My dad told me he would get me a new TV for Xmas but it must be $500 or under. This TV would primarily be used to play Xbox on and DVDs. I would like it to be hi-def. It doesn't have to be widescreen, because I know with any TV under 30" or so people say to stick to the 4x3 TVs. I'm kind of interested in the 27" Samsung EDTV, or possibly the Sony 27" VVega. I don't know what to to. I drawn to the Samsung because it is EDTV and can be made a HDTV in the service menu, but I've heard some not so good things about this TV. Help me guys! Please inform me about some other TVs out there in this price range that are even better than the 2 I listed!!! Thanks. BTW, he also mentioned something about a 25" Samsung widescreen, how is that unit?
