I'm getting complaints from my family about my 5 year old Samsung HLN series DLP 46 inch...it's somewhat dim in the brightly lit room with lots of windows during the day where it is located, and also since it's set fairly high up in an armoire, the vertical viewing angle is an issue as the picture degrades if you watch it while sitting on the ground for example. The bulb is new.
My research tells me to go LCD for the brightest pictures, with a matte screen. I already have another room that is a dedicated home theater, this TV is used for casual watching HDTV and occasional DVDs but anything technical I can watch in the home theater.
I want to keep the cost below $1500, and it needs to be 46 inches.
Is this chicken what I have, or is this fish?
