Hi, I was already thinking of buying the 42" Panasonic HDTV Plasma 42PV500 (or Pioneer) when i noticed the SAGEM 56" (i think) DLP rear pro with HD signal on it. It was very good! I live in Germany but that day was in London visiting friends and went to Curry's to compare the prices. Currently i have 29" 4x3 standart CRT. I know a lot about plasma's now but very little about DLP rearpro TV's. here are my requirements: 1. HDTV with HDMI input - don't want to spend my money on something i change in 2-3 years. 2. price - as low as possible but not going to buy "cheap" brands. best will be around 2000 euro or less. 3. good connectivity. 4. preferably hanged to the wall but will live with TV on bench. have anough room. 5. one of the main - don't want to see pixels from 3m distance. Now i did a little investigation and calculated the pixel size for common plasma's and DLP's: diagonal H pixel, mm V pixel, mm 42 Plasma SD 1.09 1.09 42 Plasma 0.91 0.68 50 Plasma 0.81 0.81 44 DLP 0.76 0.76 46 DLP 0.80 0.80 50 DLP 0.86 0.86 52 DLP 0.90 0.90 From 2.5-3 meters i hardly see any difference between 42" SD and HD plasma. That means the pixel size less than 1mm will do OK for me. DLP's are cheaper than Plasma's for the same size - that's the main reason to choose 50"DLP over 50" plasma (perfect choice) I would like to watch digital cable and HDTV as soon as it is out here as well as HD DVD's (WMVHD for the first time with PC). Which DLP should i choose? I don't trust Thomson. The next in price is Toshiba. Sagem and Samsungs are more expensive than Toshiba i saw the list on the parallel thread: LCD Rear Projection TVs Thomson 50DLY645 50" Rear Projection Television DLP Rear Projection TVs Sagem Axium HDD45 High Definition DLP TV Sagem Axium HDD56 High Definition DLP TV Samsung SP50L7HX 50 Slimline High Definition DLP TV Samsung SP46L6HXX Thomson 50DSZ645 High Definition Slim DLP TV Toshiba 46WM48P 46" DLP Rear Projection Television Toshiba 52WM48P 52" DLP Rear Projection Television Are there any other DLP rearpo's HD ready and with HDMI? I personally tending towards Toshiba 46WM48P or 52WM48P but haven't seen them in real. If they are as good as SAGEM then it's OK. Which one is better, 46" or 52"? I understand that 46" will look sharper on SD movies and probably brighter if they use same bulb? Thanks in advance!
