I to was confused on the technology when I was looking at my purchase. I was sold on DLP based on the Technology and what it did compared to LCD. DLP has richer blacks and deeper colors is what I was told. I never saw to big of a difference, I had a problem with DLP because it couldn't create a bright picture. Everything had a dark tone to it. (at least at the time of Purchase.) I ended up picking LCD because of the brighter Screen and the color contrast. Sony KDS-60XS955 is what I bought.
You will hear about screen door effect if you research deep enough. If you get up on the screen of your LCD projection you will see little squares. But I soon found out that they are almost every TV. I don't know what your budget is, so I can only suggest what I would buy if I was in the market for a new TV and the would be the XBR1 projection series from Sony. Great looking TV with a even more stellar picture.
I am in the market for a rear projection tv, 42" to 60" range. I ve done a lot of reading and research, but I can't seem to find a head-to-head comparison of lcd rear projection vs dlp rear projection, other than better black levels on the dlp's and fewer moving parts on the lcd's. Could someone please give me a better idea of the pro's and con's of the two technologies? Thanks!!
