    What is the picture quality like on a DLP???

    How would you compare it against CRT/Plasma/Projector etc??? I want to upgrade my 32" but won't see any benefit from plasma as its not going on the wall!! Can't find a decent way to hide a projector (from an aesthetics perspective) So need to find a nice larger screen that fits my bill!!!

    If PQ isn't upto I'll have to stick with my CRT :mad: :mad:

    Thanks
    Stace :D

    Well I've currently got what I consider one of the better pictures you can get on a CRT I forget the model number but it's a 36inch widescreen Philips with 100hz motion scan blah blah, everyone comments how good the pictures is.
    But the Sagem I saw in Comet just blew me away it's easily the best picture I have ever seen from any kind of TV/projector.
    Even my wife loved it and she's hard to please, she said it almost looked 3D or as if you were looking through a window, admittedly it was playing a high definition source but it really is something worth looking into if your in the market for a new TV.
