That may be so but at what cost, both arms my right leg and my first born probably.

"...compared to plasma and LCD, laser TV technology boasts half the production cost, double the color range, and three-quarters less power consumption."

Which would seem to indicate it would be cheaper in the long run. No doubt the first couple of years would see development cost and we have no idea what the longevity of the set will be. Early adopters will essentially be beta testers. Is very interesting though and since everyone keeps telling me my Sony SXRD is "unreliable" I guess its something I should keep my eyes on.

Well CRT/Tube is still the winner for the absolute best picture quality. LCDs are starting to improve by the day. I know Sharp is releasing an LCD with triple the refresh rate and 20,000 to 1 contrast ratio. So hopefully the picture quality will atleast be equal to a CRT.

The best tv for picture quality is still the sony 34' xbr960 with super fine pitch tube but unfortunately they have a high failure rate. It also weighs a whopping 200 lbs. The 970 came out without the super fine pitch tube which was a disappointment.

i think I heard that pioneer is coming out with an advanced plasma technology, that might even outperform CRT/tube.

Anyways this laser tech will probably way overpriced.
