I'm a crt user have been for many years now, my primary unit is a Ehome 8111 with about 510hrs total time it was a demo unit I picked-up cheep. Well the quest is this I also have a mitz rptv hd 65" which is what my kids use for regular viewing also a crt. I freak when I see a still image of any kind, and keep in mind for my ehome the room has to be fairly dark. My kids love waching the big screen but I'm afraid of neglect and damage. Like most pic quality is of the up-most, but also need some kind of room lights for the kiddos. I just bought a sharp xg-p10xu bright oh my God bright, but blacks look grey and to me pixels are still noticeable, not as bad as some I seen since this is a 1024x768 native panels with an addressable 1600x1200 max resolution. Brightness of 3000 ansi lumes, fully automated with all the bells and whistles. I got lucky on this unit also with practacly a new buld only 331hrs of use. Considering the jvc G1000, from what I've been reading pic is as close to crt as they come but what about brightness and blacks? Can this unit be watched with some lights on? If so I like to trade in the sharp for a used g1000, or sell this unit to purchase a G1000. Can anyone comment? Or better yet any screen shots of a G1000 in action?
