DLP changes from 5 years ago (3D) just hit LCD and plasma 2 years ago. PDP changes are because of faults from the beginning, such as trails and burn in, among others. LCD is constantly upping the screen refresh to try to get a fast enough response time for motion. This in technologies that are at least 20 years older than DLP (Plasma 1964, LCD 1964, DLP 1987). Perhaps without DLP's competition, they wouldn't have to make those changes.
You're right about the picture looking the same from DLP TV to DLP TV. The three DLPs owned by family members look the same as mine. All are under 5 deltaE calibrated to SMPTE standards, and look just as accurate (except my son's TV is bigger, some sort of compensation complex I fear
). They don't look all different colors like the TVs I see lined up at Best Buy, or all skewed like the in-law's Kuro (talk about not knowing anything except street rep.).
And if you want to talk SSE, don't forget SDE (screen door effect) in every plasma and LCD. DLP pixels have a smaller gap between them than plasma or LCD (Over 90% "fill factor", vs around 70%) and don't suffer from it.
All TVs have their advantages / disadvantages for the consumer to weigh. I'll take the occasional SSE (hockey game?) over permanent SDE anytime.
You are perfectly welcome to plasma, it has it's place, and I might even own one for the bedroom if the price was more reasonable to me. One weighs the options and buys accordingly.
For my situation DLP is closest to perfect in what features take priority in my living room. Plasma would be unwatchable for me due to the small screen size, SDE, slow pixel response and 3D ghosting. Pretty much the same goes for LCD. But I don't expect people to just take my word for it.
An example from the 3D Tech Talk thread:

Ghosting/Crosstalk is even evident in bright screens. Especially noticable in dark scenes. I've tried everything from adjusting the Perspective to changing the Contrast and Brightness. Still too severe to enjoy 3D viewing. I sit approximately 7-8 feet from the display.
I've read everywhere that these TV's hardly have any crosstalk issues. What gives? Thanks in advance!

I can live with DLPs faults (the real
ones at least). I just tire from the FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt) sown by some people.
