of 36" say they are wider... but I'm guessing that the base might fit, and that's all that matters (there are no walls on this cabinet, just drawers below). Anyway we watch about 65 percent DIRECTV, 30 percent DVD and 5 percent VHS (Those Disney videos of my son that haven't been upgraded yet), and I run all my S-Video connections through my Marantz SR7000 receiver which does the S-Video switching. Thanks for reading all of this, and thanks in advance for any suggestions. If there is more info that would be helpful, please ask.
