Summary: I bought this TV a couple of months ago to connect to my Toshiba DVD using the component video input. The TV has a very nice picture. Like any TV this size, you should sit at least 8 feet away. Using the special componet video inputs, the picture is VERY noticably better than using standard (RCA) video connectors. If you have a DVD player with these special outputs, this makes an excellent choice for a tube TV.
