I did enjoy having 3 that specialized in certain areas. It looks like DLPs are ancient, 3D is left behind, LED has not panned out, screen and projector companies vanished, and Lasers are crazy expensive. Just not the same for me at least. Hopefully, we can still have this thread bring life to use. This was the best all you need thread, but not too many shoot outs anymore.
yes it did seem more fun when folks were excited to talk about any new projector that was coming out and a bit less arguments.
DLP did lose it's footing (no 3D come on, this is what they excelled in!) and business class native contrast? With manual lens controls? for $5,000? Runco is out of business, Sim2 doesn't seem to have anything interesting on deck. Now it's up to BenQ, Vivitek, etc to save the DLP day. it hasn't happened so far with these alpha level products based on the new DMD (no WCG, No 3D, no $$..)
LED fizzled out but I do enjoy using the LG PF1500 LED for TV viewing. non-stop for 2 years and still works like new. My projector rack still has the 3 projector stack, RS600, Planar 8170, Sharp 30K 3D DLP.
remember I started this thread because no-one in 2012 wanted us talking about 3D in the owners forum.
I welcome all to post here. The 3K+ forum has no 'general discussion' thread so all are welcome to discuss a projector they have seen or deciding on. Screen choices or great recommendations for a new movie for all to check out.
