Cheapest HDTV with 3 component inputs?

I am thinking about getting a widescreen HDTV in the near future, but I would like for it to have at least 3 HD, component inputs. I know I have seen a few TVs with 3, but I am unsure about the selection. Any help would be appreciated.

Best bet would be to go to bestbuy.com and do some comparisons.
Once you pick some your interested in, come in and ask some
questions. Otherwise we're shooting in the dark.

(This is what I did and my 65" Hitachi is going to be delivered
tomorrow)

Jason, you did all that stuff with Best Buy, and then bought something that Best Buy doesn't even sell? And now you tell Mike to do the same thing?

With people like you in the world, I will be out of a job soon.


Oh, this post was a joke. I do work at best buy, but I could care less if you buy something from me. I don't make anything either way.

All HDTVs have 3 component inputs.


Advent has an 27 inch HDTV for $499 and a 32 inch Samsung for $899.

Zenith has just jumped back into the TV market with a 32 inch HDTV (Model: C32V37) that has a built in HDTV tuner. The tuner will allow you to connect a powered antenna (about $59 for a 40db amplified signal) and receive all HDTV TV signal (CSI, Smallville, MNF...) for free. Check out the link below.

No, I was just giving him a starting point. As was pointed out to me
when I asked the same question a while back, it helps you guys
to know what kind of TV he's interested in, plasma, rp, ect. Also
if he prefers certain brands, what price range? Does size matter?
(I like to think it doesn't)

Best buy has a good comparison engine where you can look at
some brands, then you need to go out and check them out. I
ended up getting a great deal thanks to the help from someone
on the forum. Looking forward to getting it later today.

Jason

Oh, and son't worry, I'm doing quite a bit to keep the best buy
employees employed. I got $90 worth of Perfered customer
coupons yesterday.

Errr, not exactly. I am not referring to one set of inputs, but three separate sets of component inputs. Most HDTVs seem to have 2.

I bought a T.V. with 2 then got the Onyko reciever for 148 at ecost that does component switching. Upgrade your tv and stereo
