In practice, people usually aren't going to be able to get the "best" unless they have a lot of money to blow or there's some fluke in the market (ala kuro firesale
) so there will usually be some buyer's remorse. Even with the kuro, I occasionally miss the "holographic"/glossy picture you'd get on a good RPDLP, but it's not one of those things that actively nag me or occupy my thoughts like PQ problems will. If I'd had the money I might have considered a Laservue to be honest. But overall the kuro's been a very nice set and it's rock solid (something I'd have been skeptical of with the Laservue given Mitsubishi's QC track record).
Would be nice if it were 3D, but I'm not 100% sold on 3D since in practice it seems to be more like layered 2D than true 3D, most evident when there's any people in shots.
I will agree with you to the extent that people who buy a higher quality set are less likely to suffer buyers remorse or regret it than someone getting the cheapest they can find - as long as they spent within reason to get the higher quality set.
