Am I being cynical to see this as a marketing ploy from a company in trouble just looking for a soft target so it can appear like a good guy?

If the OP states there's a problem with reflections, then why would he want a TV screen with "almost no anti glare coating" ?????

Sharpness is a bit of a con. All it's really doing is adding noise to the picture in the form of a halo effect on the edges of objects. It doesn't add any more detail, so the best setting is whatever...

Given that it's a 28" CRT I'd say buy a secondhand CRT as a replacement. 50 for a decent 32" is about the going rate. Cheaper than a repair and pretty much an instant fix :)
