I have the infocus bought in the avs powerbuy some years ago. I think it was branded a 3m product but we referred to it as a 333 I believe. Was supposed to be a modded 777. I like the brightness and wondered what it really puts out so that i can replace it with something as bright. The 777 is rated at 2000 but I remember people saying this pj was 3000. Does anyone know what it actually measured? Hard to believe someone took a 777 and got 1000 more lumens out of it. I have a 12ft wide ch screen and like a very bright picture. I never properly calibrated my pj so I may be putting out more light than others.

Thanks,

Greg

nevermind. further searching and i found the thread where it was measured here.

http://www.avsforum.com/t/897073/infocus-333-3-chip-dlp-performance

Since i don't know that any projector is worth more than 30K to me, it looks like options to replace it would be:

- Sim2 C3X Lumis Host (i see a used one for $19K)
- Sony VW1000ES ( around $20K)
- Digital Projection 1080P-250 (around $20K used)

or if i dig a little deeper the Sim2 HT5000E which might be found used for 20-30K?

Make sense?

I think the BenQ W7000 can actually at least match those numbers (~1500Lumens, >1500:1 contrast). Though it wouldn't be in the same league as a Sim2 or VW1000 of course.

See what an anamorphoscopic lens can do,

Not that light output isn't important, but, any of the above would destroy the Infocus in so many ways. Heck you can read that increased contrast, which any of those have, can give the illusion of more light. So again, not down playing light, but there are more to these new ones from a benefit than a negative.
