I'm a big fan of DLP, but that's just not true.
I own one and haven't been able to be convinced to upgrade by something for something far more expensive with better contrast, but to say it's an unqualified "the best", period, is just not true.
It's the best in 3D, absolutely.
It's amongst the best in ANSI contrast, (depending on the model), but the question about how much that matters vs on/off is debatable.
It's the best in motion resolution, yes, that too. (this is what makes it the best for 3D as well, because of triple flash, so 3x repeats per frame per eye, with no cross talk).
But without FI the added sharpness conferred by having zero pixel transition times only makes judder more
obvious, not less.
Is it the best in terms of lumens? No, Epson beats it, easily.
Also it's hardly appropriate to compare movie theater DCI projectors, which are 3-chip designs so no rainbow effect.
Rainbows don't bother me, but they do bother a number of people so to say DLP is the best is just wrong. And that's not even getting to the contrast. It's flat out the worst
in terms of on/off, or close to (maybe some dirt cheap LCDs have worse contrast).
Most popular != "the best".
