Sony does not use DLP because it is not a better technology. It is cheaper to produce and thus the TV's tend to cost less with DLP.

well it depends what you are comparing to... a "better technology" than what? a traditional flatscreen? hell yes it is, i would say from selling tvs for a while that dlp has a better picture than most anything you can buy

Much better than projection, yes.

I personally like the picture of LCD and plasma better, however. To each his own though with their preference.

No Sony does not use the DLP technology. However they do use LCD and another much newer technology called LCOS, which in some ways is better than the DLP technology.

Their SXRD line uses LCOS and is a bit on the pricey side but since your bro gets a huge discount you should definetly ask him about it.

Price? I sell the 50'' Samsung DLP and the 50" Sony LCD for both the same price. LCD does get pricey when it comes to flat panel tho.

Is there an LCD that's not flat panel?

All this is some what irrelevant.

There are different quality Plasma's, LCD's, DLP's and CRT's.

Some LCD's look like complete ***. As well as some DLP's and some Plasma's. It all depends on how much you want to spend.

Fujitsu Plasma's are some of the best around right now, where samsung's DLP technology leaves everyone else in the dust.

Sony {LCD, etc} is competing with Texas Instruments {DLP patent owners},
Sony is too snobby to pay TI royalties thus would never use DLP. /hehe

I think CRT looks best still. Too many flaws with the other technologies if you
are a videophile. I'd rather buy DLP though unless they can make faster responding
LCD's otherwise action looks horrible in LCD. Plasma is very cool but expensive and
starts dying as soon as it's turned on.

Pick the less of the two weivels {Russel Crow}.
