I am looking for an HDTV in the sub $2000 range and in the past few months I've done a fair amount of research, concluding that a 30-34" direct view CRT would be the best bet for a smaller room. CRT rear-projection first seemed like a good choice, but I watch a fair amount of standard 4:3 tv plus I play video games, so the danger of burn-in cropped up. Additionally, CRT rear-projections are a bit too tall and their narrower viewing angle sealed their coffin. DLP rear projections seem to avoid these concerns, but they are out of my price range. My question now is, can a HDTV CRT display the full resolution of a 1080i signal? Most reviews that I've read discuss the picture quality and mention what HDTV standard the CRT displays at, but are these TV's (Sony, Toshiba, Phillips, etc.) really showing the full detail of HDTV, like for instance an LCD or DLP can? Can one detect a difference in resolution and detail between a top-of-the-line CRT and another, newer technology when both claim to be displaying a 1080i signal? Is there any point to buying a HDTV CRT, or should I just wait for the prices of other HDTV technologies to come down?
