Dlp= flashing rainbow effect in dark scenes. Even all black screen.
Plasma=no rainbow effect in dark scenes, wont show the effect on a all black screen, but shows flashes with bright scenes especially with alot of white in them. It's a constant color flashing type effect, no 'trailing'.
The issue that I'm talking about is a trailing effect, greenish trails on bright moving objects on a dark background. I see greenish comet trails.
And to the last couple posts, I think the issue was the notion that if you see these artifacts then maybe you have some type of eye disorder. My point was simply that if all 3 people who viewed my display could easily detect the artifact, then it was unlikely that all 3 had some eye disorder that effects 6% of the population. It's much more likely that it's just how that display renders that content.
I personally think that many people are afraid to game on plasmas, and that's where I see it the most. In fact, though I can see it on content like Sin City... I might not have noticed it had it not jumped out at me playing Gears of War.
I certainly don't expect for everyone to see the artifact, and heck I'm glad they don't. I'm just hoping the new Pioneers took care of this because I think plasma is the best technology overall. So... someone with a new Pioneer run that disk please...
