I have decided to not upgrade my 46" Sony Bravia. I am interested in projectors. I was having a discussion with a friend who is upgrading to a 65" Panasonic Plasma because it has a 600HTz refresh rate and the TV is rated very high in quality. I watch Sports, Play Games like Gran Turismo, & Movies. The friend said that plasma was the only way for me to go since I like things with fast motion. That the refresh rate would make thing look much better. I thought that once you had a refresh rate above 240 the eye could not tell much difference. I have never even seen HD. Home Theater 1080P through a projector , Had never even considered that my games might look great threw a projector. If I was considering spending 4500.00 on a TV like the Panasonic, then why not consider 3500 - 4500 on a projector?
I have total control over the light in the room. The room is almost 32' x 16'. It won't be after I build a false wall that I can walk behind to attend the equipment. So I am reading about DLP projectors and 3LCD projectors and that technology and it dawns on me ... do these projectors have problems with blur when the camera pans left & right? TVs do but that does not mean projectors do. Are there projectors made with both technologies? I am currently looking at an Epson Power Lite Pro Cinema 9700UB it has 3LCD technology but I don't see the other. If a projector has one does it need the other?
It will be hooked up to an Oppo-93, the whole thing powered by Emotiva XPA-5, UPA-2, & UPA-1, UMC-1. These I already own. It is time to upgrade how everything is displayed. I can watch the news or normal TV a 46 Sony, I am happy with the picture for normal viewing.
So I guess my question is:
1) Do projectors have problems with the camera panning Left & Right
2) DLP & 3LCD are two different technologies, it is my understanding that both technologies provide better pictures than Plasma?
3) Do they make projectors with both?
4) Do they make Projectors under 5k with both?
