Most of the LCD sets I've seen have had poor contrast (although this can be
said of many DLP sets too) and issues with "blocking" in the picture. I find
them to look artificial and un-impressive. However, I do not neccesarily prefer
DLP and would probably choose a Pioneer Elite, Panasonic TAU or Fujitsu Plasma
set if I was un-able to get a tube or CRT-lens driven RPTV.

I prefer tube sets to LCD, Plasma and DLP sets - hands down. Although a well
calibrated widescreen CRT-lens driven RPTV can be fantastic. I personally
prefer Mitsubishi Platinum Series and Pioneer Elite sets to other brands. I'm
also very found of front projection systems but I still prefer the look of
bulky and expensive CRT projectors to the DLP and LCD alternitives. I have been
invited to a presentation on Thursday night which is the joint effort of Texas
Instruments, Samsung and Pixar. They will be showing "The Incredibles" on a top
of the line Samsung DLP projector driven by Texas Instruments new(ish) 3-chip
system. If I go, I can report on what it was like, if anyone is interested.
