In a way, I think you're making my point. All their projectors are 10.2! My hypothesis was that they could have but didn't hold off a littler longer to deliver an 18 GB upgrade and new projectors. It was likely only a matter of delaying a few months or some planning ahead to acquire 18 GB chips sooner. As I said, if they weren't so much in the red, they probably could have done this with minimal impact. There's still really no competition in the 4K projector market, so why rush out 10.2 GB units?

As for buying a cheap 1080p, I already had a very nice Epson 6030 from a certain local shop (that talked up the 1000 later). Why the hell would I take a step back now? As long as the 1100 can handle coming 4K BDs with the current motherboard, I'm satisfied. I'm just saying that Sony probably could have waited a little longer to provide a more future-proof 18 GB solution. I think that's all anyone else is saying too.

And if Sony truly cared about early adopting FMP owners, they'd get their act together with their UHD download content. Even without improved color, I see no technical reason why most of their new releases can't look as good as the free shorts. They could even provide them in P3 with more detail and HD sound. Or are we to expect that the first releases of UHD-BD from Sony will look no better than what we're getting on the X1 (or X10)? If that's the case, then UHD-BD will be DOA, especially if priced higher than BDs.
