I wonder who the manufacturer is? My guess is Vivitek.
I really, really want to be excited about that, my RS4910 is great, but my Planar 8150 is still my favorite projector. The Planar, and the other good DLPs I've had, just do everything well, do everything right, they're just lacking in contrast/black level compared to the state of the art.
On the other hand, my RS4910 is really a one hit wonder, it's contrast is amazing, but everything else is just OK. As you say, they don't really do anything wrong, but the image just isn't as natural.
Unfortunately it sounds like just about every other high end LED projector that's come out for the past few years.

If it's only 1080P it will have to be something very special to demand that kind of $$ since others have tried in this area (single chip DLP , solid state) and not succeeded.
If it's 1080p, but with HDMI 2.0a, HDCP 2.2, WCG and HDR, and actually has a substantial improvement in contrast over the best 0.95" models, it could be very interesting indeed. But that's a whole lota "ifs".

I can definitely see it taking off for gaming, and other individual activities, but I just don't see it happening for movies. Though I can also see the line between "movie" and "game" bluring.
