Hey I was just wondering if there was anybody out there on Freepay's flatscreen site that was looking forward to the WEGA like me? Now that there are no more large format TVs on the site, what do you plan on getting instead? I thought it might be a good idea to get the highest priced LCD and then eBay it to get money to buy the WEGA. It just seems like knod of a pain, and with all the work I've done getting these referrals I'm not looking forward to more work trying to sell it. Which LCD is the most valuable? Does anybody have any other ideas on this or know if Freepay will possibly make an exception and still give the WEGA to a few of us? From what Jake has said it sounds like there will be no more CRTs on the site, so chances are anything new that is added will be under 20". Major bummer. Help!

i like the 20" viewsonic. Dual 20" lcd/tvs would be sick

I am just going to kill myself ?

Jake said that they were took of the wega bc sony was going to discontinue the model soon, so hopefully a newer model or something comprable will be added.

he said they are staying away from CRT.

CRT? I meant like a comprable Sony TV.

Cathode Ray Tube - aka your 'traditional' television. As you can all tell, they won't be around much longer because the LCDs/plasmas are taking over. Hence, why we aren't carrying CRTs anymore.

We are only going to have LCDs on the site from now on. Large size LCDs are far too expensive for us to give away on an 8 referral basis so we are sticking to smaller ones.

wish i would of waited......oh well i still like my sony, as it stares angrily at me.

I'm not sure I would say CRTs are dead, otherwise companies like Sony wouldn't be releasing new ones (like the one replacing the old 27" WEGA that comes out this month). I really think there is still quite a demand for them, if just for the fact that it's still the cheapest way to get a large TV. But I don't run the site, so I guess I'll just have to stick to what they offer. Does anyone know which LCD would go for the most money on eBay?

They may not be dead yet, but they will be in the near future. Go to best buy and see how many CRT's they are selling.
