First, be sure to have a high quality S-Video cable with you. Monster 3, BetterCables, whatever, but it should be oxygen free, shielded...blah blah blah. I demoed an LP340 with a cheapie s-video cabled borrowed from a Proxima (it was included with it). I saw every type of video flaw including rainbow, dot crawl, and whatever else makes you sick to watch a movie. When I purchased the 340, I also bought a high-end cable. The rainbow was still there (greatly reduced and not as distracting) but the other flaws were gone.
Now, to see the rainbow, watch the first scene (the battle scene) in Gladiator. Even the Seleco produces rainbows for me on this one. The bright fireballs against the dark forest is the perfect scenario.
Finally, if you do go with the 340, you may want to experiment with an FLD filter to correct the colors. I paid $30 for a high quality Tiffen filter from a local camera shop.
