Congratulations too on your new DLP! I hope it has the stunning pictures you are searching for. Your photo's are good enough to indicate a great PQ when fed with a good signal.
I am myself on the search for a new TV. At the moment I have a small (20" or so) Loewe TV (which has a nice picture and very beautiful colors), but want to go big- and widescreen. And finally want a DVD-player too. What a quest I have gotten myself into... After lots of viewing I decided hat LCD (PQ is not the best, no deep blacks, pricy) and Plasma (screen-burn in issue, PQ deterioates) are not for me, and got interested in DLP RPTV's. Especially the absence of screen burn-in appeals to me, because I don't want to buy a widescreen TV to look at distorted 4:3 pictures, so I want 'harmless' black borders in that case. The Sagem RD45 - though not available in my country yet - got me very interested specwise, so its is with great interest, and appreciation, that I read your experiences.
I would like to ask one specific question. A feature of this Sagem is the new 'native' picture format. I don't know what it is, but what I am hoping for is that it shows a picture in its native resolution, without upscaling (which causes a worse PQ I feel). So a standard PAL feed should then be represented in its native resolution with black borders on all four sides. At least, that is what I am searching for, I only want full screen when the feed warrants it. Do you know if the Sagem has this optional format feature?
OK, second question, sorry: picture detail is nice to have but not that important to me, but I do like rich, deeply saturated colors. Does the Sagem deliver on this?
Thank you very much for your help, and in any case good luck and happy viewing with your new DLP!
