and therein lies the rub.
bang for the buck, DVDO always gave Lumagen a run for their money; I had
to have the lip-synch correction, which Lummys didn't at the time (no idea if they do now or not.) Plus, thanks to the upgrade program, it was like being hooked on heroin - when I bought my VP50, I talked to Lumagen - while they would do a "competitive upgrade," I was still going to end up a K or two more out of pocket.
I did skip the Kool-aid on the Pro; that said, my VP50 still functions well, and I will have no problem scarfing up a Pro sometime in the future, bugs and all.
Why? Simple - has anyone priced a Radiance? I know, everyone is different, but for 3-5 grand, I can live without a feature or two. OTOH, if you're my aunt, and "Money's NO object," then its a no brainer in that case also.
