just to chime in, i have the older model of the 73" (WD-73C9) and i LOVE it.

it has a fantastic picture and the only complaint/warning i would give, as a few others have mentioned, is the viewing angle. you really do need to be sitting in front of it both vertically and horizontally. ideally, your eyes will be level with the center of the screen (vertically).

vertical viewing angles are more finicky. a simple 5-10 inches above or below the vertical center and you will notice one half of the screen go darker.

regardless, i love the tv, PQ is great, home entertainment has never been so enjoyable!

SIDE NOTE: after you get the tv, call dell and tell them you want to cancel/return because you found it 100$ cheaper at (insert other store, frys, tigerdirect, circuit city, best buy, cowboom) and they will credit you back 100$ bringing the cost down to 999.

this works for any dell purchase, not just TVs, however, with the tv being so big and expensive to ship, you can get more credit. for laptops/desktops, you can usually get 25-50 credited back this way. with tvs of this size, you can easily get credited 100 back (personally ive never tried for more than 100 but YMMV)

Dell doesn't verify your claim? Surprising they would just take your word for it...

you're not asking for a price match.

you're straight up saying you want to cancel/return the item. when they ask why you simply state it's because you found it somewhere else for XXX cheaper.

you're not asking for a credit or a discount, they are volunteering to give you a credit because they would rather you keep the item than return it.

I have a question that maybe someone can help with:

I plan on getting the 3d adapter for the 65" dlp I just bought...will installing the adapter have any negative affect on non-3d programming? or does it not matter at all? I saw one poster over on amazon who said that non-3d shows don't look as good now the he installed the 3d adapter.

anyone have any input?

That poster is.. to put it gently... retarded.

The adapter has absolutely no effect on non-3D programming, it acts as an HDMI pass through.

This is not a flame, just a question. Why would someone want a DLP set over a plasma, LED and LCD. I had one a few years back and it was great if you were directly in front of it, but sucked from every other angle.

Again, i'm just curious. I haven't been keeping up with the DLP tech.

Considering this for a windowless 11' x 18' room. Does this mean that sitting four people across, the people on the ends would lose clarity of the picture? Or if people want to sit on the floor in front of a couch, will they be too low if the TV is on a stand that's about 30" tall?

Also, how far back from the TV is the ideal seating?

Thanks!

Display rate( speed ), price and size. Also if you care about 3D the larger sizes lend themselves to 3D much better than smaller screens.

On a side note DLP is really the technology that revolutionized TV into the digital age. The first reasonably priced ( 3-5k) DLP's were the Samsung HLM models( example HLM-5065). Before them there were just two a Mits and a Panasonic that were very expensive ( 10k+). These TV's arrived when the sales floor was filled with CRT tv's and conventional rear projection TV ( CRT RGB ). These conventional rear projection TV's suffred from convergence issues, burn in, weighed a lot ( 200lbs) , and were often more than 2 feet deep. They had their positives too ( black level mainly ). DLP came along with a PC input, no burn in- finally games on the big screen, no convergence issues, weighed 60-70% less than a conventional rear projection TV, were shallow 15" deep range. They really ushered in the possibility of Home theater PC. Of course their place in the market today with the rise in larger LCD panels has diminished greatly. Basically their relevance is now large screen size for less money. I see people crap on DLP all the time now. They are just ignorant of the evolution of tv in my opinion.

Lastly if you don't like dlp why would you rate this deal? The idea is to rate the deal not the technology, or am I missing something?

I don't know about everyone else, but our family room area is about 12'x16'. The TV sits on top of a 24" home theater stand and on the center at the back wall. The long couch sits 12' directly straight from the TV, when people are sitting, their heads are actually 14' from the TV. The short couch is sitting about 9' from the TV and against the wall on the side, so folks sitting on the short couch have about a 45 degree viewing angle from the center of the TV. Personally, I do not notice any difference in brightness if I'm standing up (I'm about 6' tall) or sitting down on the long couch. I'm not sure if I see any difference either if I'm sitting down on the short couch either.

The family room is an open area that leads to the dining and kitchen area. Folks sitting/standing on the dining room area which is about 25' from the TV can see and clarity and brightness is just fine. From the kitchen, which is about 35' from the TV is fine, too.

In general, I find that the closer you are from the TV, the effects of your viewing angle (brightness) is magnified. The farther you are, the less.

You know, it probably won't work if EVERYONE does it.

I might have to return mine anyway. The TV is so freaking huge, my wife HATES it. Her exact words were, "If you love the thing so much, why don't you sleep with it in the family room." I'm waiting to see who can hold out longer before I return the TV.
