Hey guys. I am really naive about RPTV's. I have been dead set against them all this time because I hate the picture on them. I have been planning this whole time that when I got my new TV (taxes, hopefully) I would get the best Sony Vega 36" or 40" direct view. The other day I actaully was able to see a Plasma screen up close. I never look at the TV's anymore. But the detail and the screen being crystal clear from every angle and even when I put my face right up to the thing, just blew me away. So, then I do some research and find out about these new DLP chip TV's. I hear the picture is almost if not perfectly on par with a Plasma screen. Well, if that is true, this is a very good thing. However, I hear that Plasma screen also can get bad burn in. So, do these DLP tv's have the exact same chance of burn in as any other RPTV? And, as far as viewing off center, as they clear as a bell like the Plasma's? Or still like regular RPTV's? The burn in thing really really bother's me, almost as bad as the off-center viewing problems. So, I'd like some input and opinions from people that have them, or have seen them in stores. Otherwise, I will just stick to my original plan of the Sony Vega.
