TV!!

Our 21 year old, 27" Sony Trinitron decided to take a hike yesterday. We were watching news channels from the morning and at around 2030ish we heard one phat followed by another phat and a burnt smell....

The TV powers on, but no picture. It has been having its problems for the last couple of years now, we've decided its time to get a new one.

Any suggestions? :)

PS : I was looking at Sony India's website & noticed a boo-boo. Apparently, today is 27 December, 104. Heh

LG's 29" Flatron is pretty good. But in comparison to Sony, LG is okay okay.

In CRTs, LG is pretty good -- I don't think Sony Trinitron is significantly better than it. The sound system in Sony might be better but I'd prefer to have amps or something to take care of the sound instead of the TV itself.

Get Samsung or Philips. The former is decently priced, while the latter switches between channels the fastest (unlike the 'pause' that you encounter when you channel-surf with other TVs).

Ok. For some reason I'm more inclined towards LG over Samsung.

I'll look at Philips as well, but then if only Sony was more affordable here....

Philips takes ages to switch between channels!

I bought a 29" LG Flatron to replace my 21 year old Sony Trinitron...

It's been good so far.

Ok, that's nice.

How much did it cost?

I bought it about a year ago ... some 30+ K ... I hear it's in the 20s now.

The 104 is a standard perl newbie bug. Newbies don't realise that perl stores the year as number of years since 1900. You'll also see stuff like 19104 or 20104

But that still doesn't explain Beverly Hills 90210.

Ugh.
