Hi, I'm looking for some advice, as I've been out of the projector market for a few years. I have a Sim2 HT5000 with a IOSC wide screen lens attachment and a Faroudja DVP-1010. I have a 130 inch screen, and primarily use the set-up for Blu-ray.
Today, I had a guy over to do some work on security camera's, who happened to say his main business is Home Theatre and projectors. He proceeded to tell me that with the advances in projectors, I'd actually be much better off with the JVC DLA-X75 or X95. He then proceeded to tell me that I wouldn't get a penny for my current equipment which is effectively worthless. I had been thinking to upgrade the projector in order to handle 3D.
Has anyone compared the HT5000 with current projectors? I am very happy with it, and the only complaint I have is that it's quite noisey, but I'd be happy to replace for another quality jump.
I do actually need another projector for a different location, and looking around the reviews and the projector market it appears that 4k is the next big thing, and I would be better of with the Sony VPL-VW1000ES than the above JVC's. Anything better or would the Sony suffice.
