Dirty little secret of rear projection DLP

 

Visually the display of 1080i/p sources is exceptional (though I have not been able to test how well it actually performs the upconversion for non-1080p sources, or whether or not all image data is displayed for 1080p).

Beautiful design ; menu design/interface ; upconversion of 480i/p, 720p, and 1080i to 1080p ; 2 HDMI interfaces

Concave display of non-16x9 images ; movie mode (3:2 pull down) only works with 480i sources ; no direct access to many functions (mostly menu driven) ; remote

Great Picture ! Awesome sound !

 

(Edited November 30th by inbb2b) After months of research I narrowed my choice to the Samsung HL series over Toshiba HDM196X even though Consumer Reports ranked the Toshiba #1 & #2.

Sharpness of picture, SRS surround sound, cablecard capability, multiple HDMI inputs. Ease of setup.

None, other than features I can't use with my cable box, PIP and TV Guide

Samsug HL-S5688W

 

Overall we have been very pleased with this TV.

The picture is excellent when watching HD TV or DVDs

The TV has a high pitched ringing when the TV is off.
