Visit the DLP Forum and be CONVINCED!
if you like rainbows, replacing the bulb , and dot crawl!!!
And picture break up on fast action scenes...............
i admit the picture quality is STUNNING. i`ve seen a HD feed and they are brilliant, however they are too many problems at present. Once the DLP chips become cheaper and build the screens with 2 DLP chips then many of these problems will disapper. but until then LCD rules!!!!
They need 3 to do away with Rainbows.
I sense LCD Bias. DLP's do rock but have 2 significant flaws IMHO. Rainbows (for those who actualy suffer from them and Gaming Lag (in the case of Samsung). There are no other issue wit this technology as mentioned above.
LCD for the moment I believe is better.
DLP always looks Amazing and 3 chip DLP is supposed to solve the rainbow effect.
Sadly, it's LCD all the way for me and lots of other Brits becasue our pokey homes aren't really up to those humongous boxes.
Sounds good in theory, but would that mean you'll have to replace 3 bulbs ? i was looking at the Sony 42" rear projection set the other day, reasonable picture but apparently the bulbs cost about £300 and last usually for about 2 years... blimey, that's a lot of money!
I thought you were sending yours back ?
There's still only a single lamp in a three chip system. A prism sits between the lamp and the 3 DMDs which splits the light into it's 3 component parts.
Yeah I'd love a DLP...then I could hang it on my wall, type this reply using it as a PC monitor whilst watching and listening to A1GP on Sky Sports using the Picture in Picture facility...which is what I am doing right now on my lovely Samsung LE26R41B.
The viewing angle problem will still exist....That was the reason for not buying when I looked. Not only are you angle critical but also you must view it from the correct hight....
Thats exactly why i decided that i wasn't doing to get one!
i was looking to buy a DLP when ui missed out buying the Sharp GA43/3e screens. i looked at a samsung one and the toshiba one costco were doiung and
a relative of mine got the tosh. 30 mins of RoTK and i could take no more rianbows, he couldnt see any but his missus and kids could.
seriusly nice pic quality DLPS give out but more than few peeps including me self are affected buy the rainbow thing
Actually, DLPs (or at least SAGEM's rear pros) have another significant issue - the frosty / dirty look to the screen itself.
It's not really a problem in reality. The horizontal viewing plane is no worse than an LCD, granted vertical viewing can be a problem if the screen is too much out of your eyeline but when it's set up at home properly it should be at the correct height. Unless you prefer to watch TV standing up that is.
I've only seen this on the one model, ie. Sagem HD-D45, which is down to the anti-reflective screen they use in that model other manufacturers seem to have this sorted as do Sagem in later models.
