OK, don't flame me. I've been a member of this forum for almost 3 years and I know how to use the search function. I've even checked the HTF basics primer. However, I cannot find an easy, convenient location to find the plusses and minuses of the various technologies available (projection, DLP, CRT, LCOS, Plasma, etc). I have nearly 11K invested in my home theater, but I watch movies on a $400 27" TV. I need to rectify this by the start of the NFL season. How will I use the TV? 60% DVD/30%TV/10% gaming. I doubt burn in will be an issue as I rarely play my X-Box more than an hour at a time. I'm looking for a display format that gets the best picture without a lot of tweeking. Down the road I will get it ISF calibrated, but probably not right away. My room is 23x21 and has very good light control (finished basement). I have thought about front projection, but from where I would have to mount the projector (11'), it seems the picture size will be little bigger than what I can get from a regular TV. Oh yeah, my budget is $3000-$3500 max. If you can link me to a FAQ or offer suggestions, that would be great. I realize there is a thread out there that is similar to this one, but I really want to educate myself along with narrowing my choices down, I don't just want a bunch of suggestions. Thanks guys (and gals!).
