    Can someone explain to me why the loewe's Articos 55 (dlp re-pro) is £5500 and the sony 60inch lcd re-pro is only £3000. Is DLP that much better or is Loewe's such a designer name?

    If money was not a factor, which would be the better TV for watching sport?

    thanks

    DLP isn't 'better'. It's different. And more expensive to make.

    Personally, I will probably never have a one-chip DLP. (I'm talking about front projection, here, but it makes no difference). Because of the rainbows / nausea / eyestrain they cause. But not everyone is sensitive to this effect.

    LCD on the other hand has none of this. But you may find the density of black is not enough for your liking.

    There IS an element of brand with Loewe, but then the same is true of Sony, perhaps to a less expensive extent. Loewe DO make good TVs - better than Sony if we're talking about CRTs. But their choice of DLP over LCD is flawed in MY opinion - for the reasons above only.
