    I am very pleased with my over all set up besides my tv which I am considering replacing soon.

    I was browsing through the phillips outlet but wasn't really sure how good their tvs are.

    They often have a really good deal on a widescreen hdtv 30" for under 400$ I usually think you get what you pay for but have read some good reviews about the tv.

    However I do not watch a lot of movies, I play xbox on it and watch a few shows (maybe an hour a day)

    Not watching a lot of widescreen dvd's should I stay away from the widescreen televisions? if so are other phillips tvs good?

    The direct view Philips HDTV's are OK.
    I really like their CRT RPTVs.

    Do you watch a lot of DVD's??? If so, you would certainly start watching a lot of widescreen DVD's after you get your widescreen set.

    Your 4:3 material will seem very very small on a 30" though, so be warned.

    I always suggest at least a widescreen size that maintains at least the current/previous 4:3 displays size for those that are for the 1st time making the jump from 4:3 displays to a 16:9 display.

    I bought a 4:3 as I have just 100's of Laserdiscs, the 4:3 makes it nice for them. The Native 16:9 mode makes it nice for HD / scaled to 1080i DVD for me.

    So there is a lot to think about there.
