I just bought a RCA 36" Flat screen HDTV P-in-P with all sorts of cool options for under $1200.
Two weeks later I had to return it because inputs were not working and it would squeel in the middle of the night when it was off and I was sleeping.
I wasn't taking any chances and returned it.
Maybe I just was unlucky, but a $1200 TV after two weeks should not do this.
RCA has a crap-load of features for the money, but overall, reliability is the key.
Just my input...
