Not as far as quality goes.
Screenshots are really of very little use beyond being "fun" to look at. They really can't tell you anything useful except in some very specific circumstances and even then only if they were taken with the exact same camera settings (including focus, position, and camera) and ideally in the same room.
Take for example the brightness difference. It's apparent in the side by side of the screenshots, but it's what, maybe 20%? Without seeing that side by side, there's no way you'd notice that. Your eyes adjust. This is why people can be happy with CRT projectors that can only do like 4-6 ftL. It's also one reason why it's so hard to get a good apparent black level on a projector.

I wouldn't, IMO RBE is way, way overblown, still. I'm not trying to make light of the "plight" of those who suffer from it, but there's no way it's a widespread issue. I've never had anyone complain in my HT (which had a W5000 in it for a while).
If you aren't bothered by RBE and nobody who's going to view it regularly (like familly members) there's no reason to even worry about it IMO.
