For what it's worth. No flaming please
Held my own marathon viewing of all the better sets available today.
Spent several hours viewing the high end of all the major lines and compared what I saw to my Qualia. Here is what I saw and what I think.
Panasonic Plasma OK. Nothing exceptional. Looked better than the LCD sets. And better than the new Samsung "LED" sets.
The Pioneer Kuros were good but not better than the Qualia except in the area of the blacks. The Qualia was more real and had less of the effect of viewing a screen.
The Mitsibishi Laser set was a disappointment. Vivid colors but when watching you are aware of a lot of " noise " in the picture. Very distracting.
The 70 inch Sony LCD ($19,900 MSRP) was gorgeous. Best of all I saw except for the JVC projector.
The JVC was the best projector I have ever seen. ($7500.00 )
Blew ALL the Sony SXRD projectors out of the water. I have to have one. Only problem was I viewed it on a Stewart curved 130' screen that was $19,900 and the Anamorphic lens for 235:1 was $7500.00
