    hi, i'am considering buying a 50" samsung dlp rear projection tv, i dont see rainbow effect as a problem for me, but am worried about the thickness of this screen due to the size of my room, ive seen the picture in HD signal, and i love it.

    thing is ive seen lcd screens, and i think that terrestrial tv pictures and the like look pretty awful, but its good for my room as i can hang these types of screen on my wall, and i prefer these to plasmas because i will be surfing internet and playing video games on it an awful lot, and LCDs apparently do not get burn-in as I've heard.

    what i would like to know is, and i would be greatful if someone could help me soon as i am thinking of buying within the week, is if you were to compare a DLP rear projection tv with a HD signal's picture quality with an LCD screen's HD signal's picture quality (in which i have never seen before) which would you think be the best option?


    if i need to provide more information on this to help answers, please let me know,

    thanks

    err ... as you're posting in a DLP forum, you're going to get kinda a biased response :)

    I actually took time to re-view several higher end Plasma and LCD panels over the weekend, in case I was missing out on the latest generation. After viewing several, I'm still sold on DLP.

    The main turn off for me with LCD is what I would call refresh or scan rate (even though this is not the correct term), what I mean is if you have a fast moving screen or pan, you get what I guess you could say was a form of motion blur where it appears as if the screen can't update fast enough.

    I'm more sold on Plasma over LCD technology, but with that said I still feel as if DLP has a more natural picture over all of them. If you still wanna go for a plasma or LCD, I would go with Pioneer, they are by far the best of the bunch that I have seen (IMO).

    I have seen DLP and LCD on HD and personally think DLP has the edge BUT that is not to say LCD isnt good. I think the refresh rate issue on LCD's has pretty much been sorted on all except on the cheapest of screens. I have just taken delivery of a 26" LCD today for my bedroom but am going for DLP as the main viewing screen for the living room. :D

    Re: Burn-in...EVERYWHERE I have read says LCD's suffer no burn-in, hwever the manual for mine says that if viewing a letterbox or 4:3 image (with black borders on either top or bottom) for excessive amounts of time that Burn-in can occur??? :confused:

    :offtopic: ....but.....Not a Samsung, by any chance, is it? I suspect that the author of the manual doesn't know that Plasma and LCD differ and simply copied & pasted. Rather like the manual for a phone (with a Lithium-Ion battery) which warns of memory effect (a feature exclusive to NiCd batteries).

    LCD's do suffer a burn in effect but the effect is only temporary lasting a few hours. :thumbsup:
