    Just a question regarding wide screen tv's coz i'm planning to buy a 65" hdtv and i'm confused right now with what I'm going to choose. My brother bought a 55" Mitsubishi hdtv and it looks great but somehow i not impressed with the projection its giving out...its too dark even at straight on viewing. Does it need some optimizing? Comparing the 2 technology which one is most worth it?

    Your brother's Mitsu is probably not calibrated properly. (Or the room lighting may have been too bright. Or both.) But remember that CRT-based RPTVs won't put out the light a direct-view set will, and their field of view is more limited.

    DLP rear projectors might offer better light output and contrast ratio, but they still don't yield deep, rich blacks, which is something CRTs excel at.

    DLP may very well catch up with CRT some day soon, but, for now, tried-and-true cathode tubes are king.
