Samsung TXP3271H

Hi all. Anyone have any experience with this model - or general input
on the '04 vintage Samsung HD CRTs? Pretty tough to find any reviews
out there...

    I have a smaller one... a TXP2670WH. The best point: plain old CRTs
    give you far better picture than anything else for the money. The
    worst point: the CRT in this model uses too coarse a dot pitch, so if
    you sit closer than six feet you see vertical striping, especially in
    white areas. A Sony or Toshiba avoids that problem, but you pay
    significantly more.

    It does a good job at upconverting NTSC content without leaving you
    with a picture full of artifacts, as a lot of last year's HDTVs tended
    to do.

    Another minor bad point: when it's struggling to tune in a bad signal,
    it often doesn't hear the buttons you push on the remote.

    All in all, it's somewhat short of ideal HDTV quality, but I found it
    to be a fine value.

    Three more strikes against CRTs:

    1. They're HEAVY!!! A 30" HDTV CRT weighs in easily over 100lbs. A
    30" LCD weights about 1/3 that amount.

    2. CRTs use substantially more electricity.

    3. CRTs require a lot more space compared to the 3-4" depth of an LCD
    screen.

    3.5. They're HEAVY!!! 8-)

    Cheers,

    So it's heavy. My $650 CRT still has a far better picture than your
    $2000 LCD.

    Thanks for all the replies, Guys. But the CRT debate is pretty much
    irrelevant to me, as right now a CRT is realistically all I can afford.
    I'm looking for more of a feel as to whether this model or the TXP
    line generally is a decent choice among CRT options. I can get the
    3271H for $380, which seems like a decent deal based on all the pluses
    and minues. Just not easy to find many reviews out there...

    I suppose that if you are a college student or move several times a
    year, the weight of the display would have some meaning. My TV weighs
    nearly 300 pounds and it hasn't been moved since 1997.

    Heh. I'm happy the fellow's $650 boat anchor has a great picture.
    Personally, I like being able to hang my display on the wall and not
    have it take over my living room (that role is reserved for my
    Magnepans). I also like the fact that it uses substantially less power
    and is easy to move around (if I should desire to move it). Just a
    couple of fingers under the conventient carry handle on top and away ya go.

    Cheers,

    Well, now we know why having a low power display is important to you...you
    need all the power to run your speakers. :)

    Heh, a man's got to have his priorities. As I get older, my ears seem
    to outperform my eyes. 8-)

    Though I'm going to be switching over to a digital amp for the Maggies
    soon. I suspect that will dramatically lower power consumption as well.

    Cheers,

    Why vacuum under an RPTV. Especially one that is on top of a sub woofer
    that weighs more than the TV.

    Darn, Jeff, that was going to be my SAA but you beat me to it.

    Deeg,

    I don't have much repair experience with Samsung CRT sets, but what I do
    have has not impressed me. You might want to post in sci.electronics.repair
    to see if there are any Samsung ASCs that are familiar with the recent
    history of the line and similar chassis reliability.

    Besides, all those dust bunnies provide extra acoustical damping...

    The real reason to vaccuum is to break connectors while moving it so that we
    will have to service the set. Then when we do, we won't have to deal with
    the dust.
