Expectations of the X1000
Its a mixed bag of feelings surrounding this projector.
We have the high end vs the low end spectrum of the market both looking to see if this projector is any good.
So far for me, this has blown away my expectations of the X1000, Ive had more usage in these few weeks/months of than some people get in a year on their regular projectors.
With regular main stream projectors; of course people want to look after their stuff, put as little stress on their equipment as possible, perhaps skip the end of movie credits to preserve a few precious minutes of their lamp life.
I`m not sure how the X1000 will stack up to the competition, but i will say with this projector i`ve never felt more relaxed.
My old projector i would switch it off immediatly after watchng a film, but with this projector i`ve never felt more at ease, having the luxoury of leaving it on for hours, whilst i`m doing other things around the house.
How the picture quality will be? i`m unsure,, for me its 1080p resolution so speaks volumes.I really would love a decent screen to try this on, the material on the screen i have now can be seen in some scenes giving the PQ a fuzzy effect.
With my limited equipment i probably dont get the best picture as i could, but its still pretty darn good.
Laredo mentioned before about the big conspiracy, and i`m pretty much inclined to his beliefs.
Manufacturers are always trying to get extra money out of us, (printer ink cartridges for one!), they make things more expensive than they should be + replacment this & replacement that, every little thing to squeeze more cash out of us every year; but hey thats just business.
As a money saver and on a budget, one of the best buys ive had was a eizo monitor which ive still got, is really old now but it is LCD runs using only 29 watts! (this was before the global warmng stuff of 2003) There been alot of great technology out for many years, but alot of it disappears, usually being bought out by a mainstream company and then they consign it to a dusty shelf never to see the light of day.
Even something like the casio LED green slim, is hit and miss yes 120w on eco mode, but in normal mode runs at 275w and is only 720p. I dont think there is any 1080p projector that can match the X1000 160watts.
I only mention this as the cost of living has gone up, and the huge hike in my electicity bill.
$200 for a replacement 60,000 bulb is a beautiful thing.
Even if the 1080p PQ doesnt live upto some peoples expectations, in this case its not quality its quantity (tho they do balance out nicely here)
For the most part of this forum discussion, I think its fair to say, alot of peoples expectations in general have been surpassed.
