OK.. 2nd attempt.
Gerald, I have a number of issues with the Fuji but first I should mention that I am ULTRA critical. Everyone else who sees the screen generally goes "WOW!" and when I point out its 'failings' they think I am mad.
Ok, with that said my issues are as follows:
Rating - this is not a technical rating, it is purely a personal rating on well well I think the panel does based on my idea of 10 being perfect.
Annoyance - this is how annoying I find it when it does happen
. The de-interlacing on the Fuji can occasionally get it wrong, e.g. when the two main characters in House of Flying Daggers are running across the field I can see some combing (e.g. look at the guys head in http://neuron2.net/LVG/interlacing.html
for an example of combing). On DVD this doesn't happen very often but occasionally (e.g. on World Superbikes) it can happen enough for it to be really annoying.
Annoyance factor: 9
. On occasion the scaling is really poor and there is visible pixellation. I do not see this at all with DVD material, only on low bitrate Sky+ channels. e.g. watching Britains Next Model last night was horrendous.
Rating: 9/10 (7 on low bitrate material)
Annoyance factor: 9
. What should be smooth gradients of colour can show as stepped gradients instead (imagine a 256 colour .GIF as an extreme example or look at http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1755756#post1755756)
. Again this is most noticeable on Sky+ but is also noticeable on DVD as well as HD feeds from the PC @ Native Res (over DVI).
Annoyance factor: 7
4) Rainbows/Motion artefacts
. Hard one to describe this but on fast motion the image can look ropey, especially where there are areas of high contrast.
Annoyance factor: 6
5) Fan noise
. On very quiet scenes at 13' this is pretty noticeable.
Annoyance factor: 4
Now... a Scaler should hopefully sort out 1 and 2 at least, and potentially will help a bit with 3 and 4. As such, if I could afford a scaler I would definitely buy one, and if buying new now would probably go for a PHD8+Scaler. (or Fuji+Scaler if I had the extra money)
Finally, I do love the Fuji screen, just that I would definitely be tempted to marry a panel with a scaler if doing it again.
Hope this helps,
