Yes, I have two of them. HDTV from OTA or RCA DTC-100 is outstanding. So is prog DVD. They are essentialy the Sony 400q LCD proj put into an RPTV. Sony orig. released it as a B&PG product at $15k! Sales were poor because of a lack of market for 16:9 for B&PG customers. The price went from $15k, to $12.5k, to $10k, to $7.5k, to $5k, and then discontinued it. Get the service manual from Sony! There is an excellent forum on this proj. in the DVD Big Picture site, with much useful info. Also, do a google search for the model number for lots of useful sites. Someday I'll replace one or both of them w/plasma.
Although this monitor's native LCD panel resolution's is 480p, the internal scaler interpolates the pixels very nicely; giving a very desirable antialiasing effect. HDTV at 720p most definitely looks better than 480p on this monitor. I also run DVD's, 3D games, and desktop at 1360x768. It's a great monitor.
I've had the KL-W9000 for a couple of years and love it. I have one bit of advice and many questions.
I'll start with the advice. You may want to consider buying a replacement bulb. Since this monitor was discontinued about 2.5 years ago, you may not be able to easily get a replacement when/if you need to a few years down the road. I think they cost a few hundred dollars, which is a little painful.
I want to get a progressive scan DVD player, but the 9000 only has RGB input. Should I forget the DVD and get an iScan? Will I really notice a difference in picture quality?
I also wonder about OTA HD broadcasts. Is the RCA DTC-100 my only/best choice? I've stayed away from the DTC-100 because I thougth people were having problems hooking them to the KL-W9000.
