Just saw (New) Samsung 50" DLP(SP50L6HX) on sale ($2499 displayed) at H&S.

Anyone got an idea? pros? cons?

I have used NTSC version of Samsung 52" DLP from 2003~eairly 2006, changed bulb once didn't give me a rainbow effect, but what about PAL version of Samsung DLP?

I tried get into system menu by pressing Mute-1-8-2-Power, but doesn't work.

Do anyone knows how to get into system menu for SP50L6HX?

There is also 42" DLP(SP42L6HX) on sale($1699 displayed) as well.

Which would it be price wise?

The big thing to remember with a DLP is that the bulb has a finite life and will generally need replacing every 2-3 years with normal use. You have to weight up the pros and pro of bigger screen vs this cost.

That would apply to any RP TV set, whether DLP, LCD or LCoS. For my part I never saw rainbow effects on my Toshiba DLP but I did see image smearing, and the so called clay face effect where say in a face, instead of a gradual change in tone across the face, the color tones changed in obvious steps - hence the name clay face

All of that has gone away with the JVC D-ILA (LCos) set I use now
