Just got the L75-A94 on Friday, August 12th. The TV is huge, but I really like the minimalist design of it. The brushed aluminum makes these tvs look very sleek. Here are a few pics below of it in action. The 1st pic is of Blade Runner: The Final Cut on BluRay on my Pioneer Kuro Elite 141. I took another a picture of the same scene on the Laservue and that is the second pic. The Laservue is capable of showing A LOT of detail. The other pics are of Pirates of the Carribean on DirecTv, Infamous 2 on the PS3, and the black menu screen on the PS3 to give you an idea of the black levels. Although the Laservue cannot go as dark as the Kuro, it can get very dark and show a lot of shadow detail. I had never seen the older models, so I'm not sure as to how the A94 compares to them. The settings out of the box are horrible. I was worried at 1st, but then I used my Disney WOW disc to do a little calibration and it got a lot better. These shots are all from the bright mode.

This is the pic I had meant to show of Blade Runner on my Kuro. The one above is on the Kuro, but I had changed the aspect ratio to full screen when I took that one. Here is a better comparison: 1st pic Kuro, 2nd pic Laservue

I like the Kuro one better, but I don't know if it's just the timing during the sceen and the shot that gives it more color and let brightness. They both look good though. What's your viewing distance from the Laservue and what sized did you come from?


Thanks,


Lowell

Both of those shots were shot basically under the same lighting conditions and from the same distance. The Kuro was 60 inch and I sit about 9 feet from the Laservue. The best way to describe the Laservue is that it's different. I don't necessarily know if it's better than my Kuro, but the picture on the Laservue is more vibrant and colorful. I love the Kuro, but the picture can sometimes seems dull and not enough "pop" to it. The Laservue is much more cinematic. I have more pics of the Kuro in action and I will take more pics of the Laservue to show the comparison.

The vertical viewing angle is really good. My couch is at about 20 inches and the stand the tv is on is 28 inches. No loss in picture when I stand up or sit down. There is some droppoff horizontally, but it is better than led lcds.

The 1st pic is from the Star Trek bluray on my Kuro and the 2nd pic is roughly the same scene on my Laservue. The reds on the Laservue are definitely different and more fiery than any other television that I have ever seen. The rest are from Star Trek as well.

It's hard, in one sense, to compare as the Laservue, if I understand correctly, has not been calibrated. I wonder if there is a reference tool to see how closely each set comes close to an ideal.


Given this, the two displays, as currently set up, seem to emphasize different

parts of the color spectrum. The Laservue shows a lot of detail in the shot of the eye...more than the Kuro, but the color balance is different.

My Pioneer Kuro 141 had been professionally calibrated by UMR last year. The Laservue has had only a quick calibration by me using the Disney WOW bluray. It's hard to explain, but the Laservue just seems to put out a different kind of picture than any other tv. It does have a Natural and Cinema mode which seems closer to the Kuro shots, but I like the Bright mode because the detail and colors just pop.

Love the picture on Laservue... and I have noticed that the colors pop on it as well - and yes the Reds look different (nicer) on the Mits.


However, I am not sure about the new screen (clear contrast screen?) that's been added to the A94s. I saw the A94 recently as the local dealer and it seemed to me that CCS was adding some minor blur/haziness - notice the bright areas of the screen and you may notice tiny dots/artifacts that seem to be coming from the CCS. Was wondering if you notice that as well or it could be specific to the floor-model at the dealer.

I am interested in your opinions regarding 3d glasses for this years model of mits televisions. Should I buy last years ir 3d package or wait for the new ones to come out?

I haven't tried the 3D yet. I'm not a big fan of any 3D due to the headaches I sometimes get. As far as the blur is concerned, the picture is somewhat softer and maybe a little hazy sometimes, but I think that is due to the source or feed it is receiving.

You're very lucky to have these two options. I agree that the Laservue I've seen, the original, has a unique look. The colors, specifically gold and red, look very striking. There is no question the Laservue simply pops.


But, I disagree with your earlier comment that the Laservue is more cinematic. An UMR calibrated Kuro is about as close to a film like picture as it gets. Well, short of FP anyway. I've never seen film look like the Laservue. Big, bright and spectacular has great appeal, there are lots of folks that would prefer to be bowled over rather than see something closer to film. Sporting events in HD, gaming, Pixar and so on are perfect for the Laservue. But if you want to see Gone With the Wind or the Ten Commandments look something like projected film, your Kuro is the way to go.


I'm jealous that you have such wonderful options!
