Today I went to my local Comet and local Currys. I was going to purchase a 32" LCD but would like something bigger. Had thought about a Plasma but unsure regarding ScreenBurn. Anyway after looking on this site I ready about Rear Projection I started to think that this was for me. BUT after today I'm back to square one. I know the feeds are crap in store but WHY are DLPs so dark. Every single one in both shops were so dark. Samsungs Sagems all of them! Now I was standing so I crouched down and it improved slightly but does this mean that at home I would need to be facing the screen dead centre and at eye level. If I was stood up or sat at the side is this what I'd encounter? I have to say that I was really disappointed. I had a look at the LCDs which had mixed results and some Plasmas which again had mixed results but these were so bright and colourful and overall in store these had the better pictures. Your thoughts appreciated.
