I expect this crop of 720p low cost led projectors to begin a tiny sales draw with folks wanting a portable and also with a few folks wanting something for the office.
Just as an avalanche starts with the first snowball so does improving tech sooner or later get a market share.
I remember when cell phone bricks were the thing and folks were saying that smaller form factor cell phones were never going to gain any market share??
Another year and 500 to 1000 lumen 1080p led hdmi low cost projectors will begin drawing more hobbyists.
The real threat to traditional lcd/plasma sets are if two years from now theres 1000 lumen to 5000 lumen led 1080p low cost projectors that can work in living room conditions on a cloudy day or with a few drapes being closed over windows??
Forecasting technology trends is fun.
I know nothing!!
But I can imagine a time three years from now when J6P is in a Worst Buy and asking about a plasma set and a led pj.
" so if a beer bottle goes into this plasmer 3dee set then thats another three thousand dollars??"
"so if a beer bottle hits a wall this pajama thinga jigger is doing an image on then how much to fix the wall?"
Worst Buy: well sir just spacle over the wall dent and this 700 dollar Optoma will continue to work.
I have no idea if a bar owner J6P is going to pick plasma or led pj??
I guess it depends on costs to fix bar brawl damages??
And if low cost led 1080p projectors begin to sell??
No biggie,plasma is not going anywhere in the next three years.
Folks with a plasma or lcd set are not going to trash a new set.
What I really want is a ten thousand lumen low cost led 1080p( someday 2160p) hdmi pj thats behind a wall and that responds to voice commands.
I see led 720p low cost led pj as a tiny first baby step on the way there.
I prefer tv or movie viewing to be from a non intrusive set with out of sight out of mind that comes from small form factor electronics.
The one thing I do know is that technology is evolving.
The second thing I know is if they manage to make more profit on led pj tech then thats what is going to be pushed onto J6P as the must have hotness by Worst Buy trolls out to make a quick buck.
But then what? if anything?? do I know??
