Related to my post below.. I was looking at the 56h80 picture playing George of the Jungle and also Star Wars Ep.1, and next to it was an 80cm direct view 4:3 Sony playing the same picture. The Sony seemed a lot brighter and the colours more vibrant than on the HD rptv. Im seriously considering buying the 56h80 based on all the glowing reviews, but yet it's picture seemed duller and more muted than that of the bright vibrant sony. Is this just a case of having to sit down and calibrating the 16:9 with Video Essentials, or is this what u get when you compare direct views with RPTV's. I read pple saying that the 56" wd Hd rptv's will produce much better images than direct views are capable of.. yet it didn't seem that way to me in the showroom with the lights off. R.
