Why is the choice so hard ! Both same price I want a silver TV RD50 is black. The RD50 has the new HD+2 chip and more inputs !!!! I have seen the Axium in comets and was impressed even the sky feed was acceptable at distance of course becuase of the crap quality of SKY. I havent seen the Optoma anyone seen them both and can coment ? I have read all the posts but cant find anyone who has seen them both and can say which is better. Thanks.
