Need help deciding between the upcoming 9" crt Diamond Mits 65" or the HLN61 Sammy. I'm only going to be using dvd and my current RCA DTC-100 sat box. I will be upgrading the dvd with either the one with DVI outputs or a htpc with dvi. I guess I need to know which would be better for picture and future proof. I think the two will be comparable in price.

Hi,
I don't know about the HLN61 Sammy, but the mitsu is not coming out to sale in about 2-3 months. If you're not in a hurry, you should wait to see picture of this baby. With it's new 9" CRT it looks awsome!!! The price should be around the 5000-6000.

I considered the same choices and went with the Samsung HLN617W. I couldn't be any happier with my choice after having had it in my home for a couple of weeks!

I was considering a Mitsu when I stumbled across & bought a Sammy DLP instead. Very happy with the set.

I'd recommend you look at the Sammy HLN61 over the Mits for many reasons. It's light, slim, has perfect geometry, no burn in, absolutely fantastic HD, and has the most versitile input jacks in the HDTV scene. I have the 50" version which I'm using it as a HDTV and one HUGE computer monitor. Posted Image

Definately go for the DLP. Wider viewing angle, more versatile connections (and more of them), slimer, lighter less glare and has XGA capability.

I went out and looked at every hi-end and chain electronics store yesterday and discovered the Sony 60" lcd television. I think I found the one. The Sammy looked great but it had a flicker issue with some of the scenes I was watching. The sony looked just as good if not better without any flicker issues. Now I have to see what the new GWIII will offer before I buy. Anyone have any info about the 3rd gen LCD's from Sony?

The flicker issue is reportedly fixed according to AVS forum members who've contacted Samsung. Check out this thread:

I'm new to the forum, so I hope I'm not asking a repeat question.
I'm trying to decide between the 50 DLP or 50 Sony LCD. I play a lot of video games, so I'm concerned that the rear projectors cause burn in. Another remote possibility is the Panasonic LCD. I've seen a lot of positive comments regarding the DLP, but I haven't seen very much insight regarding the LCD's.
Any pros/cons for either models would be greatly appreciated.
I'm mostly concerned with reliability and picture quality.
Thanks in advance.

No burn in worry for DLP. As far as which is better, I choose DLP, but I do think it is a personal choice. Try to demo the sets next to each other if you can.
