  They will definitely not be _sharper_: as can be seen with 32P, screens
make images less sharp/more fuzzy. 
  The manufacturers say that screens/-80 are no use; although we have not
yet done a serious comparison, I have the feeling that our 33P is a bit
stronger with a screen (approx x 1.5 ???).
  Anybody done this properly?
