Went out to audition the hs20 today and within 30 seconds i knew i was going to buy. The picture was exellent with no complaints in any of the ussual areas, that are constantly discussed on these forums. Even the standard tv signal wasnt bad at all , alot better than i expected . Of course high def and dvd were spectacular. When compared to a $10,000 sharp dlp i felt the picture was comprable if not better.Both machines were set up properly by a knowledgable person . Black levels were very acceptable to my eyes,colors were brilliant and picture clarity was exellent. At this point i will say that i am going to stop reading propaganda , as i have made up my own mind in exactly what i like. And it was in stock so i bought it and brought it home .
