OK. Our TV died rather abruptly. Time to get a new one. I haven't been keeping up much on the technology so I'm turnin' to yall. - Probably going to get a flat-screen. - Doesn't need to be huge, though it won't hurt to get one larger than my current ~31" tube. - We do watch DVDs though not that often anymore. We're not technophiles or anything but I wouldn't mind keeping up with the times tech-wise. - Wife is expecting somewhere in the $700 range, I'm thinkin' that's kind of low. - There's LCD-flavoured and plasma flavoured? What's the diff? What do I want? - Does the type of cable service I have play in? Currently, we just have regular old cable. I don't really see the advantage in digital cable, except for the usual better pic, etc. - Do I have a choice any longer about whether I get a HD set versus a regular set? - I assume it will still hook up to my stereo with only the usual amount of heartache. - Waht about brands? What brands should I avoid? Should I stick with name brands and avoid the derivatives? - Is a warranty is good investment?
