I consider myself and absolute expert in what makes Fujitsu plasma the superior flat display device. From the I'll fated "Grove Plasma" the world's first Fujitsu only boutique in 2001-2002, that fell victim to the longshoremens' strike of 2002
. To a later record breaking extravaganza of about 5 Fujitsus sold a week during 9 months while working at a prestigious Audio Salon in Naples Florida.
I have seen some of my suggestions (pictures presets in 2001) later implemented in subsequent product. In my opinion the Fujitsu plasmaa was the only worthy display in 2001-2002 (flat, round or projection) worth considering videophile grade. In other words the moment the G-90 was retired (2001), not one single video projector in the market was worthy of being videophile grade. This changed in 2003 with the JVC QXILA ($450k) and in 2004 with the 2k DigitAL Projectors from TI (at $160,000).
Very little has changed since in the flat panel arena, we now have great videophile grade inexpensive projectors from JVC, and Marantz, we have some hot $80,000 projectors from Runco and others, we have the ultimatevideo device from Barco for Digital Cinema:
Fondly named the Tiger 2 tank of projectors by me for it's uncanny industrial design similarity.
I am not at the moment a Fujitsu dealer but rest assured that I will leave no stone unturned until I can offer my clients this King of Flatscreens again.
This is not an easy business and I have paid my dues defending what I consider the very best flat panel. There are no ways around it. LCD in my eyes is totally un acceptable, and it is impossible to me due to the sad proliferation of this inferior product to take each one of you on a on to one bassis and reason with you what makes agood picture. Forum ethiquette prohibits me to denonunce you for what I see you doing, a video genocide of sorts. LCD and VIDEOPHILE are two mutually excludable words they do not belong in the same sentence. Gentlemen come to your senses, if not fo yourselves then for future generations. GREY SCALE TRACKING means didly squat if the primaries are wrong and if other artefactae is being introduced.
Now you want to talk an Aviam0 65 versus a sony 70" with triluminuos LED and that is a worthy discusssion.
But the fact that the LCD manufacturers prefer to sell garbage because joe public can't tell the difference, or because it's on a childrens playground or kitchen has very little to do where these type of battles are fought and WON. At the very high end.
So as our astute moderator says before we start spelling doom for rightous technologies, LET"S TAKE THE HIGH ROAD. Take those Bullish LCD plant expansion projections with the highest degree of suspicion. It is your duty as a videophile.
