I have the 61" Samsung LED DLP and love it. Great picture, also very bright, and spot on color. Don't pay attention to the possible negetive comments that are bound to come. I am giving you first hand opinions, not going by what I have read alone.

Stewee...haven't you learned??

Stewee, I have a rule of thumb: Once I purchase a large electronics device, like a TV, I try not obsess over forums to see if I can get members approval for what I just bought. For a period of time, I try to stay away from forums, because sooner or later I'll come across posts that are negative. Enjoy your Toshiba DLP. You like it and that's what counts. There are posters in this forum that love Vizio TVs and other who hate them. Same goes for Toshiba, Panasonic, Sony, etc. I'd bet that there aren't two members here who evaluate TVs the same. So, stop reading negative posts here and enjoy your crummy Toshiba and your crummy Cadillac Happy

I am still waiting...(Sony, what is holding you back?)
by kingsclear / August 31, 2007 3:10 PM PDT

I am still waiting for the arrival of the L.E.D.-powered SXRD sets from Sony as shown at the 2006 CES. But I am worried with the story recently in the news that RPTVs will disappear by 2011. The XBR5 SXRD with the 2.5 ms pixel response time, the best color gamut in the consumer industry, a dynamic contrast ratio that can be tweaked to over 14,000:1 using a test DVD, and the virtually seamless pixel density is the category killer. The Samsung L.E.D. sets are fantastic but even with the non-L.E.D. lighting the XBR5 SXRD has it beaten hands down.

DLP (standard) vs DLP (LED)?
by RichieVega / December 7, 2007 5:24 AM PST

Well, when it was time for me to replace and upgrade my 36" Phillips tube TV, I did alot of research on the technologies out there at the time, it was a year ago, and then took myself to the stores.

I went to CircuitCity, BestBuy, CompUSA, PC Richards, and even Sears, not so much to do a price comparison, which came in very handy in the end, but to take a look at the images and compare the regular tube TV (CRT), Plasmas, LCDs and DLPs (standard vs LED).

What I discovered in my search was that the "standard" DLP gave me the finest, most "natural" image without any "little blocks" which could be visable up close to the unit.

One of the reasons I didn't choose the LCD nor plasmas was that they still showed the little square in the image up close, where as the DLP didn't.

I ended up choosing the Samsung WideScreen HDTV DLP without the LED, I found it to give the best image overall and the most "natural" image.

Even my friends who have Plamas and LCD TV's come over and are dumbfounded by the image's fluidity, no breakup, nor pixelation.

I have to also state that I ended up switching from Satellite TV receiption (Direct TV) to HDTV Cable reception, for it gave me a better image than Satellite. That's something to also consider, that you must get the HD service from your cable provider, otherwise it won't matter what tv you get it will still look sub-par.

For clear information on the differences on what you are looking for check out this link:
This is a pretty cool place to start.

Good Luck!

PS, I have not regretted my choice, for the price, features and image/sound and options, I am extremely happy with the Standard, and can't consider being locked into a "fixed" number of pixels on the screen as I had been on a CRT, which is what you end up getting in an LED DLP/LCD/Plasma after all, but not with the Standard, for there are no pixels to see, just a fluid like image! Flawless.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
