I want to get a TV for this upcoming academic year, and when looking at what stores like J and R, Best Buy, and Circuit City have online, I was surprised how relatively inexpensive widescreen tubes are. Because this TV will be in my bedroom, I don't feel that I need anything larger than 26" (and that's about my price range). Also, it will almost exclusively be used for watching DVDs. Philips has a non-HDTV widescreen tube which on paper seems to fit all my needs. So my questions are: 1. Can anyone comment on the quality of this TV? 2. Should I consider spending more and getting a HDTV-ready TV (keeping in mind how I will be using it). 3. Not including TV shows, about 35% of the films I own on DVD were made before the days of widescreen. I can't stand the way widescreen TVs stretch a 4:3 image, so, am I crazy watching 4:3 films on a 16:9 TV since the image will be so small, and should I just get a large 4:3 TV in that case? thanks for any feedback.
