The LCD's are meant to meet a price point and that they do. Obviously though there has to be some cuts somewhere in order to do that, so a somewhat increased risk of problems is one. Fortunately when they don't have issues they perform decently.
I agree though, when you can get a deal on a better technology it is a no brainer.
+1. Thats why I jumped on the open box RS10 when it was available. It was cheaper than the Epson , and with zero issues.
Man, I wish I would have got in on these 10s! I cant even imagine going back to a dynamic iris after living with the RS1. How about vertical banding on the LCDs? Is this a thing of the past I hope? My Panny 900 and Z3 drove me nuts with this.
If you want top grade performance and a killer dealer to boot, the RS35 B-stocks we got might be the ticket. They MSRP for $10000 but are on special (limited quantity) for $5699 including free QC and ISF calibration.
Just a thought...
I agree the 35 is worth the extra bucks, not because of the increased blackness but because of the increased sharpness due to better 3 chip convergence. Also the B stock may be better quality than the later A stock because if they are pulling them off the line they have a better selection to choose from earlier.
