I'm not sure how he has his setup. I don't know about his audio issues because my surround sound output is separate from the video. I use optical out from all my sources to my receiver since I don't have one that supports DTS MA or Dolby Digital True HD.

Yes there is overscan, it's not really a big deal. Yes you can resize the desktop and instead of 1920 x 1080 it might be like 1850 x 1062 or something like that for the task bar to show, most people wouldn't even notice the slight loss in resolution. I don't use my 73640 for much desktop usable but it's passable. Yes Rear Projection isn't the greatest for desktop usage since they weren't designed around that but neither are most other HDTV's. My previous RP CRT HDTV had a similar look. The main reason why it doesn't look quite as good as regular PC monitor is because most PC monitors support 4:4:4 chroma sub sampling and very few HDTV's support it. As a result text isn't quite razor sharp. Blue, Red, or Yellow text might look funny but it's only slightly annoying if things like that bother you. Also with Rear Projection there can also be some slight geometry issues, for instance my TV has a slight bow at the top of the screen, it's noticeable on a desktop if you have a window up near there or at the end of movies with scrolling text. There's some deep settings in the service menu that allow you to adjust but I haven't played with them yet. I don't notice these issues too much unless I'm specifically looking for them. But yes for TV, movies, and video games this style of TV is great but only mediocre for PC desktop use IMO. If it's not your main display for a desktop I'm sure you'll be just fine like for farting around Youtube, Facebook, or whatever.

I don't think he had his colors setup well but every TV is different to some degree from the factory. Some kind of calibration would help either from a test disc like DVE or Disney WoW but an ISF calibrator is best. I haven't ISF calibrated my TV but would like to one day.

There's a trick to getting 3D games to work at 1080p @ 60hz on PC. Since the TV is HDMI 1.4a it's usually stuck to 720p @ 60hz or 1080p @ 24hz for 3D, however there is a .INF driver hack called Rollermod for the TV that tricks the video card into thinking the TV only accepts HDMI 1.3, which allows for Checkerboard 3D 1080p @ 60hz. However you must to set the TV to no overscan for 3D on the PC to work properly.

I've played the following games in nVidia's 3D vision
Trine
Trine 2
Crysis 2
Battlefield 3
Limbo
Just Cause 2
Borderlands 2
Darksiders 2
Batman Arkham Asylum
Sleeping Dogs
Alice: The Madness Returns

They look fantastic. There's not much pop out. It's mostly depth. The games look better than Prometheus or The Avenger 3D BluRay IMO.

PS3 3D is decent but not nearly as good as PC 3D. But I don't have many games that support 3D on PS3. Yes PS3 3D is HDMI 1.4a 720p @ 60hz 3D but since most PS3 games render at 720p or lower res it doesn't really matter. PS3 games I've played:

Mortal Kombat 9
Wipeout HD
Killzone 3
Repped for the detail!

Guess I'll have to think about it for a while... LED and plasma have both come up short in one area or another since I have so many use cases. I was almost sold on DLP until I learned more about this overscan issue.

If I buy a new TV, the image has to look good. We stream a lot so I'm wondering how good Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc. look on this set running through a PC...

Thanks for the rep!

LEDs and Plasma's have overscan too but they usually have a 1:1 Pixel mapping mode like Just Scale or Just Fit or whatever. Every TV you've ever owned has had overscan. Rear Projection can't really do 1:1 pixel mapping but it's reasonably close (typically within 5%) and with video card scaling/overscan compensation it's mostly a moot point IMO.

I don't stream over the internet really (I do own a 3D Vudu movie that I can use the PS3 to stream though) however all video and movie content are 4:2:0 chroma sub sampling so they'll look fine on any HDTV. They're already stripped of the information that a PC monitor would have the advantage over an HDTV. That lack of information isn't really noticeable on content in motion such as movies and TV shows. Static images like text or using Photoshop/graphics software to make professional prints would benefit from the 4:4:4 chroma sub sampling. So basically if you mean by desktop usage for streaming video like Youtube, Hulu, Netflix, Vudu, or Amazon Prime you'll be just fine. If you like the cinematic/theater look then DLP is the way to go.

Ordered on the Thu the 8th and delivered on the Fri the 9th (apparently, it was a local delivery).

So far, so good. Aside from the vertical viewing angle, the picture quality is superb. The only other caveat I have is that there's no inputs in the front, but that's a minor quibble.

The TV will sit right in my line of sight. I don't think vertical will be a problem.

I decided to pull the trigger and get this one from Paul's TV via Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/...e=&seller=

Current model, they agreed to give me a 4 year warranty n/c plus the whole delivery deal, $1682 total plus I got to use a big credit I had from Amazon plus the rest is on their 12 months to pay at 0% interest deal, so it will be pretty painless plus the final kicker is they have a 30 day price match guarantee, so if it drops either there or anywhere else, they will refund the difference, so I am covered if it gets cheaper for BF, etc.

My 73" will prob end up in my kitchen/family room if I can figure out something to put it on-not going to pay $300 for a stand. Maybe an old dresser or something, Open to suggestions on that, BTW. Thanks.

Not a bad deal considering you got the newer model. I wonder what the difference is between the 740 and the 742?

They won't price match Black Friday sales prices.

Price matches must be like for like with the same model number, product condition, shipping charges, bundled items, taxes and any other fees or terms and conditions associated with the purchase from the competitor. Price Match policy excludes special prices offered the week of Black Friday thru Cyber Monday (November 18th thru November 26th 2012).

ordered on the 7th, and it came in yesterday. I'm in atlanta.

my current stand is 22" tall, and from floor to top of tv it is probably 6' tall. lol. it is a beast!

my sofa is 19" tall, and eye level ends up being below the middle of the tv. the viewing angles on this (and dlp in general) are pretty sensitive. the tops can sometimes appear darker due to this. Looking for a stand that will hold my components and is at the right height is pretty difficult, so I think I may just raise my sofa. lol. if i raise it between 6-10" viewing will be excellent.

i did watch a movie last night as is, and thought the picture was excellent.

Well I missed the devliery guys by an hour (stupid job called me in on my day off) and now the tv won't be delivered until the 26th maybe. How the heck are you supposed to get this damn tv when they only deliver during normal business hours and you work a regular 9-5 job? Certainly not taking vacation time to accept a delivery.
