Default A little Help in Choosing a TV

I have my budget max is $2200.00

I am looking at two systems:


Samsung HL-P5085W

Sony KDF-E42A10

I really want to view 720p (xbox360) and 1080I, I hear DLP is good, but how does it compare to Sony's 3lcd screen? Anyone have any of these two sets, are they good or bad?


Please Help, Thanks.

I would say go with the Sony in a second. While I don't personally have experience with the Samsung (so this is technically heresay), I have read many, many issues with their DLP sets and gaming.

Just for the record, Sony also makes a 50" model (you have the 42" listed for Sony and a 50" for the Samsung).

DLP is very good tech for gaming. I would recommend the Toshiba HM95 for 720p DLPs. If you must go Samsung for some reason, look at the HLR5087W which should have the lip-sync issue solved. The SONY 3LCD is a better set. GO SONY.

i think the best set available in your price range would be toshibas 56hm195. which is there best tv out. it might take an aditional $100 for the shipping charge but its worth the extra cash. check the link on some great prices. this tv upconverts hd singals to 1080p, cable box built in with tv guide, and 2 hdmi. you may even be able to avoid shipping charges if you live close enough to one of these stores. check there websites for there addresses.

The DLP vs. LCD issue may boil down to whether you are more sensitive to rainbows or screendoor effect. Gotta use a personal eye test...

i am surprised that no one discusses black levels when comparing RP DLP to RP LCD.
in my opinion, the DLP is a better picture because of the deep, rich blacks it can display.
the LCD is all grays.
