I've seen quite a few folks here mention all the issues they have with the newer LCD projectors like vertical banding and panel alignment etc... I was just wondering why they went with LCD technology in the first place. I've switched from LCD tech (AE200) to a DLP machine (BenQ PB6100) and I for one will not be going back. The constrast ratio and picture quality is far superior and the blacks actually look like black. I think that there is too much emphasis on 'the dreaded rainbow effect'. Sure. I noticed them at first (as did my wife) but after a week or two. Your brain learns not to see them and your left with a amazing picture rather then staring and tweaking VB on a LCD panel. I supppose i'm saying that folk that are after a new machine should not sell DLP short.
