Okay, okay, calm down, Nicolas, just breathe slowly and tell them all what the problem is.... (Oh, before I start: this may be the wrong forum for this post; if so then perhaps a passing moderator could move and/or nuke it). Right. I'm looking for a display device with the following criteria: Budget somewhere around the £4K mark. (A little less would be good). Ideally I'd like it to be capable of displaying 1080i at full resolution (1920x180) - but this doesn't seem to be possible until the price hits £10K+ (with a few exceptions - maybe there are some more I've missed). I've decided that I don't want a front-projector. This was a really tough decision, but, when it comes down to it, it's going to have to work with the curtains open and/or the lights on, so however fabulous the DLP and DILA projectors may be getting these days, they won't do. I want, at least sometimes, to be able to use it as a PC monitor. This (I think) means that it's got to have square pixels, otherwise it will mess up the aspect ratio. (Am I right about that?) Eventually I'll be looking to buy a separate scaler for it (iscan HD+ perhaps) or go down the the HCPC route (possibly with SDI mods in either case). So the long-term goal is to have the best possible image after scaling - but in the mean time it must do a reasonable job of displaying 576p/50Hz (from an Arcam DV27) and 576i/50Hz (from a Sky+ box). I want it to be compatible with Sky HD. I want it to be HDCP/HDMI-capable. I want it to stand a reasonably good chance of being able to handle a BluRay or HD-DVD player a couple of years from now. It should still be working well after 20,000 hours of use. (I watch a hell of a lot of TV!) Sound/audio capabilities are irrelevant. I care a great deal about the picture, but not about any other aspect of its appearance. Mustn't be too noisy (i.e. buzz, hum, fan noise). It shouldn't suffer from screen-burn as a result of nearly everything I watch on Sky having subtitles. (I'm partially deaf and I really need them). It needs to be able to display a non-anamorphic TV signal quite a lot of the time without stretching the image, and without getting screen-burn at the sides of the picture while doing it. My first thought was a 50" plasma, maybe something like a Panasonic 50-PHD7BS from avsales - but I'm anxious about Sky HD compatibility, and screen-burn issues. The 45" Sharp Aquos Titanium looks rather nice - 1080p and seems to support virtually all signal formats - but the cheapest I can find it is £4705 (from this place) and that's a bit more than I can afford ; I'm a bit anxious about the picture quality with a non-scaled source; I don't really want to pay that much for its sound system, which I won't use; and I'm also worried about the lifespan of the backlight. Some of the DLP rear-projection TVs that are due to launch in america soon sound like they might be a good option (1080p!) but God only knows when we'll see them in the U.K. Any other suggestions?
