I have been looking around for a while (mostly at front projection) and have come to the conclusion that RPTV was a more economically sound decision (cable costs, screen, mountin cost, yearly $500 bulb cost etc...). I have my eye on a Mits ws55511 for $2300. I think it is a pretty good price and I want to act before last years models go away but I have a concern about DVI. Obviously I am not the only one with this concern since they added it to this years model. Should I avoid this model simply because of this??? Is HDCP really going to become reality or will it just affect DVD's??? I could get the new 55413 (w/dvi-hdcp)for the same price but missing the OTA tuner (big deal for me) and the sales guy claims the 511 has better optics. or I could pickup a Sony KP57WS510 w/dvi for closer to $2000 and spend the extra on a set top. How does the sony compare to the Mits?????

Huh? (with respect to the above)


I believe DVI is much more important for fixed-pixel displays; CRTs are much more forgiving. It's not clear what will happen with the standards, but it's doubtful that movie studios/standards bodies will be alienating pre-DVI HDTV owners anytime soon - certainly not before the end of that TV's lifetime.

The cable costs, mounting costs,screen costs, bulb expense was referring to cost considerations when deciding between Front Projection and Rear Projection. Basically add at least $1000 to the cost of a projector to get up and running. With RPTV you pretty much plug in and enjoy!!
