    FP is not an option for me. As far as RP goes I would like to find something better than Samsung or Sony. Is there some killer DLP or LCD in the $10,000 US range? Plasma is out because of burn-in. Thanks Henry

    The 70" sony is pretty sweat. It retails for $7k. Can get it for about $6400. You should check it out before you spend more then that on a different tv.

    Well if your set is properly calibrated then you won't have to worry about burn in whatsoever. You've probably got that mind set because of all the rediculous paranoia in these boards. Bottom line is if you take care of it and calibrate it there will be no worries.

    You might check into the new JVC DILA rear projection sets. They have a 52" and 61" set, which tend to run about the same price as the Samsung DLP's. It's getting fairly positive remarks over at avsforum.com also. Check out this thread for some first impressions: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...hreadid=423390

    Optoma has a DLP based 65" RPTV that looks great! Has won a couple of "Best picture" awards.

    This is a misconception, and cannot let it slide by. Sorry.
    The reality is that "calibration" entails, among other things, in bringing the video level or "contrast" to a lower level than the factory setting which is usually maximum.

    This makes burn-in less likely, but does NOT eliminate it. The issue still remains that plasmas are highly susceptible to burn in. More so than any other display. With proper precautions and care it does not need to occur. But to say that there will be no worries is not prudent. I'll leave the issue of "ridiculous paranoia" for someone else to address.

    Another RPTV to check out is the new Infocus Screenplay 61. It is only about 6.5 inches thick with the new HD2+ DLP chipset, built in HiDef tuners, etc. It will retail around $9,999 but will go for a lot less street.
