We have been holdouts for a new HD TV for a long time. Our Phillips CTR TV just ran and ran. But, alas, I think the color control module went out, then the whole picture. It was fun watching no TV with just the sound!
So we did our due diligence and decided to buy a Sharp TV/DVD combo at Wal-Mart for under $400. What a great TV! The picture is so sharp, and the stereo speakers are great. I wrote a review of the TV, and if you are interested just go to http://hubpages.com/hub/Sharp-HDTV-Model-LC-26DV27UT-Super-TVDVD-Combo for all the particulars.
Peace, and enjoy
