Default Looking for a new DLP.

Im trying to decide on a new DLP for my living room. Ill be running both a Blu-ray(PS3), HD-DVD player, and a WII on it as well as HD Cable programming. I will be sitting approximately 8 feet back from the unit. The ones I'm deciding between are:

The Samsung HL-T6187S 61" LED DLP
The Samsung HL-T6176S 61" Slim-depth Lamp DLP
The Samsung HL-T5687S 56" LED DLP
The Samsung HL-T5676S 56" Slim-depth Lamp DLP

I want to stay around this price point, but also I want the most bang for my buck. Id also like to hear everyone's thoughts on the LED DLPs. If anyone has any other recommendations of other brands, that would be cool too.

I have only had it for a short time, but I love my Mits, WD65734, $2300, cheaper online.

You should go to the AV science Forum and read up on the Slim line samsung's (Lamp and LED) lots of problems with Geometry that can't be fix, also should read the Home Theater Mag review on the LED samsung, Mit and Sony has some very nice tv's out right now, The Mit 734 and 833 ( have both of these) and the Sony A-3000. The mit 57734 and 65734 are around this price point , the Sony a little higher If it's anything you would like to know about any of these , just ask !

Stay away from the Samsung HL-T6189s. I got it in July and I'm having problem with my PS3 whenever I watch to watch a blu-ray movie at 1080p. The picture is bad but when I play a game it's fine. Samsung came out and already replace a board and I'm still having the problem. I'm going to return it.

You should also look at LCOS both Sony And JVC have it (JVC calls theirs D-ILA). It suffers none of the artifact and other problems associated with DLP, Plasma, and LCD. It is by far the best new technology avail for a artifact free picture. They will fall within your price range.

Thanks everyone for all the advice. After much reading I am leaning towards the mitsu 65733. But I am intrigued by the LCOS Loves mentioned. Do you happen to have model numbers for those so I can see if I can get them through work?

Everything you said is personal opinion and this is fine, but still nothing more , my opinion is i see artfacts on the new Sony A-3000, I'd look at 4 of them and saw it on all 4, most tv's don't really look all that good out of box, but can make most look very good with settings and Tweaks, To me the Mit has better PQ that the Sony, I just love you guys that try to say one Technology is so much better than the other. Yes, the Sony (A-3000) is a nice tv , just think the Mit is better and better price!

If you go for the Mit , i would go with the 734 not 733, it's not much different in price, but get more tv with the 734, like PerfecTint,DarkDetailer, 4 HDMI 1.3 hook up's (733 3 hook up's) and some other things. or for about $400. more ,can get the 833 ( top-of-line model) with 120Hz, anti glare screen, and high gross look!

I guess I should add I am trying to work within the availability I have at work. I work for Best Buy so Im trying to take advantage of my discount. I do not believe we carry the 734 and the 833 is only available through our Magnolia stores which I do not have access to.

That's your opinion. LCOS is artifact free as is discussed in/on all of the forums and technical web sites. Make sure you are looking at LCOS and not some hybrid technology.

I know what i'm looking at, know what a sony tv is! LCOS IS NOT ARTIFACT free, and for sure i'm not the only one with this opinion!
By the way , work on tv's for a living so know a little about them, And only some peoples opinions that LCOS is better than the rest, just as many opinions the other ways!

If the 733 is the only one (Mit) you can get , it's still a very nice tv, but you may want to take a look at the new Sony A-3000 ( if you don't care so much about size,as biggest size is 60") As it is a very nice tv, and has about the same features of the Mit 734, and 120Hz like the Mit 833, still think the 734 and 833 has the better PQ , and better looking tv's , but sure would not go wrong with the sony, and you may like it better, should take a look at it anyway.BB does carry the sony.
BB sells the 833 on web, can you buy off it or do you need to buy from store you work at?
Out of the 3( my opinion)
No 1 833 (Mit)
No 2 A-3000 (sony)
No 3 733 (mit)
hope this helps you a little!

I have older Sony LCOS's, a 50" A2020 and a 60" A2000. I couldn't be more pleased with both, they are great for sports and the color and clarity is outstanding. I am a big fan of LCOS technology and these TVs did not disappoint me.

PS you may be able to get a great deal on an A2020 if anyone has them in stock, since the A3000 is out. I bought mine 2 weeks ago. There is really very little difference between the two models, at least as I was concerned. I bought the A2020 and never looked back...

Yeah unfortunately I can only buy ones from stores in my area if I want my discount and there are no magnolia stores near here. I will check out the a-3000 today. Again thanks to everyone for the info.
