The first biggest reason is cost; TRUE dual laser is expensive which we're finding out with the LG (also Hisense's dual laser is $7K without screen)
Second is color; ALPD 3.0 SHOULD
cover DCI P3, which none of the Xiaomi PJs do (or any of the other Chinese models)
Third is advertising; there is absolutely zero
mention of "dual" laser capability ANYWHERE in their advertising or specs. If it were true dual laser then I guarantee you 100% that they would have advertised it as such.
Again as I've mentioned before the technology is there for all to use but the implementation is dependent on each specific manufacturer. They probably utilize the name but not the full extent of the technology like we see with how some manufacturers choose to implement certain aspects of DLP tech and not others, 3D for example.
As for LG and color calibration, the predecessor
has way more color control options than ANY of the Chinese models, including:
- color temperature
- dynamic contrast
- AND RGB color controls
Guranteed at this price point we'll get better color controls than before and even if not, it's still light years ahead of the Chinese in that regard. 😎
At this point it seems that they've priced themselves out of a larger market segment but who knows maybe in time it'll drop down below 3000.
