I follow home theater mags and boards as a hobby but the alphabet soup of display technologies has my head spinning (direct-view, RPTVs, plasma, CRT, DLP, LCD, D-ILA). Here's my criteria: - 16x9 screen ratio (for least wasted space when watching movies and future TV viewing) - Can reproduce true Black (dark gray won't do) - Immune to burn in (for extended video game use and extended use of black side matting for current standard ratio programing) - Preferably the lighter the better (tired of calling a friend just to move my WEGA around) ================================================== ===== My plan is pair this display with the soon to be released Samsung's DVD-HD931 player: "The best DVD player I saw at the show was Samsung's DVD-HD931. Okay, Samsung's product names are drab, but the picture quality is stunning. This $349 player, available in June, converts regular DVD discs to high-quality definition (720p, or 1,080 interlaced). It's also a DVD-audio player."
