    Yes, some models have "anti-reflection" screens. Some people like them, others feel they blur the image.

    You have to decide for yourself if you want this or not.

    Samsung has not had a good reputation until the last year or so. Mitsubishi is one of the better brands, but the Mitsubishi televisions will NOT accept 720p from say a video game or decoder box.

    I'd go with the Mitsubishi unless the 720p issue is a problem for you.

    Thanks, i think Mitsubishi would be a cool option, by the way do you know how much are the cost for the lamps in both cases and how many hours of life have?

    I believe these are CRT based televisions. They have tubes/guns and not lamps like a DLP unit. The cost of replacing these is almost as much as buying a new television.

    I was told the expected life of a typical RPTV is around 5000 hours.

    The DLP televisions are different. They have a single high-intensity bulb that can be replaced for about $250 after 4000-6000 hours. None of the models you listed are DLP's.
