There are some gimmics like 100Hz, Progressive scan,
According to standards set by VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association), the frequency required to attain flicker-free display with a CRT is 72Hz, not 50Hz.

Yes, progressive Scan has nothing to do with Broadcast media in India, but if you have a 720P/1080P/Progressive Up Scan DVD Player or a HTPC, then interlaced CRT is a joke: DVD Player Benchmark - Part 5 - Progressive Scan DVD

Go for Sony. But, these days 29" TVs are quite cheap.

Don't go for Samsung CRTs.

The reason am going for a 21inch is the room where am planning to keep the TV is too small.. 29 would be so huge and spoils the ambience.. Dint know this much informations are available .. Mobike is right about the samsung CRT, yesterday i watched cricket in a samsung,but picture quality never came in the range of Sony..

Starvegabound, great write up there, thanx
Jenniffer-philips was out of question but now i need a look into the stuff

Thank you everyone for all your views. All were informative.guys more inputs please.

Have an LG 21" for the last three years. Satisfied with the picture quality. The turbo feature for sound is awesome! The golden eye feature is no good. It has AVL and it is very helpful. I have seen some TV sets which don't have this and it becomes very difficult to change channels with volume on.

Child lock is a good feature if you have toddlers at home. Check the feel of remote in hand. Should not be very heavy or large. The most used buttons should be easy to access and press. Have seen BPL sets where changing channels was difficult. All the best!

I think LG wins in the service section.. ..My LG CRT monitor was once replaced fully by LG people when it crashed due to some electric shortage.They did that too within few days of my complaint.the guarantee was going to end that month.. i was truly lucky on that fact.It had 3 years guarantee..
i'm so obssessed on sony coz it has the best picture tube around..Can anyone point out some negatives for Sony CRT's.

I had a Samsung Plano 21inch for a little over 4 years & had absolutely no issues with it. Last year upgraded to Sony Wega 29 which has brilliant picture quality.

If the price for a Sony suits you then look no further else go for LG/Samsung

Does not help if the TV is connected via a Set Top box (cable/ dish etc)
Since you don't change the TV channel.

SONY.....all the way! If it is out of budget, go for LG, which IMO is much better than Samsung. My opinion is based on the picture quality, which should be the prime consideration while buying a CTV.

Cheers,
Deepak

Some one recently told me that Sony has stopped CRT Tvs & is focussing only on their Bravia range.

If this is true then I would suggest that pick up whichever Sony model is available.

Any issues you have faced, or based on hearsay?

I have a Samsung 21" Slimfit CRT which i have been using since the past 3 years. My usage is very minimal and generic, and no great demands in terms of sound quality and features. It serves my purpose. cost me about 10 grand when i bought it.

If i have the money, i would anyday settle for a Sony.
