I don't know honestly, as I haven't owned one personally. However, the general consensus here seems to be that the Samsung DLP tvs are sub par compared to the competition. Hopefully Grant or someone else that has owned a Samsung DLP will post up.

Sub Par? Samsung? lol.
Shit, just go sit in a store and take a look at them compared to the other dlp's.
I have the 56' slim/thing dlp model, and the ONLY one that looked better than it did (of all the dlp's that were currently on the floor), was the samsung model that used led's. There wasn't much of a difference, but just enough to see that it wasn't you're standard bulb dlp.
I lov emine to death and can get lost just staring at it on some hd content.

If you look over on avsforums, most note that there are still geometry issues present on the "slim-design" models. They also had issues with rainbow effects from the color wheel.

That said, I've just never found a Samsung DLP that has impressed me, at any price level.

I do like their LCD's and Plasmas for the most part though. Just my $.02 though.

We've had it for close to 3 years now, you'd figure I would have done it long ago. Maybe some day.


It appears when it comes to DLP, they are sub par. I own an LCD, and will most likely never buy another brand other than Samsung.

Mine looked great out of the box, and still does.
Now comparing DLP's to LCDs and Plasmas is apples and oranges.
What model DLP is he referring to? it'd be shitty to steer someone away due to problems with a completely different model.

Do more research on the model online, don't take the word of one or two dfwstangers. You know they have to have the absolute best with their $200k salaries and armory full of guns.
