Anyone Own a Panasonic PT50 DLP?

Just wondering if there are any thoughts about the Panasonic DLP's.
Any problems? What else should I be looking at in the 50 inch range? Thanks for your help!

I have the 50 inch LCD model and I really like it. I got a good deal on it and so far so good.

I have thought about the DLP model though, I wonder if the colors would be more vibrant than the LCD version.

Consumers rated the Panny 50 DLP number two in its most recent issue.

i have it and think it is great - no problems so far and i don't see rainbows so DLP is good for me.

Why would the DLP model be better than LCD? Are the colors more vibrant? I mean, what's the advantage of DLP over LCD for this model?

No SDE on the DLP and the colors are slightly more vibrant. For sure, blacks are better in the DLP

I looked at the LCD and DLP Panasonic Side by side in the store and personally found the picture on the the DLP to be better. I could also see SDE on the LCD from my viewing distance so I went with the DLP.

i was ready to order this, until the wife talked me into getting something bigger. ended up with a 62" toshiba. did a ton of research though. seems like a solid tv.

I have had the PT50 LCD for over 6 months and am quite pleased with it. I purchased a 2 year extended warranty as I heard the bulbs at 250.00 can burn out. So far no lost bulbs and pic is still as bright as ever. Much prefer this to any Plasma. All the Plasma I looked at had tons of screen glare. At the time of purchase I compared it's picture to 3 different sized Samsung DLP's sitting near by, and the Panny LCD was clearly superior to those.
