    from what i have seen when i looked at both the biggest difference i noticed was that the LCD had a much more vibrant, colorful picture.
    The colors just jump off the screen at you. The DLP was a little more natural toned, and the picture on it was less grainy. This is because on a DLP TV the pixles are closer together than on an LCD TV.
    The LCD gets what is commonly reffered to as the "screen door effect"

    So if you want brighter more vivid colors then buy the LCD
    If you want better picture quality then get the DLP

    When I am talking about LCD-PROJECTION TV i am refer to the BIG THICK one like (SONY SXRD series) not the thin LCD panel. Can someone answer my question thanks.

    Think of a rear projection lcd as colors having to go through many filters before reaching the screen, therefore more distortion. Think of a DLP as a color wheel that sends colors through the color wheel directly to the screen, therefore, less distortion. That's the simple lamens way of looking at it, DLP all the way! Better picture, better everything overall.

    not exactly true, since it does have a color wheel it wouldn't be as good for fast pace gaming, it would have some type of lag, that is what i've been told anyway. and the sxrds by sony eliminate the screen door effect. and for the record, the sony sxrds are the baddest as$ed tv's i've ever seen in my life, i'm saving up right now for the sixty inch sony sxrd, its ridiculously amazing for real, the samsung dlps that i saw didn't look as good. maybe my opinion but they both are one of the only tvs that actually can display 1080p, there are some hitachis that claim they do but dont. not sure why people would know that seeing as how nothing is in 1080p yet but whatever, thats just what i've been told and learned during my recent research. if your thinking of getting a sony sxrd, get it, i wouldn't think twice about it.

    I am sorry that the customer specialist at Best Buy didn't know their stuff. The diffences between these two set are obvious.

    First off, the SXRD is LCoS based. LCoS is my favorite microdisplay (rear-projection) technology. It is like having DLP and LCD all on one chip (in the case of the SXRD 3-chips) capable of displaying a picture with all the benifits of both DLP and LCD without any of their negatives.

    2nd, The SXRD has a native (Maximum/Fixed) resolution of 1080p (1920x1080) while the LCD has a native res of 720p (1280x720). What 1080p means to you is a cleaner, crisper image that is capable of displaying all of the detail and color that an HDTV show can deliver. Even standard definition (SDTV, Basic Cable, Basic Satallight... ect.) looks better on a 1080p display!

    Quote:Also they both have pc inputs to hook up a computer to use as a monitor but which one would receive better quality?

    The SXRD!

    The Sony LCD while a great set for the price is Sony's lowest end LCD tv. By contrast, the SXRD technology is Sonys top of the line microdisplay technology. The SXRD XBR model is only 2nd to Sony's Quaila 006 which has been dubbed the best tv in the world!

    Yes, it's true that the latest high-end Sony TVs are unbeatable, but they also cost a small fortune. If you're looking to spend a couple of grand, TOPS, then a DLP is, imho, unbeatable. While yes, a small LCD will have "truer" blacks, if you're getting an HDTV it doesn't amke a lot of sense to get a 20" TV; you should be going big, at least 30". And when you get up past about 35", LCDs just go to pieces. As for LCD rear-projection, not only is there the screen-door efect, but there's also ghosting and blur in fast-paced applications, like FPS gaming. So if you're going to be hooking up a console to it, then you DEFINITELY want to get a DLP set.

    guess you didn't read that last post, the new LCoS based lcd rear projections don't have any screen door effect and definately no blur or ghosting bro. i've made my decision i'm going 50 inch sxrd, i just gotta save up three grand.

    Nono, I read it. I meant the old-fashioned LCD rear-projections have the blur and screen door.

    Also, I was saying that if you don't want to lay out $3k or more, then a DLP is the way to go. If you want to save up the $3-4k for a LCoS, go for it, your budget is bigger than mine. ^_^ A huge quality DLP will "only" set you back $2k, and you can get a smaller one for as low as about $1200.

    But where is the fun in that? The only DLP's in the same league as the SXRD are the Samsung 61" 1080p set, the HP 1080p set, and the Mitsubishi 62" 1080p set, all others can't compete since there resolution is only 720p. Just about all of the 1080p sets retail for $3K+.

    The biggest feature that the new 2006 SXRD "should" incorporate is the ability to except 1080p via HDMI.
