I did a lot of research, and for the $$ went with the Philips 27" flat screen. It has a ton of features (audio/video). I wasn't sure how it would work, but it has 'Incredi-sound'....and wow, blows my old set away! I chose it mainly because of the picture quality and the sound options for an analog TV. The speakers are 10 watts, may not sound like a lot but note most out there are 3-5! Ya just don't know how pitiful your life is til you don't have a TV (went 3 days) I went to Sears, used thier price guarantee and saved a bit of $$ too! A bit of research CAN help!
