You are correct, this PJ has hardly any features. However I think I am going to prefer a PJ without the Dynamic Iris, and FI, because according to reviews I read on other PJ's - I dont think these PJ's are mature with those feature sets anyway. Better FI and Dynamic Iris still needs a lot of work.
My budget for a PJ right now is about $2500, but this Mitsubishi HC3800 looks appealing. Other contender I could look at is Epson 8500.
The main drawback to some with this PJ is the offset and not having lens shift etc.
I have my room on second floor and thus my backwall is almost 9-10 feet high and my front wall where screen will be is almost 8 feet, so I have flexibility in that regard.
If the PQ quality is good which it sounds like it is. I can forego these features as it would just require more precision for placement.
Yes the Dynamic Iris shows better blacks, but based on what I have seen and read in Art's reviews so far - one can easy see when the iris changes on these units and that would bug me.
The only thing that might stop me from getting this PJ is if the blacks are bad and 2) If there is motion blur.Question:
Thus for those with DLP's out there is motion blur a characteristic of LCD or does DLP also suffer from motion blur? Or... is it not technology spesific?
This HC3800 seems like a great buy, but just wish there were real user reviews on this PJ.
I have just eliminated the PTAE4000 as users are experiencing dust blobs again and thermal issues, and my room although I keep it clean does have more than usual dust due to where I live, so I dont want to take that chance.
I look forward to reviews on this HC3800 - To me if image is great, I can do without the extra bells and whistles and drive that Lamborgini
