I seem to rely on the opinions of other "fanatics" lately, using the forum as a better and more reliable reference than some clueless salesperson. I am looking into a 60"+ RPTV. The problem is, the sets around me (on sales floors) are noticably uncalibrated and seem to be recieving varying levels of signal quality. Therefore, a side by side evaluation doesn't seem to make much sense. I had narrowed my choice down to the Hitachi 65" swx CRT based RPTV. Now, DLP technology and packaging has caught my eye/interest. Samsung has one that is 61". Does anyone have an opinion on the image quality of these two sets/technologies? How well is DLP in dark movie scenes? I enjoy DVD movies and am on the edge of my seat (for a couple of years yet I know) for HD DVDs. When I get my new set I will quickly get a HD Sat receiver as well.
