Seems like there's way too much bashing overall here lately. What's up with that guys?
Digital of course has come a long way from what it was 2-3 years ago. The problem is, I think it will take some time to either surpass or equal CRT, to get that last 5,10, 15 or 20%. In many ways, longevity for one, I don't think digital will ever surpass CRT.
I saw far too many oversaturated images at CES. Everything looked technicolor, cartoonish. That's not what real life is all about, but someone coming from an old 27" or SD RPTV will think it's spectacular.
I've had one customer switch to a Qualia from a minty 9500LC because he wanted that extra (artificial) sharpness. I've had lots of former digital owners go to CRT due to te cost of bulbs, or having one too many digitals due a premature death.
There's room for both. I'd rather concentrate on getting the best possible image out of any of our respective display devices than the bashing that goes on daily.
'BEST' is such a subjective term anyways.
When Tera Patrick appears in my living room in a 3D image, controlled via my remote control, well then I will solidly claim that I have the BEST image..
