But a 42" DLP? Seems kinda small for a DLP, you Dilapidated Lick Poodle.
They might only start at 46", I dunno.
I had missed his size requirement, getting into making sure he's pick a size that was compatible with his viewing area. Too big sucks worse than too small.

BTW, the 1080p DLPs are not using chips with 1080 mirrors on height, they are flipping 540s, and whatever a salesman might tell you, you are getting true 1080p, the power consumption of the lamp is higher, it needs twice the lumen to output the same clarity.
Someone mentioned LCDs as the best, everyone's entitled, but be sure to spec your room. Contrast ratios on DLPs are much better (poor consumers, they are getting so much confusing info and contrast ratio are measured incorrectly to suit marketing), and I mean much, much better. The TVs are always located in the darkest area of the stores, but your room will be lit! The LCDs will pale from ambient light much before the DLPS. As a matter of fact, I've never noticed any pale pic on my DLPs.
It;'s a package, and the package that suits you best myight be LCD, or DLP, or Plasma, but you can't say blindly you'll go for this or that technology. If I had to though, I'd still go DLP, safe for natural colors and lack of black artifacts of the Plasmas which are above the rest.
