If you can get to a Best Buy or similar with large numbers of models

on display, you may discover that you don't want one...;-) Only the

largest and best of these look very good to me, and these are in the

$6000 and up category, too rich for me. The best buys are in CRT

models (select the demo model that looks best, and buy it only - not

a "boxed" sample that is unlikely to be as good...).
