With all these great attributes, you would think at 1/2 the price for the same size LCD/plasma they would be selling more than only 2-3 DLP's for ever 100 tv's sold...
The DLP troll returns. On his mission to make sure he spreads as much fear, uncertainty, and doubt on his quest to make sure no one buys a DLP for some reason.
Are you really confused? Not everyone wants, needs, or has the space for a 73+ inch TV which are the only DLP's available so off course the market is much smaller. Same reason no one has a LCD projector or DLP that does a max of 19 to 42 inches or any rear projection TV ever made since the 70's. They are too big compared to other choices and do not make sense in that size. Those that do want the size and have the space, DLP is priced right and the quality is on par for most people. Most DLP owners are not fanbois, they are just equally confused why people that do not have them and have never had one made recently make random comments or present random hypothetical situations that do not exist in most homes. Like that picture you always post from a store that shows the glare. Any TV (LCD, plasma, CRT,) with a flat gloss screen from your position would have that. Who has a 100x200 ft room with 35 foot ceilings filled with a hundred or so overhead warehouse lights and 30 or so halogen accent lights in their living room and plans on sitting 20 feet away at a 45 degree angle under those conditions? I'll give you a hint, NO ONE. That situation is not ideal but that is not representative of a real scenario. Your attempt to compare and relate to something is a fail. "I had a DLP in 2005 in my sunroom and I want to sit way over in the corner and watch it, it sucked and therefore they all suck" Well I had an LCD in 2005 and it sucked too does that mean they all suck now? Will a 73 or larger be good in a 8x10 room sitting 2 feet from the wall with a picture window with full sun off to the side? Probably not. In a proper room that is not hard at all to setup (most likely, the average larger living or family room), they provide a great experience. I also have a 47, 32, and a 19 inch LCD and 2 50 inch plasmas in my house as well. Each has its purpose and its place.
We can all thank Edward Louis Bernays for our desire to spend on various useless stuff we don't need!
I have the 73" model. I think it is most likely the best tv bang for the buck or very close to it. I could go for the 92 inf I reconfigured my living or I would need to tear down some drywall and reconfigure. I have a cut out in a wall that does not have the width to handle the 92". Frankly across my wall would be the best way to go if I did it. The 3D is also great. You dont use 3D all the time but for those Blu Rays etc , very nice.
You have my respect if you can power through up to 15 frames, or 1/4th of a second of input lag my friend, as DLP are supposed to have. Perhaps it's not as big a deal as they say?
I hear weed helps too.
I've had my DLP for over 2 years and play xbox live all the time and have never had any problem with any lag. Also, for those who comment about the lamps, I have never replaced a lamp and have never had a single regret for buying it.
I have the 65" for 2 years now. Flawless 1080 and best buy I've made. Puts LCD and LED to shame. Mount it about 6' and tilt at slight angle down for great viewing in chairs and couch. Also stops reflection if any by doing so. This this is light weight. Two can easily handle it whereas you'd need movers to do anything that large in LCD or LED. Great buy if you have the wall.
yes bluray sbs vertical res. but compared to what?
input lag is a result of the digital to analog and then analog to digital signal conversion not the display technology. dlp semiconductor response time is rated at 8µs (microseconds) or 125,000 times per second.
Response time has nothing to do with input lag. It is a common misconception. Someone made the analogy that response time is the officer raising his flag up high. Input lag is how long before you give the order until he receives it. It's over-simplified, but begins to get you thinking about it the right way
Unfortunately, don't see any empirical data online to back up either claim though. I think there have been improvements, at least in regards to the scaler. One can assume things have improved because I don't see any recent complaints, at least with regards to Mitsu. But that is only an assumption.
Also it's usually been CRT>Plasma>LCD>DLP for gaming, but this year everything is upside down. What is true is nothing beats a computer monitor. I'd be curious how a 50" monitor would perform. The less post-processing the better but size seems to do something to slow things in flatscreens.
IDK, if you did some measurements and posted them on AVS forums people would love it. Manufacturers rarely provide it.
