What's everyone's opinion on which is better? For reference, I have a DLP Projection TV.

It can vary from TV to TV depending on how it interprets VGA colorspace. If it uses the wrong colorspace the VGA signal from an Xbox 360 will look washed out.

I have no idea if this is correct (it probably varies depending on the processing a TV uses) but I've always theorized that Component works better with DLP sets because the way the data is transmitted maps with the way the image is created with a DLP.

the green Component wire is Luminance which is essentially a black and white image (much like what the DLP chip produces) the Red and Blue wires carry matrixed color data (much like what a DLP color wheel uses).. of course if the image is getting processed and recompiled before hitting the DLP chip and color wheel it wouldn't make any difference... just something to think about.
