I keep seeing this banner ad on websites with the incredible claim that (paraphrasing) "9 out of 10 people prefer LCD over other projector technologies".
Having had both an LCD and DLP, I find this claim beyond absurd, there's simply no comparison between the image of my LCD and DLP projectors I had, not only was the LCD's image much worst (especially the contrast ratio), but after about 2 years a permanent yellow stain was burnt into my LCD projector, while my DLP projector's image looks exactly the same after 7 years of daily use.
I have to admit I haven't seen any recent LCD, but I doubt either that the contrast ratio has improved over DLP or that the yellowing of the LCD panels after only 1-2 years no longer occurs. The yellowing issue alone is enough to make me avoid LCD as I tend to keep my projectors for as long as possible which is why I still use the same DLP after 7 years. I'd like to see what an LCD looks like after 7 years of daily use, but I doubt it would be enjoyable by how bad the yellow stain would get in that time.
Is that claim in the ad completely fabricated or was the poll done when only 1x DLP projectors existed? Even if they said 50% prefer LCD I'd be skeptical, but 9 out of 10 seems like a complete fabrication.
