I agree the old fashioned flat tubes still have the best overall quality, the big downside is they're heavy as tanks.

Simply put, YES.

It's something you really need to see for yourself to believe.

You can say that again, my tv is over 2ft deep and weighs over 200 pounds. When my basement was filling up with water I almost broke my back humping that thing up the stairs. But it doesn't make sense to me to spend all that money buying HD equipment and buy a pencil thin plasma or lcd when the picture quality is crap.

Consumer Reports magazine agrees with you, too.

The big problem with non CRT Tvs is that they cannot truely display the color black. Since black is technically the lack of all light a CRT is able to easily display a true black while LCDs and plasmas have to combine colors to make it. Most blacks wash out which you wouldn't think is much of an issue except that defintion is made by blacks. The nest generation of lcds and plasma will be far greater.

ESPN SD (standard definition) was not airing the game in HD. They probably had a message in A BIG FONT that said "Presented in HD", but below it in tiny font it probably said "Where Available".

Most of the stations do this now (i.e., show the "Presented in HD where available" message), and it's a little misleading. Perhaps they are using a single HD source and downconverting to SD for the standard definition channels.

Correct. They also suffer from smear. As most of you know the liquid in those TV’s is charged into the colors and shape of the picture it is displaying. Occasionally when you’re watching a sporting event and the camera moves quickly when following the action the charger and liquid can't keep up and the pictures smears. I recently read in an electronics magazine that unfortunately there won't be many more glass HDTV’s produced because no one is buying them anymore. It makes want to go out and buy another one right now just to have it in reserve incase anything happens to mine.

How about you tell her:

"Your astute choice of electronics is a sign of your strength as an independent woman. Now kneel down and give me head. "

It might work.

I can feel your pain. My 32 inch WEGA weights 180 lbs, and it's not the weight that bothers me, but how awkward the bastard is to carry it. Damn thing is so front heavy.

Re: Hi-def

I have a 27 inch panasonic tau and it goes about 100 lbs, I agree BD the thing is so damn awkward to carry. It has built in handles on the side that are totally useless because of where they are located. Thank god I'm hiring movers for our upcoming move.
