I want a CRT system, and I love to tinker with stuff, so I don't mind a tough initial setup. I don't, however relish the thought of weekly or monthly re-convergance or tweaking, but I'd feel left out if I didn't have to at least turn something twice a year or so I will also consider any other options anyone might want to suggest like DiLA or LCD or DLP. Who knows...perhaps there's a great NEW LCD projector in the 3K price range that will surprise me....but I am verrry picky about my video and screen door effects and especially a dead pixle will ruin it for me. I want to project no more than 60 inches and most of the viewing would be of 16:9 material. I plan to setup a direct view TV for everyday watching and use the projector for movies, certain special TV days like premier night, and a few football games. So figure during football season, it will get about 5 hours a week of TV use in addition to 6 or so weekly for movies. The rest of the time should be just the six or so hours (two or three movies a weekend). Thanks for any suggestions!
