I bought the 34 inch widescreen wega. "34hs420".
Common price 1300-1600. As previously mentioned purchased at CompUSA for 1100.
Plenty of connections in the back for anything. Picture's great, but that's also coming from a guy who's been watching a 42" rear projection 4:3 that should have had an in home maintence on it 3 years ago. It's color and definition is horrid.
This board is absolutely terrific for intelligent opinions and info. People are not shy about sharing their likes and dislikes. And there's plenty of threads for virtually every TV - component - media on the market today.
As for the receiver, I bought the cheap walmart US Digital to get me through the playoffs until I can figure out which HD service to do (comcast vs. Directv).
just do a search at walmart for "DB-2010"
No DVI connection but it was a breeze to connect and set up. 10 minutes tops. Component connections work just fine.
