Some background. I'm trying to decide on a new RPTV. I have a 65" Mits CRT now that I love. It won't fit down the stairs though, and I really don't want to take it apart. Hence, I'm looking for a new one for downstairs. I watch a lot of scifi and action, so I'm pretty sure DLP (over plasma or lcd). I'm going micro due to space needed to get it downstairs. I really like the 65", so I'm trying to stick with it, and am looking at the 62" Mits or 61" JVC. I like the Sammy picture, but nothing other than the problemed 63 series in that size. That said: I've been to Ultimate Electronics and BB. Both times, the Mits DLP look dark. The colors were muted and the image much "softer" than the Sammy DLP or JVC DILA. We took the cover off at UE and it improved somewhat. Are the Mits DLPs darker? Or was this a case of uncalibrated sets? Thanks!
