[QUOTE=TCAS;2027457]DLP is almost history, it was marketable when still large size Plasma either was not available or was very expensive. But nowadays with any size of Plasma even LCD at very low price compare with 2 years ago the DLP become less desirable. The only good part of DLP is maintenance issue, in case the tube burn out you can replace the lite on the tube with less than $250 part and do it yourself labor.[/QUOTE]
This is just not accurate. Try pricing plasma over 55" and see for yourself. DLP projecters are going very strong for the HT enthusiasts wanting large displays (>70"), and there is no foreseeable replacement coming. Top quality DLP/LYCOS rear projectors rival any available plasma or LCD for perceived picture quality, and front projectors do also. DLP will be around for a very long time. The main reason for declining sales in the under-50" size is that LCD/plasma prices have dropped. Over 50", DLP is still a smart choice.
Besides which, declining sales or availability has nothing to do with whether a monitor is a good choice.
