Here's the situation: the only time I ever watch TV is maybe 3-4 Netflix DVDs a week. I have no interest in cable or local TV watching, other than the occasional weather forecast or news broadcast. Am interested in upgrading only because 90% of Netflix DVDs are now letterbox only, and though my DVD player has a zoom function I don't like knowing that 1/4 of the picture has been chopped off. Here's what I have: a truly humble 20" Panasonic curved CRT, about 4 years old, doesn't even have S-video let alone component video inputs. To give you a good idea of just how unpicky I am when it comes to video, I actually think the picture quality of DVDs on my ancient RCA connection is pretty good! My 3 choices, in no particular order: 1. Sharp Aquos 26" LCD, around $1300 online shipped after rebate. Super sharp, and 16:9 ration great for all the letterbox DVDs I watch, supposedly has more letterbox viewing area than a 32" 4:3 TV. Cons: 4 times the cost of other choices and not sure how durable LCD is in the long run since it's such a new technology. Not sure about long term reliability of Sharp products against the biggies like Sony, Toshiba, Panasonic, etc. 2. Toshiba AFA33 32" curved CRT, $350+tax at local Target. Always rated best picture quality for curved tube TV by Consumer Reports, great reliability record, despite screen size is not very deep so no new stand required. 3. Sony 27" flat CRT, $350-400 + tax locally. Best picture quality of a 27" flat CRT I've seen, it's a good 33% more screen than my current 20" and still doesn't require a new stand unlike the hulking 30" (16:9) and 32" (4:3) flat CRTs. My top priorities: 1. Budget. I really don't watch that much TV to really want to invest much money in it, I'm a lot more into audio. 2. WAF: she loves the compact sleek looks of flat panels. 3. Mobility: am currently in an apartment and will move again at end of lease probably, so don't want to lug any mammoth leadweight box around esp. since I will only live in 2nd floor or higher apartments. Also don't want to have to buy a new stand to accommodate a big TV that's why I've ruled out 32-36" flat CRTs. Don't need sound quality since my DVD player is hooked up to a pretty decent audio system. Wouldn't mind having an LCD projector but buying $250 replacement bulbs scares me plus the added expense of the screen and need for low-light conditions are other deterrents. Are there any decent LCD projectors well under $1000 out there? Anyways, your opinions and comments would be most appreciated. At present I'm leaning towards the Toshiba, I can't quite overcome my reluctance to spend 4 times as much on the Sharp which I'll be using less than 10 hours a week. I know there are cheaper offbrand LCDs out there like Olevia but am leery of buying something that might die on me shortly after its 1 year warranty is over. Thanks!
