    I've been thinking of getting a new T.V. for a while now, and I'm pretty certain that DLP rear projection is the way to go for me.

    The SP46L6HX looks the part, and from most of the reports that I've read, performance seems excellent.

    As the title asks, is there any reason why I shouldn't purchase this set, e.g. new improved version on the horizon, or something else? There will always be some newer, better sets in the future, but I'm not really the kind of person who likes to wait for the ultimate, as the "ultimate", ultimately gets bettered. I don't fancy waiting for all eternity.

    As long as you're aware of the pros and cons of owning a DLP rear pro then there's no reason at all not to buy the SP46, it's a very capable set, if not one of the better ones, and the current price compared to other models makes it a real bargain.

    That is a US Samsung model. By the time that set hits UK shores (if it ever does - the majority of their higher spec'd US models never do), there will be a whole new generation of DLP developments announced, then you can wait for those to arrive, and sometime in the next 10 years or so you might decide on a set...

    To answer the original poster's question, no - there is no reason not to buy this set. Had mine for two weeks and I am thrilled with it. I tested several sets before deciding on this one - for me the winner by a mile. Buy with confidence. :smashin:
