John P. mentioned that he has a 48" rear pro monitor, aka: big tv. I've always felt those were very fuzzy images. Big: sure. But fuzzy. I have a 30" GE. I would think a low cost data projector would give a better image on a white wall than the rear pros. Does their projector project if removed from the unit? Are they making 5' x 4' movie screens for home use?

The decision maker on buying that 48-inch rear screen Sony set was my wife. She has a seizure disorder, and found that our neighbor's similar rear screen set bothered her the least. I still favor a direct-view CRT display as offering the best quality when all factors are considered (good luminance, good contrast ratio, color reproduction, sharpness, lack of directionality, cost).

By itself, rear-screen sets can look okay, but they just don't measure up to a direct view CRT for image quality.

I have not been totally impressed with plasma or large screen LCD displays yet. IMHO, when larger monitors use Kodak OLED technology, there will be a new benchmark:

Still not doing HD. Broadcasts just getting started in Rochester, I don't have satellite, and cable offerings are meager. Expect to go HD in a year or two, as displays improve and come down in price.

I mentioned in another post that my wife starts to feel queasy when we attend our church and they turn on the ceiling fans which are positioned right under the spotlights that illuminate the seating area. The flicker is annoying to me, but actually sickens her.
