    Need good place to buy new Canon Digital Rebel.

    your safest bet is B&H Photo video or Adorama. Ritz is offering free shipping and some software extras. Or you could pre-order at a local Best Buy and they will get it for you in about a week. OR you can be brave and get the brand new ones being sold on e-bay.

    Is this a good deal? (CRT for HDTV)

    A 40x81 today would be worth a $1000... tops. You need to be sure that the unit does not have burn or heavy usage wear. Seems like either that person doesn't know what his unit is worth, or is really not into front projection. Visit AVS Forums and check around the experts there. Ask if...

    4k on a projector...which would you get?

    Lack of blacks is just ONE of the problems with digital projectors. In fact the lack of good blacks can be corrected to a greater extent to be close enough to theater levels. Remember CRT's give blacks that are blacker than those at the theater. Digital projectors need not be that dark. They...
