Still it is good to know it is being worked on. All the "upgrades" this year for projectors were such incredible dissapointments over last years models - minor upgrades or no upgrades - I refuse to give my money away to have a slightly higher model number on my machine.
I know some industry people read this and I'm begging you guys - the technology is there now on the HDTV side - LED, OLED, local dimming.
That saying if you build it they will come...
Well the difference between top HDTVs and top projectors is becoming huge in terms of image quality. Has anyone looked at OLED recently? Or even just the Samsung 8500? My G-d!!! They are stunning - like Chris Matthews and his man love for Obama, they make a tingle go up my leg!
This is what we want, close the gap on the projector side and bring us HIGH END stuff that competes with these pretty standard HDTVs and I don't care what it costs!!
The thought of having my 8500 image at 140" inches is mouth watering.
Get it together industry folks, you are not going to get sales putting a new number on last year's product!!
I would say even LED lighting at all should be a bare minimum - PUSH the envelope again guys.
I remember when it was so exciting to see what new products I could upgrade to each year and now its just...
Give us a product worthy of competing with just basic top range HDTVs, a product worth actualy buying if we already have a really nice PJ from this year or last.
