    Well, that was a mighty fine answer. It is true that D-ILA is more accurately called LCOS, but for some reason JVC chose to call its version of LCOS technology D-ILA. Here is a better explanation of LCOS from Projector Central.

    Sony's very expensive ($30,000 with lens) Qualia front projector is a varient of LCOS also. I highly recommend that you visit the AVS Forum for more vivid discussions of D-ILA.

    Do all LCOS sets use a 3 chip design like the JVC? Or do some use a color wheel like most DLPs do?

    All LCOS front projectors I'm aware of use three chips, but I believe most/all LCOS RPTV's are one chip.

    I was referring to the RPTVs (is Philips the only other one?).

    Stephen,

    The Philips sets are a single chip design. They use a spinning prism instead of a color wheel, but its not any better at reducing rainbow. I would go single chip HD2+ DLP before this Philips implementation of LCOS. Against the 3-chip HD-ILA from JVC it gets a little harder to chose.

    I bought the 61" JVC rear-projection DILA TV last weekend, although I will be waiting for about a week and a half yet until delivery. I personally find this to be a very impressive set...

    I have a friend looking at new digital displays and I'm helping him out as much as he'll let me. He likes the Samsung Tantus line of DLPs and would probably go w/ one of the previous model years for DCDi deinterlacing (dropped on the new models). The idea of a three chip display at this price is intriguing to both of us, but i think we're going to wait awhile and see how reports come in on the JVC.

    thx chris!

    andrew, please let me know your thoughts once you've played with it. you'll be the only person i know who actually owns one!

    stephen (or anyone else) - any ideas why samsung dropped the dcdi chip? i noticed that too some time ago and was surprised. that seemed like such a great feature i don't get why samsung would drop it.
