    Hello, am I right in assuming that the SP50L7HX uses a 3 colour wheel... If so, In that vain does anyone know if Samsung are going to introduce the TV with the 7 colour wheel and would this make the picture any better? :confused:

    Billy, I think you're slightly confusing the number of colours on the wheel with the wheel segments. All DLP colour wheels have three basic colours (Red, Green and Blue), the wheel is then divided into segments. Most new DLP RPTVs now have a 7 segment colour wheel, a few have 6 and there maybe one with 8.

    Basically the more segments on the wheel the less likely the screen will suffer from the rainbow effect.

    Its the Panasonic that has the 8 segment wheel but it is only available in the us, which is a shame as it has great feedback.
