At present I have a KRP-500m, which is a fine set, but I'm considering selling it off and going bigger. Laservue DLP's are now sub $4000 at several reputable online stores and I'm wondering what people's thoughts are who've compared the two (KRP/Elite and laservue) side by side. These days, you're lucky if a store even has a Pioneer period, let alone KRP or elite.
The fact that the Laservue is 3-D and has essentially a permanent light-source is quite tempting, but I can't seem to find anything to indicate one way or another what their long-term reliability is. Hypothetically, it should be much more reliable, but I don't have a clear idea how much has changed.
I was also wondering as to black levels, color accuracy, viewing angles, etc... in a real-world environment as opposed to B&M "sunlight" viewing. How close do they actually get to the Kuro?
