    Any suggestions for a sub-30" LCD TV?

    I would prefer that it be HDTV, widescreen (16:9 preferred), and have both component and DVI connections.

    Oh, and I would like it to be under $1500, but for quality I"m willing to spend more :)

    I've found a couple that are no-names, and I'm not sure about their quality.
    And I've found a couple, but are kind of small (I'm planning on this lasting about 5 years as a primary tv, other than whatever big screen I buy myself for my birthday in 2 years)

    This one I like - but it's only 19"

    This one isn't HDTV ready, and it's response time seems really slow, but I've always liked the ViewSonic products

    Samsung 17" HDTV w/ speakers & PC Input + Free Shipping for $849 (little high for it's size, but good brand)

    IMHO, LCD and plasma still are not up to a point where they are a viable option.

    They still suffer from fuzzing, bluring, and still cant produce true blacks, true whites, or proper soft color transitions.

    CRT or RPTV is still the right way to go.

    If i had to pick one becuase of space issues, it would be LCD, but i still find neither to be worthy of true HDTV or HT videophile use.

    Really it's just for desk use to cut down on space, power consumption, and to improve upon my 13" tv from 1988 :o

    I'll be purchasing a good HDTV rear projection in about a year, year and a half. My current one isn't HDTV, and while I love the HDTV broadcasts, I don't want to spend the money quite yet as I have one that works for now. The reason I wanted an HDTV-ish LCD was for the higher possible resolution when I want to run 3 monitors off of my computer :o

    I'm just sick of a piddly little 13" crt with it's 1 speaker that's going bad and a washed out picture and no remote :o

    I'm also considering a couple from Dell since I get them at cost + 5% :kdubb:
