Sony had a 40" CRT the model was kv40xbr800 and it was really heavy, they made a killing of the price of the stand for it, so the RCA 38" wasn't the biggest

2 things, it is the largest widescreen tube ever made. The Sony that was referred to above is a 40 in square, my father in law had one.....weighed over 300lbs. Point#2: I too have the 38 RCA and it works great too. It's been unplugged and in basement for longer than 5 years and I turned it on today to see if its worth moving to our new home and it is, although I would rather take $100 for i and never have to move it again.

Default I've still got mine

Still going strong after 10 years. Great picture and a nice piece of furniture. My sister has had several other TVS since I bought mine, one a 36 inch RCA that looked similar but not like mine. It died after 3 years. I've had a few LCD 32 inch since, but sold them and go back to this. Mainly because i don't want to have to move it! I hope it goes on working for a long time.

I would say pass and be afraid, be very afraid. RCA TV's are not known for their reliability.

I was hoping someone on here would have the same set and could let me know how theirs has held up, or if it's worth paying $270 for?
Very common problem with this tv is Flyback failure, nothing major ...but $270, I thinnk it is too much.

Great set, still have it working great. 13 years. Bought it when HD didn;t exist.
I bought Dtheater DVHS machine and certain movies just to enjoy the HD.
Heavy as any TV I have ever seen and takes up a lot of room but still nearly as
good as any modern Samsung which I also own and have hanging on a bedroom wall weighing what 20 pounds.

There old CRT HDTV's just will not die.

I have a Magnavox 34" wide screen HDTV that we still use, but it does not have a ATSC tuner, and the only HD inputs are component.
