    I have a friend who is in need of a new TV. Other than looking around for a used one, what are some of the better brands/models to consider in the "very inexpensive" price range of around $250 or so?
    It would be nice if there was a tv out there in that price range that lacked all the frilly useless features, yet had a pretty good tube, and maybe s-video, or even component inputs.
    Dreaming? I'm so used to shopping for mid-to-high-end stuff, that I'm at a loss to recommend something for her. And she was so nice by saying "I wanted to be sure to check with you before buying anything..." [​IMG]

    I would recommend a 27 Sharp with S-video for less than $300.

    Have her wait until December, when the new models come out. Sears usually has some super buys on discontinued models in December each year.

    Hey Kieran,
    Best Buy and CC both had a 27" Sharp in thier circulars for $250.
    IMO, Sharp and Sanyo make good TVs at affordable prices.
    It's a girl afterall KK, any TV will do.
    Or is this the older lady?
