Hey folks, does anyone out there have one of these units yet. I was in BB and the color and picture quality is amazing over regular projection tv.

I am heavily considering buying one, because I can get it for under 3000.00.

Any information regarding the pros/cons of DLP, Samsung or alternatives is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Rick,

Please look at my response to your post on the HomeTheaterSpot as I have written an extended answer there as well as a review.

Basically, for all of the Home Theater Forum members, this set comes out extremely well after calibration. In fact, i was surprised at the black level that could be achieved from this DLP. For many situations, such as a high ambient light room, or a display that is going to have a lot of video games played on it, this set is very good.

Scaling is a problem as there were artifacts. Color decoder can be made quite accurate, gamma, black enhancement, grayscale, ect...can all be adjusted to achieve a very accurate picture.

I see these sets definitely getting better, but a good start in the direction of using DLP technology. Plus there is less maintenance than a CRT, which could be a plus.

Regards,
