I am pretty sure that I am going to get a crt rear projection TV. I was just looking for some opinions. From what I can see, the biggest disadvantage of a crt rear projection is that it is big and heavy. Well, I have a 16 foot deep living room that alread has about 20 inches taken up by an existing tube TV and an entertainment center. That leaves me with a working space of 14 feet 4 inches. Plenty of room for my family. I also plan on building in the RPTV and have shelves on the side for my HT gear. Is there really a point for me to look at thinner TVs? Other than the wow factor, I can't think of any.
