JVC HD-61FN97 HD-ILA HDTV
Introduction If you are in the market for a rear-projection TV, chances are you have heard the terms DLP, LCD, SXRD and maybe HD-ILA. DLP’s commercials brag about “millions of tiny mirrors” that produce an HD picture with a spinning color wheel. Although the color wheels in single-chip DLP sets are getting faster and have more segments than they did just a few years ago, I believe the more moving parts that a TV has, the greater the chance for errors, such as the “screen door” and “rainbow” effects, as well as long-term maintenance problems. LCD direct-view TVs are currently the hottest thing on the market, but rear-projection LCD TVs never gained popularity and had a soft picture and weak black levels. Sony’s current rear-projection technology is called SXRD and is a three-chip micro-display technology that uses liquid crystals instead of individual mirrors. JVC has their own “flavor” of this liquid crystal on silicone technology, ...

Sony KDS-R70XBR2 70-inch SXRD HDTV
Introduction I have always thought of a “home theater” as stereotypically consisting of a front projector like Sony’s Qualia 004 or even their new and affordable “pearl” projector and a large filmscreen. How else would you get an image big enough for a real theater experience? Sony’s new KDS-R70XBR2 with its 70-inch screen is a set that has changed the way I feel about the impact you can get from a relatively affordable rear projection HDTV. The ease of installation starts the romance. Being able to watch a big, bright HDTV with daylight peeking into the room only adds to the love affair. Then there is the price difference, which almost makes you want to get down on one knee and propose. Description It took two people and some care to place this monster HDTV, weighing in at 161 pounds and sized at 74.25 inches wide by 45.5 inches high and 24 inches deep, on ...

Samsung HL-S6187W 61-Inch DLP HDTV
Introduction So, you want a big screen experience in your home, but a 50-inch plasma won’t quite cut it and you don’t have the Benjamins for something bigger. To make matters worse, your room isn’t quite suited for front projection, or you can’t justify to your significant other why heavy blackout drapes or gray walls is a good idea. What is one to do? Get yourself a rear-projection DLP, that’s what you do. Rear projection DLP HDTVs offer most, if not all, of the features of their plasma and projection brethren with fewer drawbacks and lower prices. Rear projection DLPs come in a wide range of sizes, from 40 inches on up and, thanks to the wizards over at Texas Instruments, they’re shallower than ever, with an average depth around 15 inches, making them easier to place in and about the home. To top it off, rear-projection DLP TVs are way cheaper than their ...

Sony KDS-R60XBR1 SXRD Rear Projection HDTV
Introduction It seems like new televisions are coming out all the time now. The most interesting of these are the new 1920 x 1080p sets. Increasing the pixel count by 225 percent versus a 1280 x 720p set improves the portrayal of fine details and textures, creating a spellbinding quality. While these sets can theoretically accept a 1080p source, there are currently very few (if any) to choose from on the market. Generally, the highest resolution any HD format (HD-DVD, HD cable or satellite, D-VHS, Xbox 360 etc.) goes is 1080i, but the extra pixels are far from wasted. The most recent rear-projection offerings have provided outstanding picture quality with extraordinary resolution, high light output, and very accurate yet deeply saturated color fidelity, along with extended black level reproduction at a somewhat pricy point: the Qualia 006 in particular, followed by certain DLP designs. The sudden proliferation of the 1920 x 1080 native resolution projector in today’s ...

Sony QUALIA 006 70-inch SXRD HDTV
Introduction Have you ever imagined a television that made you really feel that the image is a window on your world of programming, achieving the sort of drop dead gorgeous quality that no one can look away from (unless the person just doesn’t care about TV or picture quality)? As someone who already owns two Sony QUALIA 004 front projectors, I naturally had high hopes and expectations when I decided to take the plunge and buy a QUALIA 006 rear projector for another room in my lab/home. The first of these expectations included an exceptionally sharp picture (even by comparison to 35mm film projected at the same size), as befits Sony’s new SXRD 1920 x 1080p three-chip reflective LCos technology. Another was outlandish light output (I measured 90 foot-lamberts with the bulb in the low mode and a contrast ratio of over 3000:1!). Finally, fantastic styling (like a Cartier Watch), as well as a ...
