Hi all,
I have been looking at HDTV's for sometime now and me and my wife decided that we are not going to spend more then 1500 for a TV so 1500 is my max price range. Can anyone recommend a good TV for that price?

Try looking at Crutchfield.com or cnet.com for models and pricing. :)

I would recommend a 52" RCA Scenium for around $1200. RCA is very underrated with HDTV's, good tv at a good price.

I assume you want a CRT because you're in this section. Sure, you could get a really nice sharp 32" or higher CRT for one and a half G's, but have you considered whether you might instead want a much bigger rear-projection TV, or a slick and sharp smallish LCD or Plasma. You have some flexibility with that budget. Once you know the size and image type you want, then ask us again and we can probably tell you more precisely.

If it's about picture size as well as price, then check out Sony's latest
High Def rear pro. HD monitor (the one with the CableCard and HD Tuner is a bit more expensive). If it's about pic quality and not so much about size, then Sony's 34XBR910 wide tube (the 955 is more expensive now). The 910 can be found online cheaper than C City and Crutchfield. ;)

At Crutchfield the Toshiba 34HFX84 is priced at $1599 and is a very good product. Shipping is $20 extra. Perhaps you could watch for this TV going on sale, or you could stretch your budget just a bit to get this really excellent TV.

The Toshiba 34HF84 is a bit cheaper but only has one HDMI and lacks some menu options but is an identical picture tube for a couple of hundred less!
