I hate to demote Optima HD80, but I have to say single panel DLP is inferior to all other techs let alone a pristine film print and/or a high end CRT. If you have not owned a well up CRT (8"LC and 9") it would be unwise to dispute its performance as I said before.
There are hi end CRT's, hi end DLP's and Lcos which are far superior to 1ch dlp units.
Now if we are talking about budget 1080 units, HD80 is indeed in the running and that is what you should concentrate on but please do not think with a few thousand $ you will have got a reference system. That would be a comedy.
It is all about quality. That is the picture.
