    I'm always reading about new displays and nature of each display technology, but my purchase keeps getting pushed back by various issues (space, economics, on-going software spending).

    At this point, I'm starting to think I should just wait for the 1080p DLP/LCD sets that are bound to surface in a few years (?).

    Specifically, I'm talking about a ~50" stand-based display.

    Well, it's seems like the DLPs aren't that far off...

    This would be real nice, but not exactly commercial yet.

    ------------------------------------------------
    TI follows the success of HD2 chip with 3 new chips in 2004:
    -HD3 is a new 720p chip designed for low-cost high volume production
    -HD2+ is a new 720p chip with higher contrast and black levels
    -xHD3 is a new 1080p chip

    Samsung 1080p 61” Model
    $6000-$6500?
    September ?

    I am not sure when exactly but I would say in the next year or so.

    I do know that there are some really nice HD2+ RPTV coming out that will have built in cable cards (so you don't have to use your digital cable box anymore) and HD tuners.

    I would LOVE to see the new Infocus ScreenPlay 61 DLP some time. With an MRSP of around $10,000 though if these newer chipsets from T1 keep on coming out in a short period of time maybe these sets will drop in price rather quickly.

    Technically, this is difficult to describe.

    xHD3 is not really as describable using pixel elements. It is not what you would call a "native" 1080p chip, since the xHD3 is the diamond array that shifts half a pixel back and forth, and is said to be capable of resolving some 1080p patterns. But it is not a 1080p chip in the sense that the HD2 chips *are* 720 chips.
