I have one and LOVE it and exactly agree with mammut- the price difference was a BIG factor for me. I could have afforded a DLP but i figured that since none of this is really totally mature yet, i will want a new better set in a few years so why not save a pile since it basically looks the same to my 'ignorant' eye.

I never notice the 'rainbox effect' yet but it petrified me that one day i would see it and then i would never not see it again.

finally- as far as reapirs- although i NEVER buy extended warranties I did with this purchase- like i said above none of this is mature enough for me for the price so i bit the bullet and got the insurance of an extended warrently. Myself i wouldnt buy a DLP, LCD, or PLasma without it (but of course to each his own). And about how long it takes to repair- not sure why one would take any longer than the other- from what i gather pretty much everything that breaks just gets swapped weather it be a board or the entire projection unit. A couple of posts at AVS related stories that basically the whole projection unit just gets swapped.

BAsically go read up at AVS if you want TONS of info- probably Too much :-)

Myself I am waiting for a 3 panel DLP (so i dont have to sweat the rainbow possibility) with a native resolution of 2160p (so it can easily convert 720p or 1080i or even 1080p easily without estimating anything- just plan multiplication by 2 or by 3 to scale the picture) - that I think is the ultimate toy and when it comes out I'm all over it!
