I am currently looking at several 27" flat TV's for my new apt. (I just separated from my wife). I was tempted to go with the Samsung clone (the Akai CFT2790), cause of what I have read here, but several people have tried to steer me away due to reliability concerns w/Samsung. The general opinion seems to be that the Toshiba is better built then the Samsungs, but the Sony are on top of both as well as the JVC's. What's the general opinion here? I can get the Sony FV17 for $599 or the FS13 for $499, the Toshiba 27AF42 for $439 or the Akai at Sam's Club for $350. I am currently leaning to the middle of the road... i.e. the Toshiba.
