    Jim, I had the Toshiba 32A42, and although it was nice in alot of ways, it did not have a 16:9 mode. It also displayed very dark blacks, which was great in a dark room with a bias-lite behind the set, but not so great in a room with standard lighting. If you like deep, inky black levels and have good control over the room's lighting, it'd probably be a good choice.

    If your looking for a 4:3 tube (and nothing wrong with that), definitely get one that has a 16:9 mode option, though. I'm not aware if this model has it, but as I said, mine didn't. I had to do the "squeeze trick" in the service mode, and it didn't do it perfectly (it created some distortion on the sides of the picture).

    Good luck.
