OK...here is the deal. I have searched and read about a million threads and they have answered a few of my questions but not all. Current display is a toshiba 32" CRT tube that is about 11 years old, and how I love it. But now that I am putting off buying a house for a year, I am going to treat myself to a new TV to make my apartment living more enjoyable. So I am looking for a 40 to 51" display that will be mainly used for DVD, some Xbox, and SD cable TV. There is no major light that could obstuct the light on the tv as we will be putting in a dark drape of the balcony window. I may upgrade to HDTV in the future, but not until I buy a home, and it is not of any major concern. My budget is $1500 to $2200 CAD or $1200 to $1800 USD. Now to come right out, I'm not looking for places to buy them, I will be buying it at either Best Buy or Futureshop here in Canada due to their equal payment, no interest setup. What I am looking for is advice on what models to look at and ones that have a good track record. Right now Futureshop has the Toshiba 51H84 on for $1799 CAD or $1450 USD. And although I am a huge fan of Toshiba I have heard of a few problems with this set. So, please help me with you suggestions and help me weigh my options. Hopefully I have answered all the questions that usually come back after somebody posts a thread like this.
