Flat tube Samsung

Posted by victory_tea2085 (My Page) on

Old RCA died and we need a tv. My God, the styles and types are mind boggling. Plasma, Lcd,flat tube, 720p,1080p etc. We are not going to be able to afford HD broadcasts from Dish network so I am thinking a flat tube Samsung with 720p, HD capability with a 4:3 aspect ratio would be our best bet. We watch sports and old movies. Do you think I am making the right decision? A big plus is the price as our "entertainment money" is severely limited since the birth of our 19 month old son "Caleb". Samsung has a very slim ( 16") flat tube on sale for around 550. Model # is TX-S3082WH. Any help greatly appreciated. Paul

RE: Flat tube Samsung

As long as you have the right cable to connect, and the matching connector on a HiDef source, you'll like it.
That model number is a 16:9 tube so its maybe equal in height to around a 25/27 inch @ 4:3 . And it's bulky/heavier than 'hech for one person to lift/carry/move around.

I was just going to buy one of those but cheaped out with a bigger pic so I can read the cable guide. 32" 4:3 sDTV, (sharp $209 open box) and it shows a way better pic on digital than analog. Amazing pic on digital channels once I got the HD cable box and cables for it. Sucky pic compaired on analog/s-video cable.
Figure the HDtv's will slowly lower in price and maybe in two yrs when a lightning surge takes this sDTV out, like my last one went, I'll find HD's cheaper, hopefully.

Thanks Mikie,
I,m hoping the analogue picture is much better than our old RCA as Dish wants 26 dollars a month to (on top of our already 60$ monthly charge) to send us HD. Paul
