Whilst still in the process of weighing up whether to get the Optoma, Tosh, or Sagem, i've stumbled across the following reviews on the Optoma RD50:- Review: We recently purchased the Optoma RD50 TV from Cambridge Soundworks. In the store the set looked awesome. Of course, they only had Discovery Channel HD playing. When we got the set home and hooked it up, we were stunned to see just how bad regular TV looks. Even after adjusting all the settings (i.e. color, contrast, saturation, sharpenss, etc), this thing looked awful. When I changed from regular cable over to one of our HD channels, the set came alive. The colors were perfect, and the picture was by far the sharpest I've seen of any HD set. While this is great, we only get about 7 HD channels. We still watch a lot of regular TV as well, and don't want to have a horrible picture while watching this. My advice on this TV is if you watch mostly HD channels only, get this TV. If not, you may want to wait. We're bringing ours back and getting a Sony Grand Wega LCD. Review: I have had 4 signifcant problems with the TV in the past 8 months. First a cluster of pixels blew. leaving a permanent glowing white spot on the display. Then a fan died causing the unit to overheat and shut itself off. Then 2 oval smudges appeared on the screen which could not be removed by their tech support. At that point I was given a new TV, since they apparently have a 3 strikes rule before they will replace the set. However, the new TV came with 2 areas of video noise at the upper and lower borders of the display out of the box. I am presently dealing with that issue. Even though I think the image is terrific, I am very disappointed with reliability of the Optoma and would not recommend it at this time.
