I posted something similar in the Panasonic thread, but figured I might as well share here too:
A few months ago I was in the market for a new TV, and did nothing but research for hours and hours. I decided to go with the Panasonic ST30 after reading nothing but great reviews about it. However, I have very recently been hit with this desire to own a Mitsubishi DLP - and have specifically been looking at the wd-73738 and wd-73740. When I was originally doing my research, I got hooked in to all the "PQ" hype and that was the only thing I paid attention to. I did not think about having a larger screen size, or the differences between the plasma and DLP picture themselves.
(May be playing with fire here, but) while I do believe that the actual picture quality of the ST30 is superior to that of the DLP, there are other reasons for me wanting to change; realistically, I will not own a projector anytime in the near future (within 5 years). Because of that fact, I feel like the DLP will deliver a more of a "theater" experience than my Panny will. The size is obviously bigger, and I have an appreciation for that "soft" look that DLPs are known for.
I am sharing this nonsense because I was wondering if anybody in this thread has an opinions of how to go about making the change, or any general opinions at all. Specifically, I was wondering if anybody can point me in the direction of somewhere to offer my ST30 as trade for the Mitsubishi...or if anyone that currently owns a DLP, feel free to PM me! (FWIW, I am located in South Florida).
