    This thread - http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=215453 - in the Hi-Def forum says that RPTVs often use lenticular lensing to make the picture brighter when viewed straight on, at the expense of dimmer images off-axis. So, my question. Which of the current crop of RPTVs use lenticular lensing. I'm thinking of the latest Toshibas, Samsungs, Sagems, Thomsons.

    I know my old Tosh 46WH08 had one, but I dont think any modern dlp does as they are all uniformly bright, or if they have then the optical technolgy has improved, I would not worry about it

    All RPTV's suffer from the same issues.. i.e. there off-axis performance is much worse then on-axis..

    The only technologies that are in the mainstream that don't suffer are CRT and PLASMA...

    Of course there are differences in Lens design, so some are better in the Horizontal, some better in the Vertical plane.. I think most people would prefer something with a wider Horizontal viewing angle, since this allows more viewable seating positions in the room..

    my point is, they are all the same, so there is no point in worring about it
