Well the DLP came cheaper and overall it is not too much behind the plasma. One thing I noticed about the DLP is the color, the saturation in the plasma seems to be slightly better and richer. The plasma also seems to do a better job for video playback of any sort. The DLP technology is more affordable, but IMO its setback from the plasmas is the fact its still a projection. Another off hand thing I noticed is when you go into the menu to do something the plasmas are more user-friendly, foor now. One thing that DLPs couldnt escape from is the viewing angle. I would estimate the vertical angle for it to be around 45 and side-to-side to be around 100. On the other hand, plasmas are nearly 180 both ways. Heres why the DLP was bought, we were researching their lifespans. Now I know you probably know plasmas fade, heres some numbers. DLP uses a bulb and it should last 80,000 hours and then can be replaced for a couple hundred and the TV will work like its new. The plasma has gases that start to fade out after about 30,000 hours and completely go about 60,000 hours and cant be replaced. Of course this is a lot of watching TV but if you watch movies and a good amount of TV Id go with DLP. If you watch more movies and just watch a few sporting events plasmas are the way to go. I personally use the DLP for TV and the plasma for movies.
