The biggest tube set I know of was 40 inches and I heard the picture was awful. Thus, your three options are (1) rear projection, (2) Plasma, or (3) Front Projection. Since the last two are rather expensive, the best price/performance ratio is with rear projection. The first question you need to answer is if you are looking for a set that is HDTV ready (or includes an HDTV tuner). If the answer is you want HDTV, I would wait, as the price and performance is improving, and with limited source material, I think the wait is worthwhile. If you do not care about HDTV, I have found the best picture with the Pioneeer Elite models, and the worst with the Mitsubishi models. But, of course, this is only my opinion.
