Ironic isn't it? Seven decades later, the original technology is still the benchmark, doomed only by size and weight? Few people even know that. Are we old?

Yeah, me too. But....have you seen Gary Merson's review of Mits' 65" LaserVue? http://hdguru.com/mitsubishi-laservu...exclusive/310/
Or thetechlounge's review pitting it against the PRO-151FD 60" Kuro? http://www.thetechlounge.com/article...We-Meet-Again/
I'll be checking out their 2010 lineup due to be announced early next month. Hopefully they've gotten the price down to where it can be competitive.

I don't think you would.
You brought a tear to my eye, qphillips06, but I think if the price point of the Kuro technology was in line, dedication to the "baby" would go right out the window!

I got your sarcasm, cgull, and enjoyed it!
