    I am considering buying a Sony RPTV, because of the size and low price. But i have been looking at LCD Projection tv's as well. I was wondering if the PQ is about the same when watching HDTV and dvd movies. Also one of my main concerns is issues with Burning In images and also delayed video (for when i play games). Do these issues occur with LCD Projection tv's?

    LCD and DLP do not suffer burn in. CRT RPTVs will provide a superior picture when correclty calibrated in the proper viewing environment, but will suffer burn in. IF you do a lot of gaming you'll be happier with a digital based TV, as well as if you have a bright viewing environment.

    I chose a Sony 50 inch LCD and I upgraded from a HDTV CRT, in no way the crt is better than the LCD in my opinion. Although it's not night and day the difference, but the images are a big improvement.

    Anothony, if you read what Chris was saying, he did qualify his opinion.

    Most people don't properly calibrate their sets, and don't have environments (low light, no crazy viewing angles) that lend nicely to CRT... but if you do, you will almost always get better results than from any LCD or DLP set.
