How are LED DLPs?

by SephirothXR / August 19, 2007 8:29 AM PDT

I was considering this one, a great deal!
I've heard things like they have lower black levels than LCDs, but is it really noticeable? If the room was pitch black, maybe the human eye could notice a difference. But would this be fine for HD gaming/HD broadcasts? Is it almost as good as LCDs?

Also, is there a huge difference between Slim LEDs and LEDs?

Are Slim ones better, or they're just more $ because they're a lot slimmer?

LCDs are naturally better, but by how much? I don't have $5000 to spend on a 50" 1080p LCD, so that's why I think LED DLPs are better to buy, but are they really as good as they say they are?

Read c/net reviews. Nice tech idea, implementation less

than great picture. The current model (2nd generation) didn't address the so-so picture quality issue. A pity. If Sammy would work on the picture it would be an absolute killer product.

Just asking...
by Kingp1n / August 20, 2007 11:08 PM PDT

have either of you actually seen the LED DLP from Samsung in action? And not in a electronics store. Because I run HD from my DISH box, PS3 (games and movies), and Toshiba HD-DVD movies, and it all look fantastic.

Light output
by motorheadache95 / August 30, 2007 8:52 AM PDT

In the C-Net review, they lowered the light output to 40ftl. Does anyone know exactly how they did this? Black is to light on this thing with it's full light output, and these sets have a software bug that doesn't allow you to close the aperture to cut the light level in half. Any ideas?

And yes I own is now 15 months old and love it Toshiba 72HM195 I paid $4600 with stand now I see them on sale for a tad over $2000 with stand. 1080I picture is outstanding and 1080P with my new blue ray player is razor sharp 70 m.m. film quality The only issue I have had was lamp blew after 4 months contactad Toshiba and was told lamp was factory defective sent a updated lamp in two day and that was a year ago and still blazing brite I was also given an extra year warrenty on lamp A replacement lamp is $199 and takes two minutes to replace yourself. a 72" screen at 8ft. is like being in the sweet spot in a movie theater I think $2000 for a theater size screen is a cool deal steweee
