I have the CLD-97 and Panasonic LX-1000u which is very similar in picture to LX-900u. To my eyes cld-97 has lesser visible noise but 1000u is a bit sharper.900u has digital noise reduction(1000u does not), I keep CLD-97s noise reduction turned off.
I view these on calibrated Pioneer plasma monitor and processed via Crystalio II.
I would like to buya Runco LJR just for the looks of it
