for the last year (since i moved out from the parents), i've been watching DVDs on my PC's 19" monitor with a hardware card (realmagic). now i've started shopping for rptvs, in the 42" HD range, both 4:3 and 16:9... and am really dissapointed in the picture qualities. it's either because: a) the hi-volume retailers i've been going to don't know how to display their products or b) i'm spoiled by the playback of dvds on PCs. regarding a): it seems the places never have a progressive scan player hooked to a tv, only a normal one. also, the broadcast signals been cut several times. their primary input is computer that outputs in HD, which is a very unrealistic good display. regarding b): even when the mid-range TVs are displayitng HD material, i find it's just not as good as my monitor. it's hard to explain but the solids are always "wavering" and the picture just isn't stable. perhaps it's only because my monitor is small and hides these imperfections. i dunno. is it just me?
