Advertisements Sony KDL-26S3000 LCD. Used in a bedroom. All of the S3000 family seems to have excellent standard definition performance (read that as analog cable). I use it was a Series 2 w/lifetime plus I didn't want to throw more money at the cable co. for digital. Sonys aren't cheap but as Stevel points out, the CR article gives a good overview. Based on your purchase timeframe, you may want dig up a paper copy. It has a good plasma vs. LCD comparison and may point you in the direction you want to go. It's the November issue.
