The machines referenced are not $10K HD2 machines. No! No! No!. We are talking mega buck machines for the quoted contrast ratings. Will the next generation of $10K machines (HD2 based) be better? Of course, for a whole varuety of reasons, mostly learning curve based. Will some improvement be from the HD2 chip over the HD1. Of course. Are the HD1 machines good enough? You have to be kidding. An HD1 machine does not come close to my modified Electrohome 9500LC. Will a $10K HD2 be closer? You bet. Will I replace my 9500LC with one? You have to be kidding. Could I be happy with a HD1. You bet. Coukd I be happier wuth an HD2. You bet.
|Of equal importance is the fact that the team was able to fan out this knowledge to our customer base such that products using such contrast-enhancement techniques appeared on the market within ten weeks.|
