Yeah, ever since people went gaga for "flat" screens, they overlook DLP's advantages, such as lower cost per square inch, lower electricity consumption, better black levels, and faster response time, LCDs still suffer from motion blur, not to mention the screen door effect, I really can't stand that. Also, according to my research, LCDs pictures turn green or yellow as they age, and plasmas just fade away, while my DLP gets rejuvenated with a new bulb ($99) every three or four years.
Everyone I know who has a flat screen has it sitting on a stand or table that is at least 20 inches deep, so the "flatness" of the TV is of no value anyway, IMHO.
My Mits is calibrated, and it's an amazing experience. Not to mention everyone else is just now catching up on it's 3D capability.
The only thing I would do differently, is buy the 82", as you soon find that bigger is
better in HDTV.
