So the old 27″ Sony TV — a 32″ CRT in the bedroom is — finally dying. Turn it on, and the screen goes on and off until its warmed up. I want to replace it with a bigger flat panel — I want 37″, the wife insists on smaller. Looks like 32″ will be the compromise.
I am torn between getting something really nice or a something that’s a really good deal. I am leaning towards the latter. The TV in the den is kickass — and I really don’t want to be tempted to watch anything other than late night TV before bedtime.
I started looking around for a replacement, and I was stunned at how much prices have freefallen. The NYT runs full page J&R ads most days, and the discounts have been pretty deep.
Here’s what I scared up:
Are there any better suggestions?
I’m leaning towards the cheap Panasonic VIERA X1 Series TC-L32X1 — a 2009 model that comes with an iPod doc — it turns the tv set into a audio system.
