Has a great picture for a 720p set, which is all you really need at this size. 42 is the smallest that you can really benefit from 1080p at. One of the cheaptest ways to go HD. don't waste the money on plasma/lcd if you don't absolutly need to hang it...

Excellent deal, and a real eye opener compared to others that are twice as expensive.

Excellent deal, and a real eye opener compared to others that are twice as expensive. Don't let people tell you that you won't like DLP. I originally wanted an LCD or plasma, but i'm DEFINATELY happy!

so far... none...

Black Grass: It's definitely noticeable when the picture is black.

Black grass was a non-issue. Rainbow effect was not noticeable. Lots of inputs.

Not being able to achieve 1:1 pixel mapping was a disappointment.

Excellent picture; Poor service

 

Great picture. Excellent price

Lamp died after three months. Phone service center less than responsive.
