I've been excited about the new Samsung HLN series of DLP televisions. But I wanted to check out the competition using similar technology. I went to a local Andersons TV and asked about seeing a unit. They had none. The saleman said Mitsubishi and Sony considered DLP to be a failure because of too many returns. He also said that when he went to DLP training class, they gave everybody a previously-working DLP chip as hand outs. They had LOTS of them. Ok, so one salesman could be wrong. I went to Good Guys (my favorite among the chains), but I think I got some young/clueless sales guy. They had zero DLP units on the floor, but he thought a new Mitsubishi would be available in about a month. But he doubted they would even put it on the sales floor. This guy then pointed out a Toshiba unit (which looked very nice), but a few minutes later, confided in me that they had a lot of returns on Toshiba. I asked if they compensated for having sold a lot of Toshiba units. He looked at me confused. (Ok. If all HDTV have a 1% failure rate, but you sell 300 Mitsu's and 1000 Toshiba's, you will see 3 Mitsu returns and 10 Toshiba returns. More Toshiba's WERE returned, but thats because more were sold. The failure rate is the same, but this concept confused this guy.) Now I went to a nearby Circuit City to see what they had. Not a single DLP unit on the floor. So I'm beginning to wonder why have all the DLP units disappeared? Yes, they cost almost twice as much as some very good looking Toshiba, Sony and Mitsu televisions. Could that be why they are not longer being stocked?
