The opening is 36" wide and both are 35" wide.

I looked at several different sites today. If I want to go with a 120Hz model, the Insignia is the "best deal."

I bought a 32" Insignia HD 1080P two years ago, similiar space limitations. It works fine, picture quality and audio quality are good. The gf is happy and that's all that matters. Busted a gut at the Young Frankenstein reference. What a great cast Mel Brooks put together.

Unfortunately, BB does not have the RCA on display.

Ask them to put one on display. Side-by-side comparison will probably be the best way to determine which one you like.

I really wouldn't agonize that much over a purchase between these two.

O.K., I'm going to state the obvious here.

This is why I never would subscribe to a enclosed cabnet of limited demensions. While it was "ok" for the crt's, it now becomes a hinderance in choosing a decent flat screen. No offense intended, after looking at the picture, it's a nice piece of furniture, but what is the focuse here? If you end up buying a crappy tv to fit the decor, the furniture will look better than the tv.
Can the tv go on top, allowing you to buy a better tv? It's hard to judge the height looking at the picture.

I know alot of people are fussy about decor and such, but if you want to enjoy that tv, think about it.
If on the other hand the tv is just a mode to put you to sleep, well, choosing a smaller inexpensive tv would do the job.

One thing though, no matter what you end up buying, when it comes to electronics, heat is always the enemy, so be sure you have enough space around it.
