did u find any issues with lcd?
LCD uses three panels all trying to project a single image by layering the primary colors on top of each other which can result in an image that's not as sharp and limited to the rgb spectrum...dlp have a wider color gamut and unlike the LCD panels which are organic and constantly breaking down in chemical composition. A SDLP won't have color shift problems unless there's a failure in the color wheel which can be replaced. Many LCD machines also give the effect of looking through a screen door although Ive read they have improved them a lot in recent years ( also true with dlp).
Dlps are sharper in general than most LCD counterparts.
The fact is a small portion of people are actually bothered by and can see rainbows when sitting the correct minimum distance from any given screen size if your sitting too close and find you have to dart your hwad back and forth and are constantly darting your eyes across the screen to focus on what's going on than you are more likely to see and be bothered by rainbows. This is also why there is so little mention of them in the rear projection world where the screen is smaller.. but even then their are those that seem to obsess about them and are then bothered by them and those that choose just to ignore them and eventually don't even notice them anymore... this is sometimes a subconscious decision depending one a persons personality... Its one of those things you just have to see for yourself now that your aware of them.
I myself have never had a guest complain of seek g them and have installed 5 dlp systems for friends who have seen my setup and wanted one of their own.
