    not too sure but i would say you'll see little difference between the sets. i think ppl have had the best experience with the sagem and optoma. the tosh is good but it seems you need to turn it on before the pc, also it is not true 1:1 mapping through dvi. hope this helps.

    The Optoma RD50 is very good with a PC it does suffer from not being able to playback R1 DVD's with out the picture juddering however if you use a PC DVD playback of R1 DVD's is very good.
    There's a lot of information about this in my thread
