You're wise to stick with what you know. I'll be sticking with DLP since this is what I have come to appreciate. The dithering etc. doesn't bother me any more than the posts I have read about LCD panels not being able to keep up with panning scenes should bother you - in other words not at all.


Funny how we take all these problems others are seeing as gosbel! We need to see for ourselves and let our own eyes decide. I am still looking for the red chroma bug. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

Hi All...

I'm presently the owner of a Sharp XV-ZW99U LCD front

projector....I've loved it since day one...

I will be selling this unit because i want to get into

High defintion....I was thinking dlp, but after reading all

these posts in the last few weeks about rainbows, dithering

etc. etc.. I will stick to LCD.

I know LCD has drawbacks, but none that bother me..

I'm probably going to buy the HD sharp XV-DW100U ..

this is the next HD unit above mine..The price is right

and I know what to expect with LCD.

Good luck to us all..

I have a cheapie VPL-CX1 and there is no panning problems. When my HTPC was on 75 Hz, there was image tearing on panning scenes (top half of image lags behind bottom half by a millisecond) but reducing the HTPC refresh rate to 60 Hz made image perfect. LCD's main drawbacks are 1) screen door effect (XGA with MLA should help that), 2) poor blacks (newer units like the Sanyo PLV60 has 700:1 contrast) are improving with time, 3) dead pixels (unfortunate limitation of technology, even DLP has potential dead mirrors).

Grant,


You make an excellent point. I was bothered a bit by occasional rainbows with the LT-150, but I did not "see" any other "problems" that have been commonly reported.


It's one of those "your mileage may vary" things and people should bear this in mind.

FlyinFinn,


I came to the same conclusion for much the same reasons. When the bottom dropped out on the price of the DW100U (I got a new one for $4695 several months ago - and I assume because of the coming 9000)I grabbed one. I was coming off a CRT (just got tired of messing with it) and wanted an interim solution while waiting to see how the next year or two panned out.


The bottom line is that I'm happy with my choice - yeah, I probably would have preferred a native 16:9 panel - but I love the colors, performance, and build of the Sharp. I'm pretty sure you will be happy with this unit if you find a good price.

I've had the DW100U for about a year, and am very happy with it. It projects onto a 54x96 Stewart Grayhawk screen, which is a perfect compliment. I also use a Cygnus IMX processor I carried over from an earlier Sharp LCD projector, and so have no screen door effect. Good luck.

Hi all,

First to let everyone know....I didn't start this

topic to put down dlp's or any other video source..

All I was trying to say is that I'm used to the "downfalls"

of LCD and I really don't want to venture into any new "demons" or "features" at this time in my life http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif


My wife comes from the "old school"...It's hard to explain

to her that there might be something better out there..

She really doesn't care http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

However, I will try to convince her that she NEEDS hdtv http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

Ya right!
