Hi, Having a decision trauma ... any help really appreciated! My current proj: Sony VPL-VW11HT My current dislikes: Black level (not 'Smarted' yet) & stuck pixels! My current likes: WXGA panel & brightness/sharpness (using a 10 ft screen) Future options (probably from pricejapan): 1. Go for a HD2 DLP (Sharp Z10000, Marantz S2 or Tosh MT8) 2. Go for a VPL-VW12HT Pros option 1: Better blacks, more film like image, no (limited) risk of dead pixels Cons option 1: I think I'm suspect to rainbows (although I've only ever seen 1 DLP proj - runco CL500), lower resolution, new ceiling mount required , more £££ Pros option 2: Better blacks than I've got now, keep same ceiling mount (easy proj swap over), retain WXGA panel, Only £2844+VAT !!! Cons option 2: Still a risk of dead pixels - which I really can't live with (well the bright green variety anyway!), Blacks not HD2 black. I guess it comes down to rainbows vs dead pixels ... I've had bad experience with dead pixels as on all my LCD projectors I've not had them on projector delivery - they've appeared after about 3 months use. I suppose there is an argument for saying that a few rainbows experienced during a 2hr film is better than staring at a green dot for 2hrs??? I was considering going to see Roland in the new year about a second hand 9" CRT, however people have told me that they see rainbows on CRT too!!! (and I don't think it was a wind-up) Happy Christmas everyone ... enjoy your viewing!!!
