    help me choose a TV....

    well i'm a newb to this whole HT crap, but i'm looking for an HDTV. i wanna keep costs as little as possible. i plan to use this for my xbox 360, dvd player, and general tv watching. (no HD service yet )

    here are some of my choice and price:

    http://sanyo.com/entertainment/telev...?productID=905 $575

    http://sanyo.com/entertainment/telev...productID=1116 $460

    saw both of those tv's with an HD signal and looked nice

    http://www.sonystyle.com/is-bin/INTE...e_27%22to32%22 $788

    http://www.consumer.philips.com/cons...ESHQVHKFSEKI5P $550 saw this in person too with an HD signal

    the sony is a little out of my budget, but if it blows away the rest i can make a reach for it.

    also this tv i believe i can get for about $375 but not sure yet http://www.consumer.philips.com/cons...ESHQVHKFSEKI5P

    CNET's highest ranked TV in your price range - http://reviews.cnet.com/Sony_KV_30HS...l?tag=topprods

    I wouldn't even look at the Sanyos ... Philips's build quality tends to be mediocre, although they tend to offer a lot of features for the price ... I've yet to have a bad experience with a Sony TV and their image quality is great.

    would you recommend that sony vs. the one i posted? is the widescreen better vs. the regular 4:3? i would think with regular tv watching the picture would seemed stretched. i can probably get that one cheaper then $799 at the store i have been dealing with

    Go to the store(s) and evalute each model and you will have a better grasp.

    i'm not picky, i'm more worried about quality actually. of the ones listed the only one i didn't see was the sony. my current tv is about 10 years old and the picture tube is going out. i just got an xbox 360 and probably in the future would like to have hd in my house. when running a video game through the component inputs, would it have the black bars on the side?
