Wanting to buy a new HDTV for good price

I really want a new HDTV, but I only have at most $500 to spend. I am wondering if the Magnavox 30" Widescreen HD ready tv that is on sale at Best Buy right now for $499 is worth the price? Does anyone own one or have any information on it, like picture quality or anything else? It says it is a flat screen tube HD ready tv, does that mean it is still considered HDTV and if so, will the picture look as the same or close to that of normal HDTV's? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanx :D

It will probably look fine for a 30" CRT HDTV for the price. A HD Ready TV will require an external HD source like a cable box, satellite receiver or a ATSC receiver, so out of the box it won't show HD.
