    I went into a i-fi shop last year and asked for a demo on their projectors.

    They only stocked DLP and I saw a mess of rainbows everytime there was any action.

    Is it likely that see it with one DLP projector and you will have the problem with them all?

    My problem is it seems DLP is 'better', people recommend them more!

    You may have to take your family and friends into consideration if your buying a DLP i assume, not fun if your the only one without any viewing problems. DLP is not your only choice anymore. Im no expert, sure someone will give you better advice.


    3LCD, the pannys are top notch and many have them on this forum, and no chicken wire in sight - AE3000 is the flagship model around 2k, so work your way down to your price range. Then you have the new expensive JVC's & Sony (cheaper price) (D-ILA/SXRD/LCOS) with their technologies - see links below for different types. It might help if you have a budget in mind, and someone can recommend a projector other than DLP.

    DLP would be the display technology of choice for me if it was not for the fact that it causes eyestrain in my case. I had to give up a top range DLP projector for this reason. My next preference, and next nearest to DLP for filmic quality, is LCOS.
    I now have a SONY VPL-HW10 which is Sonys version of LCOS named SXRD in their case. It produces a very nice image and can be bought for around £1800.
    See Phil Hintons review of the HW10 in the AV Reviews section of these forums.

    I see the rainbow effect all the time so the 1 chip dlp's are not any good fo rme. I did find the Infocus screenplay in80 very good and I didn't suffer from the rainbow with this one

    Not necessarily. Not all products use the same colour wheel design or operate at the same rotational speed. I see RBE on some product but not on others so in my experience it varies. The other potential issue is how the PJ is demoed. Usually with out of the box settings or max brightness and this can trigger RBE.

    LCD/LCOS PJ's also have issues such as motion smear/blur so it's choose your poison.
