I admit that in a careful side-by-side comparison the current (8G) generation of Kuros has noticeably superior black levels than the current Panasonics. (Each person must decide if this, in my opinion modest, improvement is worth the extra $$.) Since the new Pannys are supposed to have significantly improved black levels, it will be interesting to see if they have finally caught up with the Kuros. The LCoS projector can only be purchased thru custom installers.
