For the Sharp Elite the ANSI Contrast ratio is 15194:1, whereas the "Dynamic" Contrast is supposedly 8.000,000:1, which sounds like electronic babblespeak to me.
Can you put this is in context as far as CRT RPTV is concerned? It sounds like 100,000:1 for CRT RPTV is actual contrast ratio, versus apparent.
I agree with what the earlier poster said. The only thing that could get me to budge off of CRT is OLED, and an affordable truly big OLED panel is still some way off.
I've said this before, but CRT RPTV does not give me eyestrain, whereas LCD does.
