I reviewed the LT155 not the LT150. It had Vortex processing.
I don't think Vortex has 3:2 pull down detection. If there was no motion in a movie, it weaved pretty good. But when motion came up, it appeared that some frames would be weaved and others would be bobbed.
It looked o.k. but a computer really improved the image.
I would also like to point out that at the Infocomm show, the 2 colorwheel manufacturers that I saw were making colorwheels with much smaller clear sections than I have seen in the past.
Whereas in the past, the clear section could be as large as 22% of the entire wheel area. Every colorwheel I saw at the show had clear sections no larger than maybe 15% and some had no clear section at all.
This is a very good sign. The smaller these clearsections get the richer the colors are going to be. I wish I had seen the LT150z at the show. I was too busy looking at NEC's big stuff and plasmas.

I never really got to testing the internal processor. I was short on time so I took Grant's word for it that the internal processor was poor and put that part at the bottom of the eval list.
I did try S-Vid in once so that I could test native mode. Surprisingly I remember True Lies (Helicopter Scene) looking pretty comparable to LP350. But I didn't get a chance to look in detail, so I don't want to draw any conclusions.
So, is that what VORTEX is, a scaler? In another thread I actually wondered aloud whether VORTEX was anything more than creative marketing. Has anyone visually compared the NEC against the PLUS it's based on?
