Are Rear Projection HDTVs the best value?
Plasma and LCDs are more chic and sexy but even with huge price cuts on "flat pannel" sets, I think rear projection HDTVs are the best value.
Basically, you get a front projector in a contained box with lots of inputs and a pretty big screen for a REALLY low price. No, they don't hang on the wall but they make a bright, sexy image that is suitable for HDTV from your cable or sat system at 720p or 1080i as well as inputs from HD DVD and Blu-ray in 1080p.
What do you think? Are rear projection sets the best value or should people buck up for the flat pannel, the install, the hardware etc... to go for more of the custom look?
