What I'm noticing is that the consumer has grown very demanding that lines be straight and the opticals be perfect without any regard to the technology or design limits. RPTV was always a compromise as well as DLP for these areas. Maybe the consumer has spoken and killed these product lines?
I'm just now starting to shop for an HDTV. I was leaning towards a DLP as they seem to be the best value for an HDTV, bigger screen sizes and lower costs when compared to an LCD or plasma of the same size.
I used to see them all the time at Wal-Mart, Best-Buy, Newegg.com ,etc. But now they don't seem to be available as they had been in the past. I run into the Mitsubishi DLP models most of the time which I don't think match the quality of the Samsung models.
Is Samsung lowering the supply of their DLP TVs?
