pouring in. Viewing angle is a non-issue for most of us. Trying to enjoy viewing from 45 degrees off center or more is not the height of enjoyment regradless of which technology. Four year old Sammy can't compete with some others for really deep blacks. Other than that sunshine on the screen example, colors are fine by me. My set is on around 12 hours a day, sort of as an alternative to deadening silence. Lamp is visably not a bright as new. Still, I'm not moved to replace it yet, at $180 cost.
Being used to CRTs most of my life, the slim cabinets are not any obstacle for me. Thosed enamored by relatively great thinness of four inches or so, may be annoyed by the 16 inches that nonetheless fits decently on any normal table. Custom wall mount is a beautiful concept when applicable.
A problems with rear projectors is that they are not great in daylight, Is this TV very bright and clear in daylight?
Also what is the viwing angle of this tv?
Does it produce very deep blacks, bright whites?
How many years (with about six hours a day) would the lamp last? and how much would a lamp cost by then?
How well does analog look on it (if you can compare to others at the same size please do)?
Is the Depth of the TV slim or to big to big for a average sized family room?
Thank you for you personal opinions and expierences with these TV
