Eyeballing the 75" Laserview the last couple years but until I just recently got the 4 blinking red lights and did the DIY (in another thread), couldn't justify taking serious steps towards it.
KewlK, your LED project sounded amazing. Any progress or did you give it up?
Hi Uxi, it's been awhile.
No, I didn't give it up.
I know exactly how to implement the design after thorough studying of the schematics. Just don't have the need, will, or time to proceed..the project is simply on ice for now.
My SXRD has been in storage for months, have it all wrapped up and tucked away on a plywood shelf. It went down two days after finding a Sammy DLP HL61A750 ('08 LED model_no color wheel_3D Ready).
You know how it goes, new toys, new prerogatives. I've upgraded this Sammy's power supply and improved its cooling efficiency. Now, it is finally a TV built to last.
Very impressed with it after some tweaks and fine tuning within the SM. No longer see RBE anymore (the brain eventually learns to compensate).
Still waiting on a Mitsu 3DC-1000 checkerboard 3D converter. DLPs dominate at 3D. No blurring nor crosstalk problems like LCDs and plasmas suffer from.
The LEDs in the Sammy sequentially pulse at approx 2.9kHz which is equal to a blazing fast color wheel at 48X. The Mitsu LaserVue has completely eliminated RBE by pulsing the lasers at 10kHz (that is equivalent to a theoretical 166X color wheel). Keep in mind that wobulation is a non-issue, as it does not detract from picture fidelity whatsoever. All 1:1 pixel tests will pass with flying colors...pun intended.
Wobulation has not been shown to "overwork" the DMD either. Rated life is 100,000 hours, and a cinch to replace if a failure were to occur regardless.
Sure, there's no reason to ditch a functioning SXRD. They are still fine displays (the ones with decent color uniformity that is). It's sad to see where the market has gone in regards to RPTV. Personally, I'm still not impressed with current LCD "advancements". LCD pixels in motion are still a blurry, dithered mess to my eyes. However, there is some very impressive display tech close on the horizon.
