So what fixed panels have you had that toped those previously owned CRT's in comparision?
I didn't say I owned them all, but the advantage when working with these things is that I can get my hands on alot without having to own them. In some cases, I don't own projectors but have to work with them or design mods. I think there is no point in constantly switching installed machines, if there isn't much of an improvement.
As far as digitals go and as previously stated, the first digital I could live with was the Sony Qualia 004. This did everything for me I was looking for and did everything better than the CRTs I've owned and worked with.
Other projectors include pretty much the entire Sim2 line, while for me personally RBE is an issue, for others it may not be an issue at all. JVC HD2K, RS1, RS2, HD100, the Meridian version, some of the Runco line, all Marantz 1080p (especially the 11S1 gives me a major RBE headache, though), PD Action Model Three, M25, DP Titan series, Sony VW50, VW100, VW60, VW200 to name a few.
I've worked with other projectors and projector arrays for medical imaging, research, 3D-projection, presentation and augmented reality with all kind of resolutions (2k, 4k, 8k, 12k and above) and sources, but I'll leave those out of the discussion here, since they're not really consumer units and in some cases only proof-of-concept installations or prototypes.
However, I think we're getting too much off topic again, the OP asked for recommendations and it looks like we're getting into another CRT vs digital war since some hardcore CRT owners come into the digital forum and try to convince everyone that CRT is still king. Sorta like the the HD DVD and BD fanboys going over to the "other" forum and stirring up trouble.
If you have any more specific questions on CRT vs digital, drop me a PM. I'll be happy to answer questions, but lets not mess up this thread anymore than it already is or have it even closed.
