Try searching for authorized retailers near you and give them a call.

Or try contacting Mitsubishi Directly.

Edit: a quick Google search showed the non 1080p models are shipping for under $2k. So this would likely be mid to upper $2k. That gives us hope it may actually come out.

What doesn't give us hope is a lot of sites are classifying it as a business class projector. So it may be like the Panasonic that was recently released which isn't so good for HT.

Well this thread seemed to gotten lost however there is news that LG is suppose to come out with a new LED 1080P 1000 Lumens projector.
There are some letters involved in what we have heard.
The LGPF80G
Then there is the LGPF80U.

From the LG PA70/75 models would the U represent a model with a TV tuner ? we shall see soon.

I think 'G' stands for a (G)lobal model, 'U' for a (U)S (or North American) model, and 'K' for a (K)orean model. I believe the model numbers that end in 5 have the tuner and those that end in 0 do not. As such, the PF85U (listed at bhphoto for $1299) is the US model with the tuner, but there is very little information on this unit to date. Of course, my deductive reasoning is suspect, and I could be completely wrong wink.gif

I was wondering ? how many here have bought either the 70G model and the 75U model but will also buy the LG PF85U ?

Will you guys keep your 720P projectors ? or sell them ?

Do you guys feel that once you get the 1080P what's the point of having it and was a waste of buying it ?

If I can sell it that would make it painless.

However, use one for everyday TV use and games and with both you have 40,000 hours between the 2 that would give you many years before you would ever have to buy a projector again unless they break down on you.
That is ? of course until the UHD LED projectors come on the market and affordable.

I was hoping that LED would be more wide spread in the projector world by now. Lamp life has always been my biggest hold up with projection tech. How many 1080p LED models are available? Amazon search doesn't turn up very many results...

This thread is coming up on a year now and there still doesn't seem to be any progress. I mean, if they can make something like this Optoma ML750 and sell it for $570, can't they make a slightly brighter and higher resolution one for $500 more? The projector market sucks for us common consumers because they count on selling to (or should I say ripping off) schools/businesses who have deep pockets. Was going to upgrade my 52" this year to a projector but looks like I leaning more toward a 70" LED LCD. I've seen a few decent deals on them lately.

Edit: One of the best 1080P LED or hybrid contenders (from my limited knowledge and research of projectors) was the Acer K750 model. It seems like it was strangely pulled from the market. Did it suck that bad? Were there reliability issues with it or something?

It's odd because they list native res on this model at 720p but max res at 1020p

For example http://www.overstock.com/Electronics/Casio-Green-Slim-XJ-A155V-DLP-Projector-1080p-HDTV-4-3/6428654/product.html

At the moment, the only model I know about of this kind is an LG PF80, but got recently bad reviews due to the lack of zoom and to a so poor plastic lens that would ruin the advantage of having a real 1080 dot matrix...

 

When will come out a 1080 LED PJ, small sized (A4), with zoom, GOOD glass lens and no power bricks at an affordable price (<900)...I'll think about it!

 

[OT]: I found my Qumi Q7 (720) really good for the price, eyes and pockets to watch 2D movies and TV/sat.

Maybe a real full HD matrix would "render justice" to watching blue rays (and other full hd content) in their native resolution, but even so, the screen size (90-100") and brightness that come out of it are right for my small living room and viewing distance.

Personally I don't believe too much in 4k technology for budget PJs *YET*: there is always the problem of the viewing distance for a human eye to appreciate such a resolution.

- The screen gets to be too big (>>120", and even poorly bright with budget PJs): unsuitable for small rooms.

- With a small screen you gain in brightness, but lose the high resolution... and the benefits of a PJ compared to an LCD display...

In any case you have to seat too close: IMHO becomes uncomfortable.

 

Greetings from Rome.

In the $3000+ projector forum there is a guy from Amsterdam that is at the show and he is listing all the new projectors. From what he said there are a lot of new LED/Laser projectors coming out. There are even some as bright as 2000 lumens.

Denon 4520ci, (3) JBL 2360As/EV DHA-1s, (3) 1/4 Pie bass bins, MiniDSP 2x4s, (4) Klipsch HIPs, (2) Klipsch KP3002s, PS3, XBox 360, (3) Intel NUCs, Monoprice Redmere, Monster HTPS7000, 2 SUPER SPUD subs, Panasonic AE8000us SeymourAV 180 (195" diagonal) scope screen, Yamaha P7000s (for the subs), (2) Yamaha P2500s amps for the front (3) bass bins.

Just wanted to update... Been about one year since having posted.

Well, I went with the Acer K330. The Optima didn't have a sound output which is why I didn't go for it.

This is the best entertainment purchase I have ever made. Everybody that gets to watch my projector setup in my basement are all left with a theater experience. I've had nothing but compliments regarding the setup and projector.

I am in love with the Acer k330. At first I was doubtful but once I got the unit fired up and projected onto my 120" screen, there's no going back to regular TV's. Ever!

The only thing negative about this projector would be dark colors and blacks. Sometimes they can be hard to see. Other than that, this unit will keep me happy for a few years at least! I love it. I will never have to fear replacing costly bulbs too. I also use my projector A LOT! Almost everyday with at least 4-5 hours. Many times when the kids are over, a good 12 hours of just being kept on.

I love this machine. So glad that I have it. Maybe in a few years that I feel it maybe necessary to upgrade, hopefully 1080p projectors will be down in price.

Can't remember what I paid but it was around $500 for the Acer K330 this time last year.

I highly recommend this product!

There seems to be a brightness wall around 400-450lumens, even for the laser/hybrid 750. Once Osram and Phillips get more involved maybe Lumigen(can't remember the name) will get off their monopoly butts. Until then, expect any remotely budget LEDs/ledhybrids claiming over 300lm to be the same (green-heavy, 400-450lm) unit with different software slightly different add-ons and drastically different prices.

Keep in mind that smaller mirror surface/gap ratio means as resolution goes up, brightness will go down.

My pa70g is quite dull compared to my epson 8350 and my older sharp dt -510 (720p). After the bulb went out in my epson I was much happier using a smaller plasma instead of the led projector. It seems they have a long way to go before you can get good quality in this price range vs a bulb based model.

I ended up buying a new bulb for my 8350. 70 - 80 " flat panels seem to be coming down in price and may be what I look at next vs a led projector.

A plasma certainly has advantages for anyone that prefers a brighter image and might not feel like darkening their room too much. I would however argue that bulb-based, brand-new,projectors in the US aren't offering anything stellar in the $650and under range. LCD in this range have contrast measuring well under 1,000:1 (some as bad as 300:1, no joke) while DLPs in this price range are all using business style colorwheels that calibrate to 900:1-1400:1 CR and 700lumen (350-450lm after a year..year and a half).

Therefore nothing besides the dwindling supply of Mitsubishi7900's offers better contrast, and none of the DLPs offer a significant brightness advantage. Overseas there's a 720p version of the Benq 1070 for around $650, but nothing like that in the US, sadly.

Of coarse if anyone knows a bright rgbrgb DLP selling around $600 or an LCD for similar with 1,000:1 or better CR, I'd be delighted to hear it.
