    Not necessarily, they manufacture Large LCD flat panel displays as well. Physical appearance wise they look alot like a Plasma display.

    Here is a flat panel LCD...Link.

    Here is a rear projection LCD...Link.

    Can you add to your selection, DLP? (digital light processor) It comes in front and rear projection but the process is entirely different than the standard front or rear projection process.

    Large screen LCD's are generally RP TV's. Small screens are simply LCD screens, much like a flat panel PC monitor

    As to my TV's -- Sony 32HS500 32" 4:3 HDTV monitor in my mini-home theater room, 25" Magnavox stereo TV in family room, 26" GE mono console in guest room, 19" Emerson in master bedroom, 19" KDS PC CRT monitor on my PC (driven by ATI All-in-Wonder 9600 video card w/tuner)

    Hi Charlie, Philips has a new line of large flat panel LCD's. Starting at 42" I believe. I know the 42" is public...here is the link.

    You know what they say about "If you have to ask how much"? Right? :lol:

    How much? Well, lots! And I sure can't afford them!. Actually, there's a host of larger screen LCD's on the market. Sony, Toshiba and Samsung, for example. Samsung has a 46 inch HDTV monitor with native 1920 by 1080 resolution, 2 NTSC tuners (no ATSC tuner) -- Crutchfield has it for a mere $7995. Pricey, but the Sony 42 inch set with 2 NTSC tuners plus an ATSC tuner sells for $9999, and only has a native resolution of 1366 by 768. Samsung showed a 60 inch LCD at CES last week! No indication as to when or if it will be brought to market.
