    None of the above.

    I'd certainly have a front projector, plus a very basic and small widescreen TV. Projector for films, TV for current affairs, soaps, whatever.

    And the projector - well I'm a committed VW10HT user and, having seen a number of state-of-the-art setups at "the event" I wouldn't change this view (well, actually, if I was buying now, I'd be checking out the VW11).

    I still LIKE the picture produced by LCD devices more than that produced by others. That's my choice, and I don't expect it necessarily to be yours. Every technology has some shortcoming (yes - refurbished CRT FPs included), and your preference is determined by your own tolerance for whatever these shortcomings are. All I would say is, don't discount any technology on the basis of others' views until you have seen them and made up your own mind. If you have already done exactly this, then fine. If not, then use others' views to establish what to look for in each technology, and then go and look for it to see whether you can live with it. Then choose.
