NO burn in--OAR means OAR and I watch a lot of old films--I will NOT stretch the image. NO motion blurring (or as little as possible--so far, LCD, to my eyes, seems to suffer the most from this problem, but I've not looked at the MOST expensive sets). DEEP BLACKS and GOOD SHADOW DETAIL--a lot of the classic films I watch are not only 4:3 but black&white 5000$CDN or less REASONABLE Standard Definition playback--I understand SD looks relatively poor than HD on HDTVs, but some must be better than others in that regard--there's not enough HD programming in my neck of the woods for me to forgo SD channels. 45-55 inches I recently helped a friend shop for a TV and HT setup. He went with a DLP RP (he liked it a lot) and I was mainly along for the audio portion of his rig (audio is a far more important element for me and it is where my expertise (relative to his) lies). I was planning to wait another couple of years, but I do admit the big screen "bug" bit me while I was shopping with him. So, does the TV I want exist? (I know there is no perfect TV, but I would like to do reasonably well with one).
