i'd still go with the dlp projector... right now i have a lcd projector and it's MUCH better than any small screened lcd or plasma (yes when a projector is in question, 48" is tiny) once my lcd projector get's messed up i'm going to switch to a dlp
actually for it's small size and easy transport.. i'd probably pick this
Heh, I'm not going CRT. My current TV has meters from various games burned into all four corners and that's my prime motivation right now - a burn-inless existence. So, I guess DLP is it, huh? You may have convinced me on the TV over the projector/screen. Originally I'd just been considering that the TV is a projector and screen in a fixed position, so why not get the projector and screen that you can move? But the noisy fan, that is a serious problem for me, I am a sound nerd.
LCD TVs also have an issue with burn-in. I've seen a station logo burned-in to the screen of a Mitsubishi 52" LCD television.
I highly recommend a DLP set -- Mitsubishi makes some amazing 1080P ones. I've done a lot of research into the different technologies and this is what I recommend.
If you're leaning towads a projector then I'd go with DLP, but I'd get one that has a 2x speed color wheel or even dual wheels. This will eliminate the "rainbow effect" that plagues some DLP projectors. I know InFocus sells one.
TDINC, we have the exact same tubes!
Got mine for christmas as well
Go with DLP, its the best, i have a super nerd friend who of course advized me. Plus, and LCD is i think worse quality and its also much more expensive...
