Hope this new little area get some visitors. [​IMG] Was thinking about the Sharp 36" tube. Would like a good picture. Sound unimportant. Also s-video. Thanks

    As the second poster I will recommend looking at the JVC 36" which also has a component input along with an s-video input.

    And I am really happy with my GE 31", and I also liked the GE 36", has all inputs.

    Check out the Sony's too.

    In this size I'd look at JVC, Tosh, Hitachi, and Panasonic. The Panny and Hitachi can be the sleepers in the crowd. The best thing for me is to go someplace that you can see the sets side-by-side setup reasonably (not CC or BB if possible). See which one looks the best...I've done this with my last 3 or 4 TVs and got different brands in different sizes (Hitachi in 60", Tosh in 35", JVC in 27", and Hitachi in 27") over the last couple of years. If you can find a place where the TVs are setup nicely you're eyes will guide you. sometimes the good guys are the best for that, but they are usually too much.

    If you're in the Bay Area, Seattle, or Portland go to Video Only the beat everyones prices and setup their TVs nicely.

    I have a Proscan 36' non-HDTV set and it is superb. Even thoe it is not under $750 more like $1200 I would definetly recommend it to anyone who could afford it.

    I would just add to also take a look at Samsung. From what I saw over at audioreview.com I understand most of the better Samsung models from 20" to 36" will do the squeeze trick for dvd's by selecting it in the tv's menu sustem. Plus they have component, S-Video & composite inputs. The big thing I like about the Samsung sets are they have more audio watts than most of the sets plus bass, trebble & balance controls which a lot of the cheaper models don't have. My first pick would be a JVC though.
