Here is a few things I guess you should know 1. size of the tv isnt an issue, iam building an entertainment system for it so width and such does not matter, and I dont care if it is a CRT the extra size and weight doesnt matter. 2. the tv will be used solely for gaming, mainly right now with an xbox360 (pretty much the reason iam going for an hdtv now) 3. The smallest screen I will go with is a 30', and largest is a 36' however the ideal size I figure for me will be about 34' 4. My budget is around $1000 CND, however I get tvs at cost so lets just say my max is around $1500 CND MSRP. Now I have no idea what to look for, I hear LCDs are nice but with gaming can have several issues, and cant do true blacks. Which is why iam leaning towards a CRT. I have heard very few bad things about them, other than their size. Also is it true burn in is pretty much non-existent now? Also here is the tv iam tenatively looking at for 800$ http://www.toshiba.ca/web/product.gr...4771&category= thank you so much for any help.
