True. However, while anything is possible I doubt that doubling the pixel count on the same sized chip only cost that much on/off CR. From a marketing standpoint selling a 2.7k+eShift machine with 1500:1 where you can call it 4K by the CTA standard is probably easier than selling a 1080p+eShift projector even if that one had 2500:1. Probably even easier than if the latter had 3000:1 on/off CR. However, some people who understand all the parameters might actually prefer the 2nd one. It goes to what they value more for their particular setup.

On the other hand, I hadn't considered the selective eShift thing. With 1080p+eShift they may have wanted to shift all pixels or none of them.

This is true, but since they are native 2.7k this is less of an issue than if they had used 1080p chips and added eShift. They may feel that 2.7k is enough to make SDE a non-issue for most people. Might be nice if we had the option to shift the whole image for those who would see the grid pattern otherwise, but I doubt they will add that.

I do wonder whether a person sitting close enough might see a screendoor effect that comes and goes depending on whether the pixels are being shifted, but given that the eShift may only happen in very high detail areas, that may not be a problem in real world use.

it looks like at least a year + before we'll see a full featured UHD DLP under 10K. Maybe they can shoe-horn 3D back in by that time but not likely.

I don't see why BenQ @ $5,000 wouldn't be able to add automated lens controls in that huge W series chassis. My 2012-2013 era Sharp 30K 3D DLP has electronic focus, H &V shift (the real deal) and lens memory.

Exactly. I alluded to this elsewhere and was told it was to keep costs down - but at $3500-5K it should be there.

I would be open to trying DLP at this point (even with lower native contrast) if it had decent H&V shift, lens memories, and no RBE. I saw rainbows like crazy on the BenQ HT2050.
