I would go with the Laserview if you are big on color quality over size, there is definitely a difference that is easily noticeable. I saw the 82838 and the Laservue at Fry's in Austin. I was looking at the big screens and the 82 caught my eye, then I kept looking and I saw this other tv and was like, DAMN, this one must be really tuned in better than the other one, but no it was the Laservue. The picture really is alot better, not that the 82 is any slouch. The color is alot more rich on the laservue.
