I am back. Still frustrated and confused on what a good TV would be. DLP, LCD, Plasma, RPTV, ect. Ack! I'd love a regualr Tube CRT thingy like I have had all my life, but they only go up to 30" for the 16X9 HDTVs! It seems that all the other kinds of TVs pale in comparison...So... 1: Play 1/2 or 1/3 DVDs, the rest is pretty much analog, non-HDTV but that might change someday. 2: I don't really watch TV in the dark, I know some displays don't look right in lit areas 3: I am looking for longevity, and watch TV about 12 hours a day 4: WS is a must, 42-50" 5: Since this is a more long-term thing, money isn't an object. I will deal with that when the time comes, but I will probably be able to afford whatever I want.
