Having lost patience with LCD technology, I am researching my best option for a replacement (sub £8000) 16:9 projector. I'm (err ... my wife) is not convinced with CRT, so I guess I'm looking at DLP. My initial thoughts are either the Sharp 9000 or the Sim2 HT300, however I was wondering if there was any hidden problems with DLP technology (apart from rainbow) that are a big issue? Is it possible to get either dead pixels (suppose its a mirror?) with DLP or annoying dust particles? It is these two problems that have driven me away from LCD! Is there any other model I should be considering? Thanks!
