New around here, and only just getting fired up to the HC idea, so forgive an innocent question! I'm having difficulty finding a local demo room (Wokingham, Berks) to show me DLP alongside a plasma screen in sensible viewing conditions (to me that means subdued lighting but not cinema blackout). Also, to be fair, they would have to have similar resolution capabilities. Can those who have seen these side by side tell me what my first reaction is likely to be, apart from size? Will the projector look a lot dimmer and softer, or are they on a par? If I were to wind down the pj to a 42" diagonal, would they be indistiguishable? What would be the biggest difference visually? I might be able to see what I want at Bristol (if I make it), but would like to hear some views on this very useful forum. T I A.
