what are the pros and cons of each from your own personal expirences?
it really depends on what YOU are using them for.
well, i'd say watching dvd's/directv mostly with the occasional CPU hooked into it.
LCD. Almost same quality as plasma and a hell of a lot cheaper.
What do people think about the Toshiba 52 and 62 in dlp's?
All of my tv's have been Sonys, but these units are at least 1000 cheaper than the corresponding Sony (and slightly larger, i.e. the Sony LCD's are 50 and 60, vs 52 and 62)
1080p dlp ftw
the big flaw with lcd's is (which plasma dosnt have) is that picture becomes harder to see when you look at it from the side, so unless you are planing on placing it in front of your bed or somthing where there wont be much movment plasma or dlp is the way to go
also plasma screens have a short lifetime so makesure you get that extended warrenty
Some people see rainbows with DLP....I went with LCD.
DLP. i've been using it for all of those and it never fails to amaze me. You really should get the directv HD package, it's entirely different TV
dlp has color flicker ("rainbows") esp if you are flicker sensitive w/ montiors/fluorescents. lcd direct has contrast/direct viewing issues (backlit, blacks glow)
dlp/lcd projection use lamps that blow every year or so, anywhere from $100-$300 to replace, and also because they are backlit contrast sucks, black glows
lcd projection tends to have color haze around pixels (usually green/yellowish) since they never seem to align the colors exactly right - but its easy to ignore
plasma has great contrast, brightness and clarity, they are just sensitive to static images burning into the screen, plus rumors about needing to refill the gas pocket after so many years
