LCD vs. DLP


Recommended Posts

I was wondering which is better. I know DLP is more new and Sony has LCDs and they show good. But I'm not sure which one to get.

LCD Projo:

1. No rainbow effect

2. No issues with video games and control delays

3. Less moving parts so less can break

DLP:

1. Generally, a brighter picture

2. No screen door effect

I'm a little out of it right now to remember everything, but those are key points to consider.

Well DLP is cheaper and is considered to last longer, because of the fact, that if the bulb dies, is easy to replace it, just by a new one and replace it, but LCDs are supposed to be a sharper crispier image, and they last around 60-70k hours, i think. If you got the money for an LCD go for it, but if your prefer a big screen for cheaper, then go for the DLPs..

He's talking about LCD Projection, not Flat Panel LCD, as far as I can tell.

The bulb has to be dimmed a bit as to protect the LCD panels from heat damage.

I have a DLP tv and I saw some LCD tvs and I noticed they show different. Thats why i asked the question because I thought I made the wrong choice.

In most general consumer TV units, the color output should be similar between the two technologies.

When I bought the Tv the guy said that DLP generates more color. Something like 6 million. I can't remember.

Well what did you choose? Many people are baised towards one technology while I feel there are good units from both camps. You may not have made such a bad choice.

That TV is fine. It's cheaper and brighter then most LCD TV's you would of found.

I personally find DLP to be superior when compared to LCD, but if you read comparison articles around the web you'll find that there is no "better" answer as it's all a matter of opinion

Noone can directly tell you LCD>DLP or DLP>LCD

Your choice is fine, not point in worrying

Also every tv will look different..even if you compare 2 CRT's side by side the picture won't be exactly the same.

If your happy with the tv there is no point in thinking you could of done better, etc

That's actually a pretty nice set man. We have the xxHM95's at work and had th xxHM84's last year. The sets can actually out perform the Samsungs with certain images. I think you'll be happy.

The BB website says its HD2+, but I'm pretty sure that set is actually HD4.

edit: Before I forget, try not to use the buttons on the front panel too often. They tend to break easily. Just stick with the remote. Aklso, make sure to always power it down properly and don't just unplug it or turn off a powerstrip. The sets go through a cooling down process when turned off. If that process isn't allowed to trigger, you'll lose lifespan on the unit.
