There isn't much of a choice,as they're mostly all eminateing frm China.There the reliability is zero 2 nun.Part replacement is a great big farce.Our govt.,is allowing them 2 flood our market wid their inferior junk, just leik their stereo equpt..They all use a lamp of some order. The DLP's,use a high powerd light,along wid a color wheel,that was
droppd frm idea bak in the 50's. Similar 2 the color wheels, that were used on the display
of Christmas tree's,only @ a faster speed,es using a vy small motor, wich doesn't hav a
hi rate of longevity.The LCD's.use hi power lights, in the projection tv's.,wich is anuther
hi rate of failure. The LCD. use 3 sets of panel type lamps, 4 baklighting,C.G.F.L es r mor fragile in transporting,as they r flat panel screen's.They hav a tendency of hi inverter failure, so it's best 2 carry insurance on them all. Plasma's r the closest 2 a Picture Tube,es r the only 1's that can produce blak.
