I hope you don't mind, Morpheus
, if I pop in with a question of my own.
Our TV has just died (we think; there's a possibility it might come back), but there isn't exactly a lot of money in the bank and we can't afford anything much more than CDN$500; $699 would probably be just pushing it. From the small amount of browsing online, that looks to mean a 720p set. Is it really such a crappy deal if we got one of those instead of a 1080? We aren't looking at a Blu-Ray player in the near future, so right now it would only be up-converting from a standard DVD player.
ETA: Oh, and it would be a 30-35" screen. Don't really need bigger than that.
