What type of display do you mainly use for DVD viewing?

Please describe the type of TV set you utilize for DVD viewing, not the best set you own, but the one that is regularly used for DVD viewing.
If you do not use your best set for DVD viewing, then why not?

Model number and how long you have owned it would be interesting to note too. Photos would be nice too.

Here I start:

KD-34XBR960 - since July 2004

I'm still using my 27" flat screen Panasonic tube. Bought it about 2 yrs ago. I'm hoping for a fat tax return so i can finally get a 16:9 set.

26" Samsung 16:9 HDTV. It's only 2 weeks old. It is perfect for my bedroom, which is where I do the majority of my dvd watching.

65" Toshiba RPTV, which I've had for a year now.

I kind of wish I had waited and bought a DLP instead.

27" Panasonic Tau TV flat screen TV that I got in 2002. I plan on upgrading when I finally get a new job. I can't have a rear Projection TV cuz I can't get it up my staircase in my apt.

32" Sony WEGA Flatscreen. We've got a 36" as well with a DVD player hooked to it, but mine's the only one that has a 5.1 sound system.

Been looking for a 42" 16:9 HD. Just kind of pricing them and checking dimensions. I only have 43.5" clearance in my cubbyhole, and only models with bottom speakers or no speakers at all will fit there. Most 42" LCD TVs are about 47" wide due to side mounted speakers.
