Just out of curiosity, when was the last time a console tv was made? I saw RadioTVnut mention a Zenith manufactured in 2001 that was a console. I have seen some locally that were made as late as '02 (Zenith upright-style console set with the built in glass doors at the bottom). They were rumored to have been around until 2004, but I have never seen one made after '02. Other than Zenith, I think almost all the other brands were done with consoles by 2000. There was a crap transition period with silver plastic crap from '05-08 along side 4:3 LCD sets in which nearly everything seemed cheaply made (worse than black plastic crap) including high-end plasmas and projection sets.

I think the last year for RCA consoles was 2000. Zenith did make them until around 2004, B27A74R and B27A76R come to mind. I remember around that time they had a catalog that had a high def CRT console, but I never saw one.
