Ok comparing the HS10 to my older CRT unit, it simply isn't up to the Sony VPH-1251 in terms of black levels, in fact it was bugging me at one stage. I put the cinema filter on and at first every thing seemed blue? I tweaked the settings with video essentials and finally got a nice picture, again black levels not so black, but acceptable. Screen door isn't a big issue, I can see it from about 1.5 screen width but then its so small its a bit like seeing scan lines on the CRT unit sometimes. At about 1.8 screen width where I sit its not a problem at all and I cant see it. I am watching PAL material and for PANS etc I cant fault it, I watched most of Apocalypse now and half of the fifth element last night, WOW. It is certainly allot crisper than the CRT, how ever the fan noise is a bit higher than I expected! I also think the memory stick function ROCKS, images come up so clear!
