It's too early to decide for sure. I'd certainly like to keep the set but the RBE was nasty in high contrast scenes in Gladiator. This is really one of those "see it for yourself things". My wife didn't see one rainbow the entire time and couldn't be happier.
I guess to sum up my RBE experience (I don't want to rag on the set over and over when any DLP would have done this)
1. If this is your first DLP HDTV you aren't going to be able to tell if you see RBE in a store. I have spent countless hours in stores looking for RBE and never seeing it.
You're going to have to buy or hang out at a friend's house to know if you see RBE for sure.
2. If you see RBE and that has stopped you from buying DLP before, this TV is NOT for you. Either wait for a color-wheel free LED set or buy LCOS/D-ILA, plasma, or LCD
3. RBE was only noticable in high contrast scenes (basically dark scenes with white light) found in movies. Haven't noticed it on TV or DVDs of TV shows
4. If you see RBE, it's a personal call to decide whether or not it's too annoying. I haven't made up my mind at this point.
