Is there anywhere that lists the advantages and disadvantages of each type of projector ?


Or maybe someone here knows... http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

I'm most interested in: burn in issues, black levels, contrast, ease of use, maintanance, overall pic quality, and anything else deemed important.


I've been looking at the Sony VW10HT, the Toshiba MT7,

And I've read about the Yamaha DPX-1... but haven't seen that one yet.....

Also, other suggestions are welcome,,,, about $7000 max....


Thanks

Shelly

Hi Shelly,


This group on the forum and the CRT group have zillions of postings on this subject. My suggestion would be to use the pop-up to show articles from the last 30 days, and just read through them. Then, do the same thing on the CRT group. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif


You should definitely check out the Sharp 9000 projector. Street price can be had for around your price range if you look around. It has a 16x9 DLP element which is nice if you're planning to watch a lot of widescreen.

Hi Shelly,


I agree with JustMike. There is a great deal already written in both forums that address the relative strengths and weaknesses of each technology.


With respect to CRT your two largest considerations that might affect your choice are ambient room light and screen size. If you can achieve light control and are planning a screen size of up to 106" (8.8ft) diagonal then CRT can be a superb choice. I won't go into black level/picture quality here because that subject has been beaten to death (search the forum for info). Here is just one thread:

On the CRT side you should take a close look at the NEC XG110LC. They available on the used market with low hours from reputable sources for around $4,000.00


Good luck.

Also in terms of CRT, remember that the machine will be considerably larger than DLP or LCD
