How many more years do you guys expect the Sony1100 to be the 'state of the art' for overall performance for a relatively high lumen** projector? I.e., will it be superseded by new products coming out at this fall's CEDIA, or will it be another year (or two)? Can Sony offer any really significant improvement to the 1100?

**I would love the higher CR of the present JVC's, but they are really not viable for a large screen, e.g., 12ft wide or so.

I'm guessing the next major change for Sony is LED light engine, wider color gamut, HDR...maybe they have a next gen SXRD panel coming as well that achieves higher contrast, but I'm continually floored by the 1100 to this day.

I agree and love my 1100! However there are times that I miss the ueber contrast of a JVC.

A led light engine, or a phosphor laser light source would be nice, but if they don't produce any better performance than the present lamp source, I can't get excited.

Great game Do you really mean LED with 3 chip LCOS each fed by a bank of Red, Green and Blues respectively or do you mean a laser pumped phosphor wheel?

I mean whatever they can stuff in that box at that price point with the same or greater color-accurate lumens!

I'm thinking RGB LED is increasingly more likely based on the vanishingly little I know regarding cost and heat considerations, though I also thought there was some tech where two lasers could be used - one for blue and a second split beam for red and green - though I don't know how that affects light output and overall color accuracy, or more importantly, if i know what I talking about...

Islanders shat the bed... 11 shots, three from forwards for the entire game?

It is so old and outdated that you should just give it away. My address is...

The 1000 has been a great projector for longevity. My guess is the next advancement will be laser, but laser most likely will not throw a better calibrated image, just hold calibration longer. Once we get to Rec2020, then the 1000/1100 will be outdated and I don't see that happening for several years.

Several? As in how many days will you need from start to finish your kitchen reno? Several? More than several? Rec 2020 from mainstay for the upper end masses but below the tiny ubber end projectors like the 1100es? Clearly more than several.

Several is more than two, but not many. Would you like the word choice of many, better?

However, Sony will certainly introduce something newer well before many or several years...

Thus, there will be some new tech in the 1200 or whatever they call it that we don't have...whether this creates a gap large enough to call the 1100 obsolete is unknown...

I also wonder if the higher end of the 4k Blu Ray spec will support capabilities the current 1100 cannot support, so there may be some near term pining by owners next year, at least for a logic board upgrade.

I have to pack up my 1100ES and put it in a storage room so it doesn't become I want you to throw that in issue with the sale or your realty to me. Stating that something doesn't convey in the listing doesn't seem to mean anything to a buyer. As in, I want your theater the way it is, not with some cheap ass other projector. So I am gonna hang a cheap ass projector which will convey. I would hang an old CRT but my fixed throw wouldn't work. Maybe a used BenQ? A cheap old single chip DLP?

Why not, maybe you can get an FU price for it and buy a new one...the guy might not have a clue...

I am not like that. My offer includes any replacement projector the buyer wants at close to dealer cost. They ask me but will the picture quality suffer with a lesser projector? I say that's a very perceptive question reflecting a mensa like level of intelligence. I say of course not. It will be better.

The caps defense was suffocating. Who woulda thunk? There was only one penalty and it was on the caps. One of the caps goals was a fluke. The caps severely out played the islanders even though the score was not truly reflective of the degree of out playedness.

Well, I didn't know you posted your house with that type of offer. A lot of times, people simply ask if they can buy something as they walk through a home..

I wouldn't show the 1100 in this case.
