I haven't had time to comment your posts, but I can see Will himself got a bit tired of you misleading people here. I don't know what you are trying to pull?

I don't shop in US, so I don't know where to buy stuff, but Newegg is used by many members on WSGF. So I did a quick search and the results for a new 2690WUXi:

$1,229.00

ToastyX didn't prefer the Planar. Only in your head. Here is a direct quote:

[quote]Overall, the only thing better about the Planar is it has less lag, and it's cheaper. The NEC has better viewing angles and much better color control along with the ability to hardware calibrate it.[ quote]

Meaning: Planar have less input lag (1 frame) and is cheaper. Other then that, the NEC rules as you can see from the rest of ToastyX's comparison in the link above.

The extra frame of lag on the NEC is due to picture processing. You know, like getting the sRGB preset to emulate standard gamut instead of having a wide gamut sRGB preset like the Planar.

I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but they are not the same. In fact, the only thing they have similar is the panel inside. Everything else, from polarizer to electronics differ.
