From the looks of this forum, seems I am a zero short of an adequate budget... Anyhow, my needs are as follows : 1-I watch about half brodcast, half DVD 2-I want to maximize screen size, but not at the expense of image quality (I have seen a Hitachi RPTV(50DX10?) with scan lines visible across the room...yuk....) 3-I want at least a 32 viwewing area 4-My viewing room will be very far from light controlled I was seriously looking at the toshiba 36 inch cinema series tube, until I read about the used fptvs and new RPTV Toshibas coming out. Now i'm just not sure. BTW, the budget is flexible, if there is a real good value a few hundred dollars from target. Thanks for your help.
