I'm looking to make the jump to HTPC (primarily for large screen gaming/surfing) and am curious about your opinions on the following:
If you had $5K to spend on a large HTTP display, which one would you pick to provide the sharpest PC desktop image possible? Meaning which in your experience between plasma, lcd projection, direct view, dlp rptv, or another option, gave you the most crisp text in MS Word, or Internet Explorer etc. I also intend to do a large amount of Xbox gaming on the display.
I ask because I've experimented with CRT based RPTVs using DVI connections to my PC as well as the HD pack to my Xbox, and the screen/text is fuzzy and imprecise versus a standard 21" PC monitor at the same resolutions (obviously). I know I can't get the exact precision of a normal PC monitor, but can I get close?
So far my leading candidate is the new Sony Grand Wega XBR line (LCD RPTV) in a 50" size. Or perhaps the massive 40XBR800 direct view monster. I'm somewhat leary of plasma because of the burn in concerns, but is there something better out there I'm missing?
Thanks for the help!
