    Cheers razor
    theres a very good article on the site about DLP technology check
    this review of it
    http://www.dlptvreview.com/dlptv-advantage.html
    Something i read somewhere the screens are very expensive so don't let little johny push a knife through it. I read on the samsung thread about screens showing a misty effect when first switched on it turned out to be water vapour trapped between the layers of the screen it clears after the set warms up or u can use a cloth to wipe the screen gentle pressure(easy damage the screen if u used a dirty cloth spectacle cloth should be good.)Its something that might be common to all DLPs especially in a humid atmosphere?still it's only the sammy owner at the moment.

    My father had that with this front projector the infocus 7205, he had to leave it for 24 hours to aclimatise to its new surroundings. It is now fine. Nothing to worry about. :)

    It' s bad enough for several to have gone to the trouble of getting the sets replaced.
    Reading about the xHD3 chips native resolution of 1081 its the same as the HD3 but scaled up, it has less mirrors than a hd2+ but more than a hd3 the mirrors are aranged in a diamond pattern and each mirror is responsable for putting the image on 2 pixels by switching quickly.I'm guessing it will still be described at having a film like quality like the HD3 but perhaps this time the majority might prefer it to HD2+?
    Whatever most of the DLP sets we've got are capable of outstanding picture quality
    with the best sources a lot of the problems some of the sets displaying sky ect will go away when hidef arrives.
    When i first had my RD50 i was using a poor DVD player through scart & i thought the picture was great.However now i've used a PC through DVI to play DVD's i relalise how wrong i was the quality of the best DVDs is outstanding best i've ever seen.

    I think I am going to send mine back but the hd-d45 i think would now be dissapointingly small - 5" does equate to alot of size/screen.

    I'm leaning towards keeping the RD50 as u can get superb R1 & R2 playback with a PC
    ( 1:85 movies are nowhere near as good but we've only a few & 1:85 should be fine with HiDef DVDs)
    The Lamp is rated at 10,000 hours i think thats longer than any of the other sets?
    The screen is bright enough to watch in daylight with the blinds wide open (i know it's winter & i have a north facing room)
    The sagem 45" should have the same picture quality as ours with no problems but its the same price or £2099 at Audiovision & you lose 5"
    All of the other DLP's at the same point as the RD50 seem to have their own problems
    The poor 1:85 playback could be a problem on all DLP sets ?
    One option is of course to wait till sky start the HiDef broadcasts that would save you money & get you a better set.
    If you were not made aware of the region one judder problem when you bought the set you might be entitled to compensation if you keep it?
    If you do send it back you should make sure whoever installs your set does a good job
    and you don't get any sound problems

    I have decided to keep my RD65 and get a HTPC as there is nothing to compare on the market.

    I wont change my set untill they have a 70' or bigger... :)

    2 inches isnt big enough for an upgrade. Im still in love with that 83' Mitsubishi. If only they would release it in the UK.
