Hey guys! My birthday is next wednsday and I need a new TV for my room. But I dont know what kind to ask for. I want a High Def. I dont want my uncle to spend a lot of money. I want a 20' TV. What is cheaper an LCD, or Plasma? Or is there another kind like the two that is cheap? Thanks guys!

You'd be better off asking in Tech...

And I know little of the subject, but an LCD is less quality than Plasma, so therefore cheaper. Also, the techies may need to know how much room you have to spare, since a CRT (one of the big fat ones) can have a better picture than an ultra-thin T.V.

^LCD is better when under 40" (generaly, dont hang me on this), so you'll need a 20" LCD, but keep in mind that they arent as big as a 20" crt, since its widescreen, the most. you will need it with HD too, so when they shut down the analog and turns on HDTV, you are covered

Thanks guys, I saw a CRT TV for $399! My TV w/a built in DVD player was $399! Does the CRT TV have those little black lines inside of the TV that you see when you look close. Because on the one I have right now they are HUGE and it bugs me to see them.

CRTs are the old style of TV, the ones that are very thick with a glass screen, simaler to the old school computer mointers. If I were you i'd just get a CRT. On a 20 inch you'd never notice the detail and you can get some nice ones for like 200 bucks with a bulit in DVD player or VCR (Or both).
