Rear Projection TV - good/bad


does anyone know about the good and the bad points of a rear projection tv ...?
Im just in the market of buying one at the moment.

good--great value for $$$$, terrific picture....bad---VERY cumbersome and take up a fair amount of space

I still prefer a direct view TV. RP sets are getting better but I would rather go with a 36" tube rather than a 65" RP.

I still would like a RP, but what are the "advantages" of a direct view over an RP?

Direct View sets are usually higher in resolution, require less maintenance (convergence), brighter per square foot and have a wider viewing angle.

what is the difference between a rear projection television and a standard television?
