    I'm debating about the InFocus N76 projector and a 1080p capable DLP television.

    I like the idea of a projector because I can have a large viewing canvas, but the thought of a DLP set intrigues me because I can get a true 1080p set.

    Are there any 70" DLP sets that are great quality sets that any of you forum members would recommend?

    Any opinions on the newer Toshiba large sets?

    I will be mostly watching TV and DVDs with Xbox 360 and PS3 playing.

    Thanks in advance,
    Jay

    My first choices for 70" Rear Projection would be the JVC HD-70FH97 or HD-70FN97. These 1080p LCoS sets offer far superior picture quality to any DLP on the market, in my opinion. Sony SXRD and JVC D-ILA are the only major manufacturers currently producing LCoS sets.

    Do these televisions have burn-in problems like plasmas or CRTs?

    LCoS sets do not suffer burn-in. Some LCoS sets exhibit “image retention”, but it goes away in an hour or so. [​IMG]

    About three weeks ago, I bought the Toshiba 72MX195 72" DLP set. So far, this set is performing well. I have Comcast cable so currently, I can only watch the HD channels in 720p. They look incredible. I was originally looking for a plasma but when I saw this set, I was impressed. I was worried about off angle viewing, but didn't see it as a problem after viewing this set. It also looks fine during the day when there is more light. I have it in the basement, but we have two windows near it and they throw a lot of light. It hasn't been a problem though.

    Another benefit was that HH Gregg had these sets on sale for $3999 which is about $800 off. The salesman told me they are clearing these models out. I'm not sure what the replacement models will be, but this one was impressive.

    I also have been interested in a LARGE screen I can not do a fount projector become of windows and doors.
    I have been looking at the Mitsubishi WD-73727. It is a 73” and from what I have seen looks good does anyone know anything about them?
    Thanks in advance.
