    Samsung looks better aesthetically to me, and it looks like a better put together package IMO.

    But .... if money is no object then why not make Razor's day and buy an Optoma RD-65 :D You'll have the kudos of being the third person on the forum to have one :D

    Nigel. You must be getting really sick of reminding everyone about the RD65 60Hz issue. You should make a sticky thread in bold letters stating it's failures so you don't have to tell each and every new person that comes in here about it's shortcummings... :thumbsup:

    LV should do the same for rainbows :rolleyes: :thumbsup:

    BTW Optoma's advertising has this in-compatibility clearly labled. Not Suitable for NTSC. I dont think that someone would shell out £4,000-00 for a DLP set without reading the broucher. :smashin:

    :D

    ok the real reason :cool: why i cannot go for a rd 65 :) good dlp thou is cuz as my sagem 50" broke i can only get a replacement from C.... so the options are any other dlp aprt from rd65 which they refuse to sell, anyway u cannot get them from most retailers anyway....

    razor - so u reckon the sumsung 50" can i ask why?????? why not the 56" sagem

    Not many places do sell Optoma gear, its normaly stocked at AV specialists and not by Electrical Superstores. :confused:

    I recomend the samsung 50 as it is a very good picture and has no real weaknesses. :thumbsup: Some peple dont like the styling but I think it looks cool :cool:

    I like the look of the Sagem 45 but I wasnt to impressed with the picture quality (I prefer the picture on the Axuim 50' by Sagem to the 45'). The frosty screen is a real issue. I havent yet seen the 56' in action but I have been told that the screen is not as bad as the 45 when it comes to the frosty picture. It is still ment to be there just not as bad. I dont know how true this is. :confused: Picture below

    http://www.avforums.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1746943&postcount=10

    Becareful as you might not see this effect in a show room with their lighting conditions. I would contact Sagem and ask them if the screen on the 56' is made out of the same material as the 45'. If it is I wouldnt consider this set.

    If I was going to buy a 50' screen I would definately go for the samsung 50'.
    If I was to go bigger then I would go for my set the RD65. :D

    We really need some more DLP models on the market but as usual the UK is always last. :(

    :D

    hey cheers razor

    i will have a look at the 56" and if it does have the frosty screen then the samsung it is.
    got some peeps to have a look around and they said they liked the samsung, soooo i am leaning towards the samsung untill i see the sagem 56", anyway most likely will go for a samsung, it has got some really good reviews anyway

    :D keep up the good work, oh and the rd65 :cool:

    I'm very happy with my Tosh 52" allied to a Lumagen DVi processor. I reckon it now gives out pictures to match anyone else, including Sagem, Samsung and Optoma. Though if I had the money to spend now I suspect I'd be lured towards the Sagem 56" for about the same money my Tosh and Lumagen cost.

    Regards

    Mark

    > Lumagen is a nice piece of kit. Not cheap tho.

    Yeah, I have to agree to both points.

    Actually, thinking about it, I'm glad I did go the Tosh+Lumagen rather than Sagem as I now use my Lumagen on my Sanyo Z3 as well. And boy Sky sure needs all the help it can get when blown up to 8 foot. :)

    Regards

    :hiya: Razor, must disagree when it comes to picture quality both sets are about equal. so then what's the next area to consider, screen size. Hmmm 50 or 56" You decide :rotfl: :rotfl:

    one thing i have to agree on is BIG fat SLIM SCREENS :D

    i lov big screens, but as its been mentioned before by razor UK is always behind.... :mad:

    i would rather go for a rear projection then front projection, its not the same and tooo much hazzle with the front projection :boring: u will need to live in a mansion tooo start with..... :rolleyes:

    what do u lot think of lcd displays any good??? ok for get it..... dlp rocks

    my coz in US bought a 70" sony hd tv, looks awesome the specs are not bad either...

    panasonic do not have demad in the uk sooo all big screens are in the US, i was curious so called them up and thats what they said.

    i think i should start my own dlp company in the UK so my customers can get hugh screens well at least razor will buy from me 100" will look wicked :D
