I went to see a demo of the Sim HT200 the other day and need some advice before taking the leap.

Using an RGB input from a regular dvd player, I see jagged edges on object contour. The distributor suggested, buying an external scaler to smooth out the contour. My question is : Will the HT250 reduce this problem without needing an external scaler ? Am I better off buying the HT200 + Scaler or HT250 as it is ? Knowing that I have an offer for the HT200(slightly used) that is around 2200 $USD less than the HT250 ! What would be your choice ?

If the demo you saw was for the HT200 (no "DM" suffix), then try to arrange a demo of the HT200DM before making a decision. The "DM" is Sim2/Seleco's new DVD optimized projector, with an 848 x 480 chip mode and a higher refresh rate than the HT200 and HT250 (when operating in the DVD/16:9 mode).


If you use it with a good progressive output DVD player, then the projector operates without any line doubling or scaling, which might help reduce those artifacts you're seeing.

I agree, look into the DM. It should be 1k less than the 250, and is a significant step up from the 200 with the new color wheel.


It is perfect for DVD, but if most of your viewing is HDTV, I would look elsewhere...perhaps the new Sharp.


Cheers,


Keith
