DiLA can indeed be quite pleasing.  When DLP is done correctly, it can 
also be quite pleasing and exceedingly stable.

Luckly, there are two new factors at work which might help revert some 
bad things which have happened.  One of these is California-style 
legal requirements for energy efficiency.  The other is 3D.

Even LCD panels consume much more power than a micro-device (e.g. LCOS 
or DLP) based display.  Micro-device based displays (especially DLP) 
are much faster to react than LCD or Plasma so they are better for 3D.

We can only hope.
