Hi All, The 53" Sony KP53XBR200 just broke today with a bad pincushion effect with the green gun (green picture parabolas in on the top and bottom). Autofocus tries for awhile gives me a E17G code). It had just fallen out of extended warranty too: 1/1/2004 (grr...). Instead of fixing it, our family has decided to get a new TV. It's been about 5 years since I last checked in on what is available and am totally confused on all the latest and greatest. Looking for some broad and quick recommendations on what you would get in my situation or where to look and avoid another lemon. Size: Last size was good: 53" 4:3, so we're probably looking for about the same. Price: not a concern, but willing to spend 2000-3000 for a higher end and hopefully more future proof model. Other considerations: Looking to avoid Sony. Although the picture quality is great, all of our Sony TVs have died or have had problems after about 4 years of use (3 so far). Toshiba? Mitsubishi? Location: SF Bay Area, CA. Recommendations on local dealers or recommended internet shopping if you have them are welcome. 90% TV-regular 4:3 coax cable (not digital cable, HDTV capabilities are not required, but also see price considerations above). 10% DVDs A few other inputs for occasional VCR and etc. Appreciate all the help!
