Default toshiba widescreen question

hi. thought id ask anyone here in the no which of the two
TVs below would be best value for a room that has no direct
sunlight. I mean,, is it worth paying the extra 40 quid for
the flat screen if there isnt any direct sunlight, and also
if the actual screen size is smaller on the flat screen tv?

Model: 28W33 - non flat screen
http://www.be-direct.co.uk/shop4/pro...s.asp?id=12298

flat screen type
http://www.be-direct.co.uk/shop4/pro...s.asp?id=12570

was thinking of pairing either up with the Toshiba dvd on
Amazon http://makeashorterlink.com/?H4C924045

thanks for any info. Graham

DON'T by the non flat model, it's not made in the Toshiba factory, and is a
'clone'. You will find similar sets under many budget price names. Toshiba
list it in the range so to have an entry level product. The flat screen
model is far superior and (I think) still made in the Tosh factory in
Plymouth def tosh design. There really is no comparison in the two sets.

Cheers

the flat current tosh chassis is in fact the well known vestel chassis.
BUSH GOODMANS MITSUBISHI BLACK DIAMOND HITACHI and loadsa others.
we repair them for the trade from all over the country and they are nasty.
esp. the psu.
they really are entry level products and are giving manufacturers a bad
name.
as the other contributer said leave well alone
