i am a new member.
i was originally looking at LCD/DLP rear projection TV's - Hitachi, Sony, Samsung. Then ruled out LCD because of the picture quality.
Then thought about projectors at the same price points and the larger image i would have.
This forum has been/is a fanatastic source of info !!!! thank you for your efforts.
Onto my question -
Hello guitarman, i really appreciated your efforts of providing screen shots of the H30. There is also another follow who compared the HT1000 and the H56 with screen shots provided.
The H30 and H56 screens shots i viewed looked fantastic ... however, when i veiwed an H56 at the dealer, the images i saw where no where near the WOW of the screen shots on this forum. The H56 was dull, lacked snap, dark - nothing that approaches the H30 screen shots veiwed here.
Is there something with the exposre of these screen shots that makes the images look better than the real thing? The difference between what i see at the dealer and what i view here is dramatic - to the point where the H56 is a waist of money. What's wrong?
I also saw the Sony HS20 - it was sharp and smooth - but an awful picture in every other measure
After seeing the H56 in person, i am back to looking at rear projection CRT or DLP tv's. The CRT tv's are still looking the best to me.
please let me know if i am missing something.
i was about to buy the H30, then remembered the H56 i saw and posted this reply/question.
thanks very much
