As the subject line says, suppose I want a genuinely high-definition display, but a 50" plasma screen is a little too expensive: what are the options? Of course there are various devices that can accept an HD input signal. But that doesn't mean they're capable of actually displaying an HD picture! What's needed is a device capable of displaying 1920x1080 individually resolvable pixels. But I suspect that's not going to happen (or at least not for less money than a 50" plasma ). So then we're looking at a device capable of displaying 1280x720 individually resolvable pixels. There are certainly small PC monitors capable of this, but PC monitors that have a 16:9 aspect ratio are often annoyingly expensive, and the picture quality may not be all that good, especially for fast-moving video. (And in any case if I wanted to know about that I'd probably have to post this in a different group). The ability of Loewe TVs to display 1024x576 is interesting, but still falls short of 720p, and may be a bit flickery anyway. What about RPTV systems? Are there any nice RPTVs that display a true HD picture, look as good as a 50" plasma (albeit maybe with a slightly smaller screen) and cost a bit less? Or should I head off to one of the projector forums?
