you people who are amazed at plasma screens should go take a look at the biggest rank arena or toshiba HD CRT you can find. unless plasma screens have gotten ALOT better in the last 10 months or so (when i was shopping for my current TV)... i'm not sure if sony even has a CRT which can physically display HD resolution yet. they certainly didn't 10 months ago, but i guess 10 months is quite a long time in the world of electronics. if you're shopping for a non-HD TV, sony CRTs are simply amazing. then again, so are their price tags.
