Do you have any DLP front projectors coming up for review? I'll keep an eye out for your LPX-510 review.
We have been running a first generation 30" sharp LCD for about a year now. It is wall mounted in our small LR without the removeable speakers. I thought it was a bargain last summer at a close out price of 3200 for the floor model. You can now buy the 30-32" LCDs for well under $3k which is an absolute bargain in my opinion. The picture quality is supurb and they are much lighter than the plasmas making the mounting options greater. You should review these latest generation displays, as they are bound to be the TV/display of choice for the largest number of people in the coming years imho.
I have an industry insider friend, (my old boss) explain to me that LCD flat panel displays (30" range) will be dropping to around the $1000-$1500 by this time in '06.
I would like to see some reviews on 30"-40" LCD panels. Maybe a shoot out type review. Those are always interesting. JVC's new HD-ILA sets would also be a much welcome review.
Where's the button for "stereo-opticon"?
Maybe it's because I'm a middle aged fart, but me & Mrs Van W. are perfectly happy with our 27" CRT TV and cheapo VCR/DVD combo. HT is cool and all, but really now -- is The Sopranos really any more gripping in 5.1 and on a HD front projection system? Is The Simpsons any funnier?
End of curmudgeonly harrumphing. (Yep, I chose "peanut butter".)

I'm actually very intrigued with OLED technology. Alas, that wasn't one of the choices...

I think you are in a good position with your current TV and combi-player. The hard part would be having your own HT, then going to someone's house that does not have a HT or a big screen to watch a game or a moivie. Trust me, you would miss it then!

I have been following OLED for some time now and have not had many people comment on this technology. I saw it over a year ago when the first tiny screens were first being devloped. Only until recently has a 15" display even become a reality. I think this technology has the potential to completely take over the plasma market if they ever get it to the point of a true working prototype in any large sized format. They say it will replace most LCD's in laptops. As a transmissive rather than nonemissive technology that only uses 2-10 volts it is truly amazing.Originally Posted by Rob Babcock
It was discovered back in 1987 by Dr. Tang at Eastman Kodak and has been the basis for the current technology that is now in its 3rd generation. In the late 80's they started "doping" the organic material to enhance color improvements using florescent dyes but has taken a very long time to develop. First applications will include car DVD screens, phones, elecrtronics displays, portable DVD screens and laptop screens. Eventually they will get to HDTV but I don't know when. They are still at least a year off by my estimation to any large screen format.
Here are some good links I have found.
Kodak has licensed its OLED technologies to the following companies
Lite Array Inc.
Nippon Seiki Co., Ltd.
Opto Tech Corp.
Pioneer Electronics Corp.
Samsung NEC Mobile Display Co., Ltd.
Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd., a Kodak joint-development partner
TECO Electric & Machinery Co., Ltd.
Varitronix International Ltd.
Look to them to provide the next generation of displays.
