    I will soon be in the market for either of the above tv's, which one has the best picture and is most reliable?

    I could go for a 36" widescreen or 42/44" rear projection, any advice.

    Cheers,

    BK

    Location: SX, unfortunately

    Most rear projection screns I've seen have had a terrible viewing angle. But I have heard they have improved recently. Be careful as rear projection may mean very limited viewing.

    There's a 42" Samsung rear projection TV downstairs in my hall that seems really good. I'm not sure of the exact model, but it looks rather posh and expensive.

    IMO having tried direct view, RP and FP i would go for a combination of direct view and FP.

    Use the direct view CRT for normal TV and day to day background rubbish, then use the FP for movies, best combination as then you get a bright daytime screen (abeit small) and then have a decent sized image for the movies.

    Jez means you want a normal basic tv (probably the one u have now?) Then a front projector and screen for a massive image to watch films on. Its the route im going 2.

    Indeed (FP=front projection) :)

    I use a little 28" TV for viewing sky digital and day to day stuff, then use the projector for movies and football matches on sky sports etc :) best way i reccon as its only movies and football that need a large screen really IMO

    I want to replace my rented 32" Sharp widescreen with either tv.

    I need a tv than can cope with everyday viewing and my DTS home cinema.

    Get a big Tosh CRT the top ones come with DD5.1 on board, i dont know about the very latest versions whether they come with DTS as well, but the picture quality on the Tosh CRT's is very good.
