DLP RPTV questions



Without going into a ton of details, I have decided to go with a DLP RPTV for my next home theater. My only requirements are that the screen be at LEAST 52" with a preference of 60+, and I want but am not completely sold on the whole 1080p thing. Looking to the future, I guess 1080p is important, but if anyone has any thoughts or convincing points for or against, please enlighten me on them. I will be viewing mostly HD content and DVD (HDDVD when available). I have a budget of $2500 but can go to 3k if it makes a big enough difference. I will need it by January 1st, so take into account either new availabilities or price drops by that time if possible. Just to throw a wrench into it I was also interested in the DILA LCoS technology because of the cost benefit, but due to detrimental things I've heard about them, I've been pushed away from them. If someone has a contrasting opinion on the technology, I'm all ears. Thanks ahead of time for all the info, and I will reserve my thoughts until I hear some of your opinions.

Also, I was planning on buying it from a reputable ONLINE dealer and possibly purchasing an extended warranty. Please do not factor the extended warranty cost into the final price 2500-3000 and offer your opinions on warranty as well. Thanks again!!


If you're enquiring about U.S. models then this is perhaps the wrong place to ask as most members here are UK based. You may get opinions based on what we've read, but hardly any of us will have seen these sets working.

There are similar Forums to this on U.S. sites (not that we want to chase you away - plenty of other good stuff to be had :) ) where you can find people who actually own some of the sets you will be likely to buy.


thanks for the reply...yeah I didnt even realise until i started reading further into posts that that is that case. so i guess by saying that i might splurge for one of those new sxrd 50" models would get me shot around here. ;)
