well some times its cheaper to keep her. as long as it still has a good pic. its always a roll of the dice. it might run for years. then it might not make it to the end of the month. as far as which brand. they're all pretty much made by just 1 or 2 manufactures'. i worked for sony so that what i own. and im lucky there still running. ive had them for years. you can get some good deals on LCD displays. plasmas' are still to expensive. just make sure you spend the extra $$$$ and make sure its HDTV ready. NEVER BUY FIRST GENERATION ANYTHING. wait till about 3 years then they have all the software bugs fixed. and LCD and plasmas' have been around long enough. don't buy tube. like you have now. tubes are on the brink of extinction. id buy LCD. they look great. luck Gary

Gary, thank you very much for the prompt replys to my questions. Right now I'm at the forks of the road on what to do about my TV situation; fix it or buy a new one and if I buy a new one what kind do I buy (the HDTV stuff is very confusing to me...HD Ready; HDTV; HD Monitor; CableCard; Enhanced Definition (ED); settop box needed; integrated tuner; etc.). What you gave me was exactly what I needed. Thanks again...I'll definitely use your advice and guidance as I proceed to make a purchase now or in the future. Thanks especially for hanging in there for me on this very perplexing issue.
