I agree, most of the issues he has are of no concern to me. I have to say though, I'm still just as unsure about overall performance as before I had read the review. I'm waiting to see the "competitors" section to be completed. That's where I expect to find some final conclusions about how he feels it compares to the others.
What I didn't find that I was waiting for is, does the DLP "pop and wow" finally overcome the black level deficiencies compared to LCOS and LCD??? That is after all the typical reason why DLP is liked, but not much was said in this area. And with LCOS and LCD quickly catching up in this area lately, like the 8500UB, how much advantage, if any, does the SP8602 still have over these latest others in pop and wow, and again is the advantage worth the difference in black levels?
What really had struck me is that he said the 8500UB had blacker blacks *AND* lighter brights in a particular scene!!! That would mean it had more ANSI contrast, which is a critical component for "pop and wow". Now I'm just really confused
