i have an excellent projector (ToshMT8) so my movie needs are sorted out. however, for terrestrial TV viewing, esp of footie/motor-racing, i want to buy a large screen (the eyes are not what they used to be). Plasma: When i look at any plasma, from 2 times screen width, i cant stand the pixelisation/"screen-door" effect. in fact, i cant understnand how people can say that their cherished plasma is of good pic quality...if u watch from more than 2 times screen width (to lose the screen-door) then what's the point of a large screen? i also want to puke when i see people pay thousands and then watch a 4:3 pic at 16:9 to fill the whole of the screen (all the chicks look kinda fat and round)... Lcd: large lcd's are still rare but Sharp looks a bit artificial even if slightly better than plasma. The Korean brands look awful to me. i also heard that in fast movement the lcd gives nasty artefacts, is it true? if so, so long the footie... CRT so we come back to the old faithful...the pic can be fanatastic except that at large screens (>36in/80cm) there can be some geometry issue at the extremes of the screen but that is not so critical in case of footie. Also, since most of the footie is broadcast 4:3, the advantage of 36in widescreen over 29in std screen is 5cm/2in in height of the picture. Also heard that some TVs have 1/2 second processing time, so unsuitable for PS/X-box, is it true? Bottom line: 1. wud any of u with experience in three techs agree with the above and particularly, with the fact that CRT is still visibly better than plasma and lcd? if so, why buy plasma/lcd? 2. is it worth waiting for a plasma/lcd that will come close to CRT? 3. if CRT, which 36in is a good value? most recent design? is there/will there be an HDMI/DVI CRT?
