Summary: If you want to get into HD for the least amount of money, and for the best possible picture... get this tv. LCDs and Plasmas may look trendy, but overall performance, a good CRT is still better than LCDs or plasmas and for the price, you can't do better.
Pros: Price - I got this much cheaper than msrp. It's an HDTV, 16:9, built in VCR, DVD, HDMI input. The picture is awesome. It's a lot better than LCDs IMO. I haven't watched an HD broadcast, but I'm already impressed by the picture quality of DVDs and my X-Box.
Cons: Weight. It weights a ton, you need a good sturdy tv stand. My stand is rated to hold 110lbs, but this tv is about 95lbs and it's a bit wobbly so I may need to get a higher rated one. I can't really say that weight is a con, since it's expected from CRTs.
