    I am currently in the market for a new big-screen TV (my Mitsubishi rear proj died last Summer)... previously I had been really sold on the picture on DLP's but I recently went to a Best Buy and the Sony LCD's looked wayyy more impressive, as did the Lcos display. Isn't the latest
    generation chip out on DLP's ? Does Sony simply tweak their brightness & color to make the display look better than the Samsung DLP's?? I had always thought DLP was the superior technology.... would like some input/guidance here... Thanks!

    Because all current DLP models use sequential red, green, and blue imaging off of a single display element, some people notice color fringing and some people even get a headache watching it. Therefore LCD, almost all of whose models use three display elements, despite the lesser black to white range and not so deep blacks, still has a good portion of the consumer market.

    In order to get a good comparison, you would need to bring your AVIA or Video Essentials test disk right to the store and start tinkering with the brightness, contrast, etc.

    Absolutely! You can't compare sets that aren't calibrated!
