    Considering a rptv soon but my main concern is about the light levels needed to have a reasonable picture. Can a decent picture still be had with your lights on eg background veiwing (or coronation street for her!). Thanks for any pointers or tips.:confused:

    Yes,definitely,as long as you don't have broad daylight right in line with the screen,but that will apply to any current viewing system(plasma,CRT,projector).

    Ours has caused no viewing problems with normal light levels in the lounge,certainly not by comparison with the previous standard CRT.

    No problems with RP and light levels, this is compared to a 36 inch direct view Philips the Sony RPTV is much better in this respect

    Because the screen is very flat I find it doesn't cop the light much. The screen itself is not too reflective either which is nice. Admittedly the contrast isn't quite so good with higher light levels but it's nowhere near as bad as I was led to believe.

    One of the things that decided me on a Toshiba RPTV as opposed to a Sony was the non-reflective screen,which is definitely easier to see in higher ambient light,especially directly at the screen.

    Picture quality is very subjective,I know,but I certainly found the Toshiba to be the best as far as I was concerned....no regrets so far!

    I second the Tosh option. No reflections at all in the matt screen and it looks a more 'cinematic' too.
