Not really thaT much actually. Have you seen some of the DLPs' in action??? Why are so many people obsessed with black levels??? There is much, much more to a TV than just that. The black levels in the Samsung SP50/SP46 and Sony 50A12 are more than good. You can get an old style projector TV that is HD Ready AND CRT. I think Currys sell a 44" Samsung one for £799. Be careful though, it looks hidious!
