    shadow,

    we have a 57" RPTV for a few years now... la pa namang sira (except nung sinaksak ng maid yung 110V sa 220V outlet! mga 5-7K ang gastos namin para i repair)

    go RPTV na!!! sulit yan kapag medyo dark yung room... then DVD! kapag Cable kasi medyo kita mo yung grains.

It has 5-stars on all it's reviews on all the NZ home theatre magazines and is highly recommended. The only drawback is the blacks, DLP still has better blacks but the sony GW makes up for it with stunningly clear pictures, better or at par with the latest plasmas out there.. I did a lot of research and side by side comparisons (loewe, toshiba, samsung) mostly DLPs, the blacks are good but I was seeing the "rainbow effect" on all of them and it's really annoying, plus DLPs have a spinning wheel inside while LCD does'nt have one, so less moving parts the better IMO. Although the DLPs were cheaper than the sony, sony has 8000 hour lamplife which is really better than their old models. Bottomline is, my eyes did the judging and I went for the Sony, upto now I still can't believe how sharp and clear it is! Highly recommended!

    It is quite strange for Sony to omit such a feature. THeir models in US market have this input. The HDMI or DVI input is becoming a standard even in computer monitors. Even the Syntax LCD and Kolin Plasma have this input.

It does it fast enough that the set tricks the average human brain and we see the 3 images as one frame. This is what causes the rainbow effect, some people can process the seperate images fast enough to pick the colors apart. The color wheel doesn't replace the need for LCD chips.

    People take DLP's over LCD's because they have better contrast ratios and can reproduce black levels better, the downside is a small percentage of people see rainbows on them and can't use them.

    Sir Shadow,

    I saw this during Anson's Extravaganza at Glorietta's activity center, last month. The sales clerk told me, it's one of Sony's new 16:9 CRT models (aside from their 36"). The tag price reads at P89,000.

    Nagka-canvass kasi ako ng wide screen TVs during that time. And, doon ko nga nakita itong 32" SONY wide screen TV. Nasa akin pa yung brochure at listahan ko, until now pati presyo. Doon ko rin nakita yung Sony RPTV 3LCD nila.

    AFAIK, plasma tv ang kelangan i refresh ang colors after several years (as per the info given to me by the techie at abenson)

    Also an interesting note to those contemplating to buy RPTV, the energy consumption per hour of a 43" RPTV is less than a 29"CRT TV.
