Yes, but in another thread talking about a 20" Samsung panel I got for Xmas
I was told it would be a waste with my analog SD material. I can either use
only a portion of such a large panel, or have the picture scaled out and
looking not so good. The TV in my inquiry is 10 bucks more at Best Buy
right now, and as a bonus (for me) has speakers built in, something I've
gotten used to with my old CRT.
