    Television

    2 of my big ol' tube TVs took a crap. I need to buy one of those new fangled HDTV things. I don't have a lot of change to throw at one and I am sure the wife would like to stay under $750 if that would be possible.

    Any suggestions? Anything I should stay away from? Anything I should be looking for?

    If that is the name of the store, then no.

    we bought our HDtv at wal-mart when when bought a big house (up till then we'd been apartment dwelers and the biggest tv we had was a 20"). It was about 2.5 years ago...we didn't get a super fancy flat panel dlp or anything...it's a 37" Sanyo that I think is 780p or maybe less..it cost around $500 (which is why we bought that particular one). We just got HD service and it looks pretty nice, so I'd recommend Wal Mart (if you don't mind their deplorable employment practices and how they fuck the US market, which I don't)..my buddy just bought a 42" Vizio 1080p Flat panel DLP (the best techno that you can get at this point) for around $1000 at Wal Mart (so their prices are pretty good).

    If you have them around your area, i would recommend like
    HH Gregg
    Best Buy
    Sears
    Rex



    I picked up my HD Sony 46 inch 1080 I (interlace) for $650.00

    Mine was a floor model at sears, they through in a extra bulb just in case mine went bad soon. The bulb alone cost $215.00. They ordered it, and called when it came in.(free baby)!!!!!!

    My picture is great, analog, digital, and High Definition.

    The only thing i dont like, is not having my entertainment center to put the play station, dvd player, surround sound on.
    I need to buy a stand now with some type of cabinets/drawers.

    this is my input for ya!

    For the true HD, you will want to get the 1080 I television.
    YEAH, IM THE BERRIES, AND CHERRIES IN YOUR REAR VIEW MIRROR.

    Yup, Video Only is a store chain.

    However, I just checked at Costco (Washington based, but I am sure they are freaking everywhere now) and they have some excellent deals.

    The Target stores in my area seem to have pretty good prices, and a decent selection to compare.

    I got my son a 15 inch Magnavox on sale for $198 two years ago - great picture, and lots of hook ups for the Wii and VCR.

    The Costcos out here all carry the Vizios.

    Costco here has a whole line, but keep in mind you can always order on their web site and pick up at a store.

    depending on how big you want to go and how you want to pay, I just got a 55" Sony Bravia for $155 after tax for 24 months from Aarons.

    The Vizio's are very nice. We have been shopping, researching, and pricing tv's also. We have a big screen now but it is acting up...so it is getting replaced. We will be getting ours at either Best Buy or Costco. I would definitely get the 1080p if you can.
