    Okay, could anyone quickly list positives/negatives of the multiple screen technologies out there? These are Rear Projection, Front Projection, Plasma, and LCD. I'm not too interested in future technologies as of yet (Oganic LCD and NanoTubes). What I'm getting at is what are the major limitations of each technology compared to it's advantages. I'll give this a start from what I know:

    Rear Projection:

    Positives:
    -fairly inexpensive,


    Negatives:
    - screen burn in (?)
    - bulky

    Front Projection:

    Positives:
    - No screen burn in (?)
    - excellent resolution

    Negatives:
    - expensive

    Plasma:

    Positives:


    Negatives:

    LCD

    Positives:
    -

    Negatives:
    - Dead pixels
    - expensive to repair (?)
    -

    I guess I do not know much :)

    Thanks,

    Rear projection and front projection can both use a variety of different projection technologies.

    CRT
    LCD
    DLP
    Lcos
    DILA
    SXRD

    CRT, as all crt technologies, can suffer from burn in, low light output, HUGE size and weight, technically a pain in the ass to deal with, but provides arguably the best picture, and the purest blacks.

    The rest are all digitals, are much smaller, easier to use, and vary in their pluses and minuses, and among units and design.

    Oh, and don't forget direct-view CRT.
