And just a quote from Art:
Let's just start this review off with some big statements: This is the first true 4K projector I've reviewed, and it's "only" $24,999! I have reviewed a few $20K+ projectors, and so far, this is simply the best picture I've seen/reviewed. It is 4K, which is technically four times the resolution of 1080p, as it has twice as many pixels across, and twice as many top to bottom. The VPL-VW1000ESt is also 3D capable (and comes with 3D glasses- ready to go).
I'm just dazzled by this projector. I thought it was outstanding when I first saw it at CEDIA '11. The VPL-VW1000ES projector (pre-production) had some issues back then, but the overall potential was obvious. At the CES show in January, it was even better. The minor image defects were nicely cleaned up, and I was really blown away. Now I've had a chance to work with the Sony VW1000ES for about a month. Bottom line: I want one. I can't really afford one, but my theater is crying out for one.
Even at its $25K - out of the range of the vast majority of us - price, it can justify that price against any of the other premium priced projectors, and it can certainly justify its price relative to far less expensive projectors including those JVC's that "claim" 4K, but really aren't true 4K.

Is he not seing things that apparently others do ? I do find it strange that everybody seems to want to neglect ( ? right word ?
) the very high quality in this product - wich it off couse also shall have with that price level
Just a observation.
