I just don't understand the penis envy race to have the biggest and baddest TV these days. It's just a frickin' TV.<br><br>Anybody else hanging onto their '49 Philco until somebody prys it from their cold, dead hands?<br><br>

274 channels of commercials and embossed network logos in the corner... but look how clear it is!! Plus, with the space-saving design, I can fill my home—and my empty soul—with more meaningless crap.<br><br><br>
Regarding any tv, I don't think it's a "penis envy" type of thing. But if someone just has to have the 72" Big Screen.....then probably.<br><br>Personally I wouldn't mind having a LCD/Plasma TV because the crispness of the picture. Watching movies on a good tv is awesome. <br><br>Of course I still have my Mitsubishi 32" regular TV so I guess I'll just keep wishing for a LCD/Plasma one...perhaps a nice 40" one.<br><br>

The on button usually needs several tries to get all the guns firing, but it does okay on 3 (out of a possible 10) channels that I can choose from. For serious TV viewing (some of those other channels) we use the early 80's 5" B/W Quasar in the kitchen. It gets better reception. <br><br>

CRT's rule. Couple of months ago I picked up a 30" widescreen HDTV set. I like new stuff but I refuse to pay top dollar. The CRT is definetly the most bang for your buck. My 30" set was under $600 at Wallyworld. And compared to the lcd's, plasma's and projection screen models the CRT was the best picture. <br><br>

I've been researching new TV's lately, and all the best ones seem to be CRT- picture-wise anyway. So you're right in that respect.<br><br>Although factoring into my decision are size and weight, and all the larger CRT HDTVs weigh something close to a metric ton.<br><br><br>Back in Black...
