Robert, I followed your link into the crt forum. The crt forum

reminds of the times when I would dodge Hari Krishnas at

the airport.

I assume the dlp is the first one and crt is the second one. To use a phrase often used in this forum the first blows the second one out of the water. Thanks Greg

Here's what one forum member's Marquee 8500 picture looks with the same Screenplay 5700 screenshot below it for comparison.


p.s. when you see two images together like this it becomes more evident that both color saturation and grayscale are in need of tweaking with both. But I think it still conveys some differences. And yes, I agree. I think I still prefer the DLP picture. But I would like to see gamma adjusted so that a little more detail is visible to the left in the DLP image.

These comparisons don't seem to indicate that CRT is a better picture than DLP. That is rather inconsistant with what I read in the CRT forum. Am I overlooking something?

In response to your question, Deane, I think pinkerton said it best earlier in this thread.

I think I'm beginning to catch on.


My Telex P1400 is still chugging along giving me an excellent picture (within the limits of it;s specs and 5 year old technology), but blu-ray is coming and I'm trying to keep up with which type projector will be best when I upgrade in a couple of years. It seems that CRT will be pretty much over with by then, replaced with simpler. easier to deal with technologies.


I'm not trying to start an arguement with CRT fans, just trying to determine what will fit me best a couple of years down the road.

Deane Johnson,


i used to own a Telex P1400. Have you seen any of the newer projectors. You can get MUCH better for not much moola.

I have an IF 7200. I've owned both a Zenith and a Harmon CRT projector. The reason I like my digital projector better is:


1. It's 90 Lbs lighter.

2. It has a sharper picture.

3. It accepts DVI.

4. The set-up is unfinitely easier.

5. After a few movies, I don't notice convergence drifting.

6. If it needs service, I don't have to ship it via a Mac truck.

7. Since all I have in my home theater is digital stuff, black levels

look fine because I have no other reference.


I donated my former CRTs to my brother-in-laws church. My after-life is now assured.

I think most projectors today will run circles around the P1400. An upgrade is in order, but I've been thinking of holding off until blue-ray DVDs are about to hit the market, then make a big jump all at once. Shoud be about two years.


What would you recommend if I were moving on it today, since you know the P1400 and how it performs?

Timblemont,


If God starts posting questions in the CRT section concerning convergence and geomentry re: Zenith and Harmon CRT projectors, your afterlife may be assured, but not in the way you would like!


Cheers,

Deane,


If you have the discipline to only upgrade once at the dawning

of HD-DVD then be advised that I'm turning a power of

attorney over to you to manage my stock portfolio.


However, if I were you and I lived in the mid-west as you do,

I would consider taking a road trip to CEDIA. It's a trade show

in Indiana that happens every fall. You can in one day see

everything to make an educated decision. There's plenty of

time though, you needn't attend next year or even the one

after.


After saying all of that, due to my coarse, insensitive, peasent-like

eyesight I am currently riding shotgun on the Robert Wood

driven DLP bandwagon. Any brand will do as long as the optics

fit your room.


If I'm allowed one editorial comment: home theater dealerships

are to North America as the opium den once was to China.

Please do try to avoid them.

What's wrong with hare krishnas? I'm sorry for going off-topic, but that's a disparaging remark against a religious group of people. I'm just curious as to why you feel they are a group that needs to be avoided at all costs?

Allow me. What he was alluding to is the single-minded zeal and dedication the krishnas embody, unmindful of the beliefs of all others.

Not altogether unlike those who worship to the cathode ray tube.

Well said Robert,

You must speak as someone with experience.

You have, what, 20 CRT's laying around?

:D

It's my big ol mean wifes discipline more than mine. But she does give me an unlimited budget for DVDs.
