DLP technology was invented by Texas Instruments, and has become a standard projection technology in many movie theaters. On the consumer level, digital light processing offers the television watcher a viewing experience fit for kings. With an ability to display fast-moving, high quality images without difficulty, a DLP rear projection television is a sensible buy.
Below is a list of some DLP televisions I recommend.
The WD-52627 is Mitsubishi's lowest priced 1080p DLP television. It is part of the 627 Series, which includes a 62" model. Since the screen is so large, the addition of picture enhancers, like the Plush1080p high speed video processor and Dark Detailer, will help with lower resolution signals. Of course, the WD-52627 is digital cable ready, has a CableCARD slot and has a memory card reader for viewing digital photos. It has with 2 HDMI and 3 component inputs.
At 50", the HL-R5078W is Samsung's smallest 1080p DLP television. It has a 6th generation DLP light engine, and as color wheel that is faster and more detailed. The DNIe or Digital Natural Image engine is good because it displays only the sharpest and clearest of possible images, which means you will get the best picture possible regardless of signal strength. It has a CableCARD slot, 2 HDMI inputs, 2 Firewire inputs, and a 30-Watt Audio System.
With a resolution of 720p, the 52HM95 features Toshiba's TALEN picture performance technology, which stands for Toshiba Advanced Light Engine. Other picture enhancers include CableClear and PixelPure. CableClear improves poor over-the-air and cable signals. PixelPure processes images to display the best colors, edges and movement possible. This unit has a 120-watt lamp that can be dimmed or brightened depending on room light. Other goodies include a memory card and CableCARD slot.
This is an interesting television. It has the usual connections for a TV of this caliber, like composite), coaxial, component, HDMI, Firewire, S-Video and front composite and S-Video. It also has a CableCARD and a dual-tuner picture-in-picture (PIP). The one feature on this television I think is unique is the Microsoft Windows CE Web Browser, which enables the user to view e-mail on full screen. This DLP weighs 85 pounds and has a one-year parts, labor and DLP light engine and lamp warranty.
