RPTVs in general (CRT, DLP, LCoS etc.), Plasma, Projection, Direct View. A budget is not really a problem, but obviously I'd like as low as possible. But not excessive. Lets say a 6500 dollar cap. But that is flexible... just a reference what I'd like to stay under. Now, I have taken a real interest to the Samsung 61" RPTV DLP TV. Or a permutation thereof (coming out in may or june?). A link can be found here. It is a nice set from what I can see... opinions? My general reservations and concerns I have heard about various technologies are; DLP -"Rainbow Effect" -Light Blacks Plasma -Burn-In -Contrast and color definition CRT/Conventional -outdated tech -definition and clarity may be inferior Front Projection -blub life LCoS -Inputs -Size -Future upgrades These are just samplings of some of the thoughts through my mind. Now the TV I really lust for, is the Toshiba LCoS. This streets for around 6500... although I would like bigger than 57". Does Toshiba plan to introduce a larger version, or any other company with a similar technology? Either that, or a Mitsu 73" beast, although it is CRT. Besides the opinions on the specific TVs, I am basically asking for thoughts on all the technolgies and possibly, for my needs (described below), a ranking of all the technologies. I need something that is halfway practical. I'd like to watch TV on it, high def content mostly. I do watch a substantial amount of the news (DAMN THAT CNN LOGO!!), so I guess burn in is a concern? I also want something with longevity. That's where the FP fails, I have heard the bulbs are gone after a couple of hours and can cost a hundred bucks a replacement. In addition, I want the highest fidelity possible. Thank you for your help, and I look foward to posting here in the future!
