Well, I don't know how DLP are *supposed* to perform off of the sales floor (which may be different given the lighting, etc) but from what I can see, they aren't any better than conventional rear projection TV's when it comes to viewing angles. Which doesn't mean that they are absolutely horrible, but they don't compare to newer LCD's.

Plus LCD's are now able to easily cross into the 1080p range for larger displays. Plasma and DLP have a harder time with this, except for the type of DLP screens that project the 3 different base colors simultaneously, but those are extremely expensive.
