    I checked 'waiting for the price to come down' but that's only partially right. For our small living room our 29" CRT is still okay. I'm really just waiting for it to die. It's almost 12 years old. Anyone know the life expectancy on these?

    You can get a 32" 1080P LCD for under $150 now.

    That's cool. Maybe by the time the CRT dies a 42" will cost that much. Seems I've seen 42s for $200 somewhere already.

    Depends on the result of a complicated formula involving how much you want a new TV, your desire to stick to your philosophical guns, your income tax refund, and the feasibility and believability of an across-the-kitchen-accidental-wounded-soldier-bottle-toss. Accuracy counts.

    In short, the more you want it to die, the longer it will last.

    No no. The CRT is only 29". But you're welcome to try it.

    So you're keeping a crappy 29" TV when you could buy one bigger and better for less than $200....

    SMASH IT!!!!

    Main TV is a Samsung 46" LCD purchased for $1200 approx 8 yrs ago. LEDs at the time were just coming into play and the same TV was going to be $600+ more.

    I don't have any real reason to upgrade it. Samsung makes nice TVs then and now

    I pair it with a blu Ray player for nice quality movie watching
