You know guys, another reason why i jumped at this opportunity to buy a native 1920x1080 LED pj for such low price is that i estimated will be at least another two years or so until we see similar pjs selling for msrp of $5.000, and i figured why wait until then if i can get this Runco right now, and finally get to enjoy true HD in all its glory ?
Right now, afaik
, the least expensive native 1920x1080 LED projector for sale is the recently announced Runco Q-650i with msrp of $9.999; How long do you think it will be until that price drops by half ? And then how much longer for price-breaking the next barrier of under $3.000 ?
blee0120 >>> That's a JVC RS55 you're talking about, correct ?
I am sure it throws an unbeliveably beautiful picture - i read countless test reports of JVC LCOS projectors over the years and they all shared that characteristic from inception - but personally i could not see myself spending that kind of dough for a lamp-based projector right now; Call me crazy but i am one of those guys who always looked at and used my projectors (CRT and pocket LED) over the years as if they were regular TVs, without any worries about lamp longevity, temporal color change, picture dimming, bulbs exploding, etc, and so i tend to run my pjs really hard, just like regular TV, 6~8~10 hours every day.
As far as lumen output i figured if i am so satisfied right now using a high-gain screen mated to a "pocket" LED pj that puts out less than 200 lumens, i imagine those 500~600 lumen from a calibrated Runco LED pj would suffice for my needs and screen size.
Just out of curiosity, before making your purchase did you consider looking around for used/demo top-of-line LED pjs in your price range ?
