    Pardon me if this is the wrong thread...

    But does anyone own or have any experience with any LCOS rear-pro TV, like Philips 55PL9873?

    This is a 55-inch LCOS Rear Projection TV... might be a good alternative for those who are thinking of buying a DLP set, but haven't quite made up their minds yet.

    Isn't LCOS supposed to have a better PQ, compared to other types Rear-Projection TVs (dlp, crt, lcd)?

    Thanks... although still on (awaiting stock) 247electrical.co.uk

    I wonder why there aren't any LCOS rpTVs here in UK.
    They're supposed to have taken off quite well, and getting good reviews in the States.

    It was ment to be coming out last march. I was very interested in this set at the time and was disapointed that they cancelled it. Philips are a good rear pro manufacture. My father has a 11 year old 46' 4:3 model and I have a 5 year old 46' widescreen model in my bedroom.

    Interesting to see how Lcos fairs against DLP.
