I need a new TV. My budget is no more than $1,000. I could find a good name brand CRT HDTV tv for that but LCD's and Plasma's are so freaking cool looking! :lol Not only that but LCD's far have superior picture. After doing a bunch of searching, I figured out I can either get a killer CRT HDTV or I could get a 32 inch no name LCD HDTV. Plasma would be killer but i've yet to see one for under a grand. Anyone have a no name LCD TV? I'm paranoid i'll buy a no name LCD tv and it'll end up being complete crap. Here's what my choices are when it comes to LCD's:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications ... 59&CatId=0

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications ... 86&CatId=0

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications ... 05&CatId=0

Its a shame name brand companies don't make a 32 inch for under a grand. :stu

Soyo makes good motherboards, I don't know about their tvs. Never heard of these other companies. Try to search for reviews for these.

With a $1000 budget, your options are pretty limited for high-definition.

I generally endorse LCD over the other formats, for several reasons:
- Lowest power usage (minimal impact on the electric bill)
- (Often) the sharpest image at any given number of inches.
- I've only seen 1080p supported by LCD screens.
- Relatively thin & light
- Extremely long lifespan

LCD's main weaknesses are its high cost-per-inch and inability to produce a "pure black" color.

Keep in mind that many computer monitors can be used as HDTVs if you have a tuner :)

I prefer CRTs also. About the only advantage the other technologies have over the CRT is size and weight. But of course that may be important to some people. However, technology is always changing and improving so, no doubt the CRT will become obsolete sometime in the near future. But for right now, everything being considered, I would go with the CRT.
