I have stated that from a CRITERIA point of view this shootout was not fair.
I do believe there is always personal bias involved in that owner wanting to see their projector do well,and though emotively i agree with this-subjectively i dont.
The idea of any thread is to put different viewpoints-long live that-if we all said the same this thread would have been over long ago.
I am no crt diehard and im sure the sensible amongst you realise that im being tongue in cheek with trying to rall a "crt defence".
The truth of it is-as ive said many times-i want a dlp or other digital technology to beat crt.I want it to have a fantastic picture -weigh 3kgs and cost $3,000. I want the contrast ratio to be above 15,000:1 ...i want the brightness to be above 1,000 ansi lumen.
We all want this. In our desire for this we are gasping for their to be a saviour,false claims are made for various projectors-always in the vain hope that like the Matrix-they are the "one".
In most instances emotive is the order of the day-personal preference can heavily taint a comparison(..even if we dont realise.)
Darin thinks the Sharp a great little projector-i agree in the context of dlp land.
My fear about this ,is that already its being readily agreed that the Sharp bested the NEC -this has not a.f.a.i.c. BEEN PROVEN CONCLUSIVELY.
Maybe it will be-if it is i will agree-but at this moment i dont.
Its certainly premature to start comparing to modded up 9500lc`s surely?
What will this-at this stage prove? When the Sharp loses to the Marquee Darin will say so it should-and we will still be left where we came in-is it better than the NEC even?
This first needs to be proven conclusively before other "panic"comparisons are begun.:eek:
