dvd's are 720x480 and they're anamorphic (most of them) which means they look much better than standard SD.

Anyway, go with rear projection. I've got a JVC LCoS 52" RPTV and it freaking owns. Either get like that Sony 60A2000 or you may want to consider the JVC 61FN97, it's like $2500 nowadays and it's pretty kick ass.

Are you referring to old tubes? I have a CRT HDTV upstairs (Sony 36" WEGA) and I have LCD monitor and all that and I don't notice any flicker on my TV or whatever you're talking about. Maybe on a PC monitor with 60Hz, but not on a TV.

Oh well, looks like I won't have a new set by the Superbowl (my original idea). I couldn't decide on what to get although I guess I'll go with a projection set.

Are projection TVs loud (e.g. fan noise or some other sort of noise)? My current LCD monitor (Westy 37") makes a really annoying buzzing noise that I've noticed most other LCDs/Plasmas don't make. I think I read that it's b/c it's using a cheap power supply or something. Anyway, in the stores I haven't really noticed any noises with the projection TVs but since the stores are so noisy to begin with, it could just be masked.

I only hear mine when I turn it off. The fan stays on a minute or so to cool the lamp.

Dont forget, replacing a 400 dollar bulb once every year or 2, and crappy viewing angles. IMHO, thats enough of a reason to go LCD.

Except you have to worry about crappy SDTV picture, possibility of dead pixels and ghosting like no one's business.

My 3 year warranty where I bought mine from includes bulb replacement. And viewing angles are definetely not bad at all. LCoS has improved much over the old CRT projection sets. I have had no issues so far with viewing angles. If you decide to sit at a huge angle to the TV, that's your own problem.

And also there's much more at play here. Let's see, get a 55-60" 1080p set and have amazing movie/game/so on experience, or get a measly 37" set? It makes a huge difference. Hell I find that a 61" set makes quite a big difference compared to my 52" set, and going from my CRT HDTV 36" set (which is by the way very good at everything including SD) to my 52" set is a huge difference as well. It's a whole new experience.

My warranty covers the bulb in my DLP set also and the viewing angle is just fine.
OWA the fan noise is not even noticable until you shut down the set and then it's a soft fan noise that lasts for about a minute like evilchris said.

Thanks for the info on the noise guys. That doesn't sound bad at all.

Apparently you are clueless as to modern RPTV's. My 70" Sony XBR2 SXRD has a 165 degree viewing angle, a $200 bulb that will last 2 years, and VASTLY SUPERIOR PQ to any LCD. Not to mention it came with a spare bulb in the box. IMHO, thats enough of a reason to go RPTV.

Additionally, the ONLY WEARABLE PART in an LCoS set is the bulb. Easily changeable. LCD's are throw away items when they wear out.
