    It appears that the CRT types are still the most reliable.
    I was wondering if the HDTV CRT is just as reliable as the old SDTV? Do they have as many problems as the LCD and Plasma TVs?

    I found a place that still has the left over HD SONY KD36XS955 TV’s at a fantastic price.

    I would say that HDTV CRT's are the same as SDTV CRT's for reliability.

    Because picture details are finer on the HDTV, the convergence is more critical. I would expect that convergence errors are the same in terms of millimeters for both SDTV and HDTV but if the set has "100 point" electronic convergence, better picture quality is had.
