Good sub$200 TV?

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Time to get rid of my ol CRT TV and move up to an HDTV one. I have enough money for a simple one I think, so I ask, what's a good TV for $200 or less?

I don't require much. I'll be happy with 720p (but if one were to find a 1080p TV for under $200, all the better), I'm not expecting to get a huge 50+" TV (partly because it wont fit in my room all to well, and mostly because I highly doubt one exists for the price I'm asking), as for ports, I only need a component port or two, an HDMI port or two, and so on. Nothing fancy for Old Ben!

Oh, and I would like it to be bigger then my computer monitor in terms of physical size, so 22" or bigger! (yeah, I have a 19" monitor, so what?)

Suggestions?

Interesting interesting. Sucks there's no Micro Center in this state or any bordering state where I live.

Also, that's a monitor, not a TV. And by that I mean it doesn't have ANY of the hookups I want, just computer ones.

Haha, it's fine it's fine.

I'm kind of looking at this one:


How's the brand? I've never heard of them before, but then again, I'm still using a CRT TV.

sub $200 is probably going to be pretty hard without getting some no name brand.

$250 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001381

currently out of stock but $228

looks to be a subsidiary of sykno ,synko something like that looks similar to one over here with their original branding but they are a bigish brand worldwide
