I just went to HiFi Buy’s (Tweeter) and saw the new Philips LCOS, model 55PL9773, and the Samsung 56’s DLP, model HLN567W. I have been waiting some time for the LCOS to come out as I was torn as to which set to buy. Like many have commented on the forums I have been bouncing around between the Samsung and the Sony Grand Wega, model KF-50WE610. Reading the forums it sounded like most folks were leaning toward the Samsung but I thought the Sony gave a better picture, at least in the setups I have seen. Anyway, reading everything being said in the forums I was expecting to be blown away by the LCOS. Overall I felt that the picture on the Philips was not as sharp as the Samsung’s. I felt the colors were also muted on the Philips and overall the Samsung produced crisper more vibrant tone/colors. The Philips did seem to have a much larger viewing angle. I think the separation between the two is very small and either one would be a winner--but then again I'm looking for the best! Given the recent troubles/delays with the Philips I wonder if I should steer clear until all the bugs are worked out; any opinions on this? To tell the truth, I had been disappointed in the 50 inch Samsung DLP, model HLM507W, as compared to the 43 inch, model HLM437W. The picture on the larger Samsung looked like it was not as sharp (focus wise) as compared to the smaller one and I had compared them at multiple stores as I felt it might have been a matter of setup. The Samsung I saw today was the 56 inch model HLN567W and it looked nicer then the HLM507W by a good bit. I had read on some forum that the 56 inch model was not going to be sold here in the USA. Anyone know the differences between these two Samsung DLP’s? The comparison chart on the Samsung USA website is not much help. While I was at the store the sales man said they had the 61 inch Samsung in also, I’m guessing the HLM617W, and he could get it out by this Sunday if I wanted to see it. Anyone seen the bigger 61 inch Samsung? Any comments on it compared to the smaller Samsung or the Philips? Let me know as I would like a nice big Christmas gift to myself! Also, anyone with any comments on the 60 inch Grand Wega XBR, model KDF-60XBR950 or the RCA Scenium HDLP61W151? I haven’t been able to view that set yet either? To many models to choose from... making the decision is driving me crazy! Thanks for any help I might get.
