I have a mistubishi 5500 (love it) and a 106" screen with non letter box aspect ratio (having a brain fart can't remember the ratio) in a light locked room.
AFter some time with my second bulb I notcied or suspect that it was not as bright as the original bulb.
The second bulb was cheap (120) ordered from china instead of from dealers claiming to sell OEM bulbs at around triple the price.
Is the extra brightness what I would have been paying for if I went with the more expensive bulb?
Also, looking in the $2500 I can see that I could be getting a pj with
-120 or 240 hz instead of 60
- 3d capability (not much interest)
-some allow "fitting" 2.35:1 on my screen
In my mind those 4 additional features would be a quantum leap from what I have
Things that I would be missing out on if I buy now would be
-JCVs irisless system
-4 K technology
But at this point there's a price jump to buy into those two features
I know laser and led are probably going to be more prominent in the next few years
So what do to?
Should I hold off a few more years and upgrade the sub and L/R as less changes are coming for them?
But then again I am more happy with the current state of my audio side rather than video side.
And I watch more stuff than I do critical listening.
