As I do my Sunday DVD shopping, I often stop by the TV area at my local CC or BB to look at the sets. This week at my CC they set up a DLP and LCD side by side, both were around 60". Since these technologies are the future of video, I often try to figure out what I might buy if the funds were available. But at this point, I'm not really thrilled with what I see. It's not the reported poor blacks of LCD or the rainbow effect of DLP (I've seen neither really), it's the 'glitter grain' effect. What I'm seeing is lots of shinny grain, even in Finding Nemo which looks flawless on my CRT. I know both these technologies are based on pixels, instead of scanlines. Seems like the fully digital path is harsher and less forgiving. Starting to wonder if this isn't similar to those who preferred analog recordings (LPs) to CDs. I keep drifting back to the Sony 910, which is fairly small but always seems to look so natural and sharp. Maybe the CRT isn't dead yet. I should probably stop by a highend shop and see these new sets in their best light. For some reason, BB and CC always seem to be piping some questionable signals to their larger sets.
