Can anyone tell me the differences between the HL-T6187S and the 6189S, other than the price? Most reviews I've seen look pretty good, but I welcome comments. I want to use it for TV plus a PC monitor for gaming...can I run at 1080p at 60 Hz? Thanks.

One of the main differences is that a standard DLP bulb has an average life of 3,000-6,000 hours. The LED bulb has an average life of 20,000 hours. I've been told (by a best buy employee) that the LED also provides a sharper image.

Thanks, but both of those models use the LED DLP technology. I'm wanting to know the differences between the two models, not between LED DLP and bulb DLP.

The 89S is PIP (picture in picture) and the 87S is not but both are LED driven but the 89S is about $2-5 hundred more.

Actually LED in TV gives about 50-100,000 hours without bulb issues. LED definitely provides a better picture quality, so you can't really go wrong IMO.

Interestingly, after reading some reviews (S&V and HomeTheater Mag), the highest scoring DLP from Samsung was a non-LED model.

But your own eyes may see little difference and the bulb savings could be a fair trade off for a higher initial price.
