I am in the market for a new TV. I am looking in the $2000 to $3000 range. I have been looking at the wide screens between toshiba and mitsubishi. I have never been fond of projection tv's. I've been watching tv on a 27" Sony trinatron tv for the last 15 years. I definetly want bigger, but am not sure if I will be happy with a projection tv. It seems like you really have to be sitting directly in front of them to get a clear picture. Perhaps its just a matter of getting used to it where ever you sit in the room. The sweet spot is approx. 8' to the tv. The room I have designated for this is aprox. 11.5' x 15.5', so for family veiwing not everybody can sit directly in front of the screen. I have just invested in a quality home theater setup. I am also purchasing a Microsoft XBOX gaming console, which will support HDTV and Progressive Scan (480p and720p) for both gaming and DVD applications. Perhaps a tube tv would be better for this situation? Can anybody help me out. I appreciate any input.
