How soon before we start seeing those formats widely used? Would I absolutely need SLI/crossfire to play BF2 on a decent size? What about a higher refresh LCD, not just brighter? I am not sure if I would pay any more than say 13% - 15% more than the competing high res/high refresh rate monitor just to get darker blacks and brighter whites. With building my own media center pc very soon, I am thinking more and more of replacing the living room tv with a do-it-yourself projector, so that I could not only watch tv, but play a little BF2 before the wife got home but that would also suffer from low refresh rates, and (probably most assuredly), horrible definition.

the fact that for uber high res screens you need to use 2 dvi ports linked together is just retarded

The first ever prototype was a projector system, it did not offer the same contrast as the 18 or 37 inch lcd's but still was pretty good.

1. Did anyone else notice excessive combing artifacts in the videos? Seemed more pronounced to me on the BridgetSide display than in the Westinghouse - is this an issue with the camera recording it having problems or is it noticeable in RL as well? If it's noticeable in RL, is this an issue with the underlying display tech or could algorithms be improved in later production models to reduce this?
2. Color rendition seemed a little off, especially in the LotR scenes - again: camera problems or real? I imagine this can actually be attributed to the camera since it would blow out most of the channels where the highest brightness was, where the color rendition problems looked to be.

In any event, I thought LCD burn-in wasn't really much of an issue with the newer panels? I wouldn't know as I haven't got one!
