After seeing these setup at friends I decided it was time to upgrade the old 480i CRT. Now that I have it setup, yes I do enjoy the added resolution (720p native) but I just can't get over the missing blacks. Everything is good until a dark scene comes out, then it is just agony watching the gray picture surrounded by black from the rest of the room. I guess LCD just isn't suited for a room with no ambient light. I might very well go back to the CRT which has less resolution, not progressive but projects much bigger picture from the distance. This will most likely end up in the bedroom and the CRT will stay in the HT until I can afford Sony's Ruby or similar, or find mint 9" CRT.
