Anyone knowledgable with DLP TV's?
Posted 10 February 2008 - 12:03 AM
But then, after getting it home, I found some reviews on CNET saying that people were having to pay upwards of $1000 in repairs after only a year or so on some of these DLP's. Some posts by supposed "TV gurus" said that DLP is always doomed to fail after 1000 hours. Should I be worried?

Expect about a year + out of a bulb if you're an average TV watcher
to extend the life of the bulb,
Do well ventilate the TV (keep it cool)
DO NOT Subject it to power spikes or watch it when you are likely to have power failures.
Let it cool 15-30 minutes after switching it off, to back on
DO NOT leave the TV on when you're not watching it
DO use a very good surge protector
PS, DLP TVs are generally less expensive then LCD (being the highest price) and Plasma

One of the perks, imho. I've been shopping around for a long while though and, to my eyes anyway, the DLP looks better than comparable LCD's and Plasmas. This is the one I got for 6 bills. So far so good but I'm not too happy about the bulbs having to replaced once a year.

This visual artifact is best described as brief flashes of perceived red, blue, and green "shadows" observed most often when the projected content features bright/white objects on a mostly dark/black background (the scrolling end credits of many movies are a common example). Some people perceive these rainbow artifacts all of the time, while others say they only see them when they let their eyes pan across the image. The effect is likely rooted in the concept of the flicker fusion threshold. In some viewers the effect can lead to eye strain, headaches, or migraines after as little as a few minutes of viewing. New LED based DLPs can produce the alternating images fast enough so that most people will not be affected by the rainbow effect.

Those Phish shows were beneficial after all.

Sure. But attaching them here works too. Excuse the wires please. Haven't gotten around to taming them yet.

OT, but there is a Lightbox mod for IPB. Any chance we could get that Admins? It puts the rock in the roll imho.

Thanks Hog, that's the kind of thing I need to hear. I just get so damned neurotic with stuff like this.

Oh, and before the movie we played Rock Band and I broke his drum pedal It's a known problem so they replace it for free so it's not too bad, but it still sucks...
