Have you finally decided on which one to go with ? I had signed up for a 62525 but was having second thoughts.
I felt that the picture did not look bright at the store (Best Buy) compared to other DLPs or LCDs. They did not have a samsung for me to compare. I like Samsung TVs and have heard that Mits makes the best Projections. I got to make up my mind in the next couple weeks.
I also read today that both Mits and Samsung are going to come with a 1080p model very soon. Not sure if it is worth the wait and the higher price. I am sure it should be close to 5K (a 2K margin over the 720p)
My questions on the 62525 and the 6167s are
1) do you notice a fan noise in either of them ?
2) Is the picture bright ?
3) how do they handle regular cable and regular TV screens
I hate to open an old topic, but I'm on the edge and don't know which way to jump.
I've been out looking at ~61 inch screens. I found that the DLP's had better images (in general) than LCD's. I spend a lot of time looking at the Samsung HL-P6163 and HL-R6167 and the Mitsubishi WD-62327 and WD-62725 (might have been WD-62525). Here's what I saw:
Mit: better detail (esp. on people's faces), but colors seemed over the top (greens too green, etc), even when the rep tried to adjust it. Bad glare, but I guess that screen can come off (I'm not sure that I want to take it off with three year old running around the house).
Sam: less detail, but colors looked real. No glare.
Glare will be an issue due to the location and I would like two digital inputs (perf HDMI) to the TV (1 for DVD player and 1 HD sat.) I don't need the HD receiver or cable card in the TV. Technically, that would lead me to the Sam HL-P6163. But I really like the detail of the Mit's.
Will I be able to get the colors ''right'' on the Mit?
Is there an non-glare cover to protect the screen?
Is there a good solution to hooking up two digital sources to a TV with only 1 HDMI?
Is there another unit out there that would fit my needs better than these?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
