Well i was looking for a tv and i came across a 52" Mitsubishi DLP Diamond Series TV. I don't know alot about tvs and i was wondering if these are really good.

no hold off on DLP, led dlp and SED are right around the corner.......do you really wanna replace a $300 lightbulb every year and have a chance at noticing rainbow effect and being displeased with your purchase in the future?

uuhhh HUH? I have a mitsubishi HD TV rear projection..Ive had it for 3 years..NO RAINBOW and have not had to replace the bulb and the picture is amazing. Dont give out misleading information. DLP's are mentioned most with rainbow and it takes several years before bulb replacement is needed.


Dude...go with the TV..you will love it

Yes you should buy one - It's one of the best looking DLP's around and you can get a good deal on the 52825's as they are an older model but still blow away just about anything I've seen biggrin.gif

I'm very happy with mine

You are somewhat correct in saying that it costs $300 to change the bulb, but you failed to mention that $100-$150 of that is a core charge for the cradle. If you are handy, you can just buy the bulb and change it without any core charge for much less.

The Mitsu's use bulbs, and the bulb does not need to be changed every year. This is a high end model which does not typically suffer from the "rainbow effect" I see no rainbows with this DLP.

You seem to be mis-informed.

That doesn't mean anything. It's new technology, so they will make people pay for the "NEW" technology no matter how simple and cost effective. Just because they can throw the acronym "led" in there, they can also toss in another 400-500 just for the technology name alone. LED Dlps will be expensive as hell in first months of production, I guarantee you. As will SEDs for that matter. Those mitsu diamonds are one of the best projection tvs around.

Modern DLP's don't have problems with rainbows. The rainbow problem was detected mostly in projectors, and in some cases of early rear projection DLP's. Even then few people could see it. Older models use color wheels with 1 set of 3 colors. Current models use color wheels with 2 sets of three colors and spin the color wheel at twice the speed. This effectively increases the color wheel frequency by 4 compared to the early models. As a result, it would be rare for any person to actually detect a rainbow effect on a newer model.

And if you have the money to dish out for a 3 DLP unit, you will have no rainbow effect as there is no color wheel. Only a light that is separated into the 3 colors by a prism then cast onto the screen through 3 seperate DLP chips.

While the rainbow effect was at one time a real issue for some, the technology has improved and is rarely an issue. For all your ranting about new technology, I would have hoped you might have been more aware of the progression of DLP technology.
