Just to clarify, I contacted Vivitek about the difference between all these models and the only difference is the firmware. You could flash either one of the models with the others firmware and it would technically be that model. The higher end model (H5085) just has some extra picture adjustments. I also got some confirmed specs. All three use the 0.65" DC3 DMD chip using a 6 segment (RGBRGB) color wheel running at a 6x speed. Just thought I would share the info!

Do you know what is the process for flashing them? Does one lose the calibrated settings? If flashing deletes calibration, can one just write down the calibrated settings and then enter them again after flashing or do the numbered settings change their calibration "effect" in different firmwares?

Any info you could provide will be appreciated.

Thanks

I am not sure about the process, but I do not think you can transfer settings over. The guy I talked to at vivitek made it sound like the different versions vary greatly in picture control features. I also forgot to mention that the H5080 does not have a static iris.
