I just spent the last few days checking out every TV I could find.

Since I want at least a 50" screen, I think it's got to be either

plasma or RPTV.


Thus far I've been pretty disappointed in what I've seen in

the stores I found (mostly large chains because they have

good selections).


About 80% of the rptvs were clearly misaligned between the

three colors. You could see a red or green or blue line on one

side of edges, this was especially noticable on white text,

something I waited to see when looking at each TV.


Is this always correctable with good setup? Is this something

which you as the owner can safely do or do you have to keep

getting an engineer out to do it the way he or she thinks looks

right? I wondered looking at these things if there are such things

as really good RPTVs, I didn't see one where the picture was

anywhere near as good as CRT direct or plasma. These were

mostly HDTVs where you would think that convergence would

be very important.

Roland,


All RPTV's can be adjusted, and unless you see them displayed at high end stores that give a damn, they almost always look terrible in the showroom. More often than not, they can bed made to look MUCH better just by properly using the adjustemnts in the user menu.

A RPTV has a CRT projector inside of it!


ALL CRT PJ's need to be properly set up and aligned to make them look like there supposed to. Like a FPTV(CRT projector) you will need to do an occasional touch up in convergance to keep them looking good:)
