    Re: HDTV's Plasma vs DLP.. opinions

    Well if the 61" Samsung that you are looking at is the 1080p resolution one, that is the best on the market right now, next to the Sony SXRD TVs. There aren't any plasma TVs that can reach 1080p resolution as far as I know. Plasma TVs have an extended life expectancy of about 4-6 years compared to DLP's 2-3 years. However, plasma TVs cannot be repaired once they burn out. DLP TVs are user (shop) serviceable where they have replaceable bulbs. They cost about $400-$500 to service. Anything else you want to know ask me. I may have left something out.

    No, that information is incorrect.

    DLP (and LCD projection) bulbs will cost anywhere from $75-300, most of which are in the $200 range. You can do it your self, it's almost idiot proof. For most TVs, all you will need is a Philips-head screw driver.

    Most plasma made in 2005-up should have a minimum life expectancy of 50,000 hours.

    but rear projection HD CRT televisions are $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    I personally think the DLP rear projection TV's look fantastic, as long as it's got a 3x or better colorwheel speed. There's even high-end DLP projectors that have seperate chips for each color, but they're in the "PRO" pricerange, but movie-theater quality.

    I don't care for rear projection LCD's.

    And i think LCD flat-screens look better than plasma.

    But $ for $, i'd take a big ol' DLP rear projection over a flat screen any day of the week.

    Re: HDTV's Plasma vs DLP.. opinions

    CRT is a tube (a TV), or tubes (projection)
    DLP is a lightbulb, a mirror, and a colorwheel.
    And LCD is a lightbulb, and 3 colored lcd grids.

    They all have ups and downs. CRT's only down being cost, and size. They have THE best picture, and the longest life, pending accidently damage, obviously.

    Read up on each, and try and see each for yourself, side by side. There's really no other way to know what you like best. Just like car audio specifications, there's no mandatory standard for measurement of things like brightness, or contrast, so without seeing each of the TV's, you don't know what you're really getting.

    Matt

    If you do much gaming dont buy a plasma, they suffer from image burn if theres any static images left on screen for too long.

    DLP, LCD (flat panel or rear projection), or LCOS (JVC, higher end Sony rear projection) are the only safe choices.
