Anyway--this 831 "screen" --If it makes it look more like plasma does that mean it will look like a plasma in the daytime in a brightish room ? I dont know about you guys but to me plasma is unwatchable in the day due to screen glare. Is the new 831 series screen supposed to be glare free ?
Actually, i was originally on the plasma wagon but decided to incorporate my PC into a home theater so i decided against the plasma because i didn't want the TV to dictate what i could or could not do.
I hate LCD so i decided on a 1080p RP display to get the full PC capabilities. The no brainer was the A2000. However, i've been able to see some A2000's in the stores and although they look incredible on the hawaii loop it loses a lot of pop when you go down in resolution. It's still on my radar and if i decide not to get the A2000 it will only be the 831 series with the new screen.
This screen is not glass, so the glare should be no where near a plasma. In reality, my setup is fine for plasma, that had nothing to do with my decision.
If you read "parasite's" posts he states that the high contrast screen virtually eliminates the SSE but also reflects the glare. So, what really intrigues me is the possibilty of getting a 1080p set with DVI, an SXRD like Iris, no IR or burn in so i can remain a news junkie. and (hopefully) a screen that eliminates the SSE, which to me eliminates the "projected" look and becomes more of a 3D plasma look with no SSE and SDE. Basically, if the screen does what Parasite says it does the fat lady has sung. DLP was never a consideration until the new Mitsu's came along.
