    I am looking to buy a 50-52in DLP.

    I am looking to spend between $1000 - $1600.

    It is to be used mainly for HDTV - HD-DVR from Charter via DVI-HDMI connection, with maybe some DVD Movie playback.

    I was looking at Samsung, Panasonic and Mitsubishi. However I do not know which is known for reliability and or the best picture quality/features.

    Any feedback/help would be welcome.


    Thanks.

    I highly recommend the Samsung HL-S5087W. It was utterly stunning in the stores, as compared to all its contemporaries. My research gave Samsung great marks in the DLP realm. In the flesh, in my living room, it's lived up to all my expectations.

    Well, that's great. But not a DLP. And not 1080p either.

    I know, It eneded up looking better on compaired to the dlp on directtv hd next to each other.

    I would have picked a mitz dlp but there is no place in town that has a 52in.

    And I will not use the 1080p with cable tv.

    I got the Samsung HL-S5086W 720P DLP about a month ago and love it. It should be readily available in your price range. I am using it for a balance between SD/HD cable through TWC, SD-DVDs and Xbox360 gaming. Performs flawlessly with all.

    Good, it was a ease to setup.

    I have gotten a HD DVR box for it and it looks great.

    It does a good job of making normal cabel watch-able as well.


    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Edit, I see that you ment the samsung, well the sony is what I was refering to.
