    Hi all,
    Apart from the physical dimensions and wall mountability, what are the pros and cons of DLP in comparison with Plasma?

    I'm really asking this question to people who have first hand experience of using both for long enough to be able to make a comparison.

    Cheers.

    H.

    viewing angle, most rear projection tv's have very poor viewing angles, so the best picture is sat dead in front, not to the sides, I know mine did! (sony)

    The only viewing angle problem todays DLP TVs have is viewing vertically. You need to be in line with the screen or just below, anything on the horizontal is not such a problem.

    The major disadvantage with DLP is the possibilty of owners being susceptible to seeing the so-called rainbow effect, a side-effect of the way colour is produced via the use of a colour wheel.
