    After years with a 22" Sony Trinitron (about 13 years, it's still a great TV), I am looking to improve my television set. I have been looking at the Samsung TXN3098WHF. It is within my budget of $2K in good ol'Canadian pesos.
    I really liked the picture quality (I compared to my current TV and one friend has the 60" Grand Wega another the 50" Samsung skinny/light DLP thing)
    Is this a good TV to go with? Any other recommendations?
    Do they make a widescreen format in a bigger screen (ie 34" would be ideal for the room)?
    Just to be sure (in case anyone didn't get it from above) I really know nothing about this stuff.
    Any help is appreciated.
    My goal is to get something within the month.

    The 30”Samsung is a nice TV with a reasonably good picture, especially for DVD & HD. It is my impression that the internal NTSC tuner is not quite the caliber of some of the more expensive models.

    Panasonic made a 30, 16:9 model for a few hundred more than the Samsung, but I have not seen it for several months.

    There are several 34”, 16:9 direct-view (CRT) models available right now. I think that the newest ones will all cost over $2,000, but you can probably find something like a Sony 34KVXBR800 for under $2,000, as it is being replaced by a newer model. Panasonic and Toshiba make ones with very fine pictures, as well as the Sony.
