Rear Projection HDTV: Good Enough

Jul 16, 2008
HDTVs have changed the face of television viewing. The HV's possess a screen, which can match the size of projectors, and movie screens. And not just that, but they also include crystal clear pictures and Dolby Digital 5.1 stereophonic sounds, apart from the mammoth flat and wide screen. The types of HDTV's are also varied, ranging from CRT and DLP to LCD and Plasma HDTV. A large number of leading TV manufacturers have also produced many interesting models. Many competitors like Samsung, Sony and Pioneer continue to one up each other with amazing picture quality and sleek design.

Being the number one electronics manufacturer in the world, Samsung has managed to gain a lot of market share and also become the official HDTV of the NFL. HDTV being a drastic launch from the ordinary television sets, they are seen as quite beyond the reach of the usual customer. But makers are trying to downscale the prices to accommodate everyone. The rear-projection TV (RPTV) is made with such an aim. These models are based on DLP technologies as developed by Texas Instruments. The particular model mentioned above includes TI's latest chip designed on the lines of DLP, yielding better pictures at the same time. This model is one of the very first to use the new HD3 .55-inch micro-display of TI. It has a reduced chip size and a resultant cheaper cost of the chip. Large manufacturers takes into account four factors to determine the standard of the display performance which are contrast ratio, grayscale linearity, RGB color response and color temperature linearity. These factors significantly help towards ensuring that the display is able to distinguish between the subtleties in colors.

If you are an impule shopper or hate spending hours researching TV's, sticking to a brand name manufacturer is probably your best bet. If you are a more picky shopper, you will want to visit various HDTV review websites to determine which one will be best for your home. You can choose between rear projection (which is usually cheaper) or you can go all out for a LCD or Plasma flat panel which will cost you more but typically have a better picture.

Although the picture of a rear projection HDTV isn't quite as impressive, you may notice that you can save hundreds or thousands of dollars for the same size TV over a LCD or Plasma flat panel. For the average TV watcher, a rear projection is usually leaps and bounds above your old CRT monitor.
