With equipment I have no experience with, most of what I "know" comes
from the AVS Forum. It is my understanding that one HP set, already
out, and the Samsung HL-S5679W, due out soon, use LEDs, and don't have
color wheels, but strobe the LEDs, and supposedly eliminate RBE
(rainbow effect.) I haven't actually seen either, but they have been
shown in public, the Samsung at the Consumer Electronics Show. The HP
is a 52" model, available now. Besides no RBE, the bulb life is
supposed to be at least 20,000 hours. If this is true, and they
eventually make projectors, that would be nice!
